It’s the fourth of July. It’s time for fireworks and food. Here is a delicious side you can have with your meal today. According to Dave Pagnotta of The Fourth Period the Penguins have been actively shopping Jack Johnson and may have three suitors. Delicious indeed.

At the nine minute mark

“If they have to shed a little bit of salary he’s probably the guy that’s going to end up going”

According to Pagnotta the Johnson camp is aware and is instructing Johnson to keep his guard up and that there’s a possibility something may happen. He added it is 50/50 that Johnson remains with the Penguins.

Pagnotta mentioned the Los Angeles Kings, Anaheim Ducks, and Montreal Canadiens as teams looking for a player that has Johnson’s style. Why? I have no idea, but hopefully it is true. Although, Montreal is probably out of the acquiring bad defenseman market after giving Ben Chariot a 3.5M AAV just today.

It would be a hell of a development if this reporting is true. Happy fourth
