Um T johnson was not drafted and things turned out ok for him. I am not saying they are the same player (smaller, tenacious, great scorers, Yes) same player no. Some of you are so bitter that you were or never could be the player these kids are so you sit around and pound a keyboard talking trash about 16-21 year old kids.
He will surely be in the hunt for top scorer this year as the line he will play on is fairly good and so is he. I am also guessing if he and you met in a dark Alley you would not have the guts to say the crap you spew on a random message board. But alas, it is the internet and you tough guys who talk smack have never, and I mean never had a chance to make the NHL. At least he A. is getting the try out and B. will not be the bitter men many of you are.
It would be great if some of you would focus on things such as the teams you root for and not talk about stuff you are clueless about. Yes, he made a crappy decsion last year he paid for it. No one especially him ever defended it other than to say he made a stupid bonehead play. I know all you high and mighty folks commenting have never made a stupid mistake, especially one that you would not want people to comment on. Glass houses being what they are you would all, much like myself be sitting in shards. This board would be much better place if you decided to focus on things that helped ratehr than hurt people. I know this will go nowhere with manny of you, however it had to be said.
