Mike Johnson

from belleville news democrat


Veteran free-agent Mike Johnson is in camp on a tryout basis and skated in practice Sunday with the Blues. The 32-year-old right winger had 11 goals and 31 points in 80 games with Montreal last season.

"We certainly need to show him the right level of respect and we need to evaluate him in some games," Murray said.

Johnson's best season was in 2002-03 with Phoenix, when he netted 23 goals and 63 points. He has 127 goals and 370 points in 640 NHL games.

habs fan

I'm a Habs fan and this is a good pickup.
He played great in a checking role last season, but can also show offensive flair as he did in Phoenix.

MJ would be fine instead of Hinote, RJ or Mayers. But in addition to

Mike Johnson is a terrific player. I wish we could've kept him in Montreal, but sadly that wasn't the case. I hope he gets signed by you guys.

I guess you're already leading the league in Johnsons. But really, with the situation he's in, whoever signs him will probably be getting a bargain. The good thing with him is that he can take any job you give him. If it's with the Mayers/RJ types on a checking line, he'll step in and do it well. If Rucinsky or somebody gets hurt in somewhat more of a scoring role, he can step in there. And if you end up with too many players, well, somewhere along the line some team is going to need help, and having a bargain-salaried Johnson available might draw you a pick or something you wouldn't otherwise have had the opportunity to get.

I like his game a lot. Any further news on Mike Johnson. I think he and Tanabe would be good additions, as long as we understand what we are getting in Tanabe.

I still think we might have the opportunity to move a D (Backman maybe) for a forward if the right deal presents itself, especially if we sign Tanabe.

Where would they fit him? Second line RW or a Johnson-Johnson duo on the fourth line? Bye bye to Cajanek or Hinote?

Hinote isn't going anywhere. For anyone thinking the team will ship him to Peoria ... they're not.

Cajanek is looking very much like the odd man out - even if Mike Johnson doesn't get signed. If Perron stays up, he's truly a player without a team.

Mike Johnson will be signed today by the Blues, giving us three (3) Johnsons on the roster.

M. Johnson isn't signed yet.

Per JR

Mike Johnson is still expected to sign a contract with the Blues, but it may not happen until tomorrow. Sources said that Johnson will likely be with the team Thursday in Phoenix after the sides iron out a one-year contract.

Officially signed today, 1 year deal worth $750k.

Good move for the price if he can put up decent numbers like in the years past.

Good pickup for the Blues! 41 points last year and he only gets paid $750K?? Man, I really wish the Canucks had at least tried him out first...

And yes, three Johnsons is quite amusing.
