First bit of "bigger" news finally starting to break. Kovalchuk to the Kings, Sherry traded to Sabres and pens looking to pick up Jack Johnson. Wondering if there will be bigger news to come soon too.
I’m disgusted they dumped a guy(Sheary) who in his 2 years was a playoff point machine and a great energy boost for a guy who’s best years were 4-5 yrs ago and a healthy scratch for Columbus in the playoffs.... if that’s how they “bolster” the D, get ready for the hockey version of those Dan Fouts charger teams of the early 80’s.
Jack Johnson is fifth among defenseman in the NHL at clearing puck out of offensive zone, logged way too many minutes for a team that's system revolves around playing in its own zone. Less minutes for him and Letang could help both plus playing on a team whose system is around offensive pressure will help as well. They also have done pretty good at transforming struggling D men (Daley, Schultz, Hainsey). Sheary had 30 points in 79 regular season games last year and 19 points in 57 career playoff games......

I generally always liked Sheary - as he was high energy most of the time. But he had no goals and 2 assists in this year's playoffs. Not exactly a "playoff point machine". Johnson had a bad year - but maybe a change in scenery will help. Its worth waiting to see how this will work out..

So the so called arm chair gms on here don't like the jj move boy I'm glad you guys aren't real gms
Wrestling... What Men do during boys basketball season
Everyone is still allowed an opinion. I don’t mind the signing of JJ.... but hate the dumping of sheary to make room. Glad I don’t have to make those decisions. But seems to make more sense to keep the younger healthier talent . And sheary of all people. How many Undrafted guys play that big a role on a cup team their first 2 years in the league?
