Johansson would be a great fit. He'd fit the 2nd line centre role nicely until keslers return. The only thing is I don't think you are seeing the true potential of this kid. Right now he's playing 1st line wing with ovie and backstrom and doing pretty well at it. I'm not saying they'd want more than luo but it would be a step back if we put him back to 3rd line centre. I'd see a better fit with him at the wing along side kes and kassian.
I'd still like to keep dreaming about Forsberg tho. In my dream world first WSH has to wait on trading Neuvirth. They will get more value out of him before a luongo trade Then...
Booth, Luongo, Gaunce, 1st 2013, Tanev(possibly)
Forsberg, Johansson, Hamerlik
Kuznesov said that he wants to play in the NHL he just felt his chances of making the Olympics would be better if he played in Russia So in a few years WSH roster looks
Ovie - Backstrom - Booth
Wilson - Kuznesov- Ribeiro(?)
Galiev - Perreault - Ward
Crabb - Beagle - Chimera
Green - Alzner
Erskine - Kundratek
Yeah I agree on MoJo, but for the part where you claim I may not be seeing the true potential of MoJo. I definitely see his potential. The kid is a really good player. He's going to get better and better. I'd love to get him.
If Raymond goes along with Lu then I can see MoJo on the wing later in the year. But the reason I prefer him as 3rd line C when Kesler gets back is because Imagine this down the middle.
That is a perfect 1 thru 4. Teams with strength down the middle win Cups. You play this lineup and your have a cup run. Lappy is great for his pay scale but in a perfect world he would be my 4th line C. He could be the best 4th line C in the league, especially with added 20 Lbs of muscle.
I would love a trade for MoJo. It solves all of Canucks problems for now and into the future, exactly what MG said he wants in a Luongo trade.
