Avs Resign Big Bust
Erik Johnson usually the only time I hear this name is with the word Bust or in the same sentence or compared to Patrik Stefan. The mile high city Nordiques of many moons ago signed the never has been to a 4 year deal. The avs even claim he is better than we think. Well I think he is pretty bad so what is that telling me? People always say to me he was thought to be the best player available back then. I thought then even I would rather of picked Staal, Toews, Backstrom with the first pick.
The signing of Johnson gives division rivals reason to celebrate as players like the Sedins and the Oilers young guns know now what side to rush down when an offensive transition breaks. Pick the side that Johnsons on we know we will get a great offensive chance to score. After all he is American they don't know anything about hockey. Johnson has his named stetched with such other great Americans who have went first overall like Brian Lawton, Rick Dipietro, and Bryan (one eye) Berard.
Prediction: No one in Denver knew or knows who Erik Johnson is or ever was. The Avs suck just as bad with him or without him. He ends up playing in Europe before his contract runs out.
