Jack's 1st game
Anyone watch it. I just saw the boxscore and he was a minus 2. Nothing necessarily new for him. And probably will happen a bunch with a bad Columbus team
Anyone see how he played? I just got home and turned it on as the game ended

Officially -1. Just saw the end. Already looked a little depressed if you ask me. I really REALLY hope he does well.

Played 22:30, a minus-1, and had 3 blocked shots.

He was on the ice and around the puck for all 4 goals scored.

For all the crap about Johnson's -90 (career) +/- with the Kings, he was a -12 this year. That did lead the Kings, but only 8 players are even in the plus category. 13 players are a negative this year. Brown leads the team with a +8, and yet his play appears to be terrible defensively and he is a turnover machiner (mostly in the offensive zone though). Richardson is now the worst on the Kings with a -8 and he typically is pretty defensively responsible.
Kopitar is a 0. Richards is only a +3.
Comparing defensemen, Voynov is the best at +5 and Martinez is a -6 (in half the games played).
The fact will always remain that teams that fail to score and fail to be in the top half of their conference, will have more negatives. Columbus is not as good of a team as L.A. is, so I expect Johnson's +/- to get even worse. Put him on a team like Detroit or Pittsburgh though, and that would change. My opinion though, is that Jack will thrive as "the man" in Columbus, much like he did when Doughty wasn't around.
Carter will help the offense. Johnson's PP time may get replaced with Voynov, but Martinez is the player that will see time as a regular in the lineup now. He is not as good as Johnson offensively or defensively. We filled in one hole and opened up another, and gave away a 1st round pick in order to do so.

Quite a few of us care. My friends in Columbus welcome Jack there. Believe it or not, they also welcome Nash's departure (the true hockey fans) according to them. We have been to 3 Kings/B.J.s game there, and most people are ready to hit the bar after the 1st period. I've seen it in real time...

Kinda with Bogey on this one. Who gives a ****? You don't like him, then why bother? You've got plenty of **** to complain about on your current Kings roster.
What the **** is it with you people?

Boy, some people round this place sure are grouchy because they don't agree with others.
Of course that's nothing new at lgk's
