KuklasKorner : Puck Stops Here : Howson Must Go
The Blue Jackets gave up talent in Jeff Carter, Antoine Vermette, Sami Pahlsson and Grant Clitsome. The most significant player coming their way is Jack Johnson. Johnson was a first round pick (third overall) and has represented his country in the Olympics, but he is not a very good defenceman. He has a perennially bad +/- rating and is consistently the worst player on his team by Corsi rating. When Johnson is on the ice, the opponents tend to have the puck and score regardless of who Johnson plays with.
