There is no doubt in my mind that Schwein saw this and rubbed out a few.

Hopefully because you’ve been drinking.

They also don't have a home arena, they just lost their franchise player, it looks like they will have a 1st line, a 3rd line and two 4ths, they have the highest tax rates in the US. No one is coming to the Isles without getting substantially overpaid.

I made no effort to make it good. The alignment and proportions are all off.

Don't (frank)ing kill me here, just a question because Trotz has a history of doing this. What are the chances he's trying to groom Johnston into a Wilson type player? I know everyone hates Wilson for his career ending hit on Visnovsky, but players take note when he's on the ice. Wilsons point totals dating back to 2013-14 season are 10, 17, 23, 19 and 35 - most in 82 game seasons. And the 35 pts were with Ovechkin on the top line. Johnston had 6 pts in 24 games last yr. Just spitballing, but it's a possibility. Just trying to rationalize the crazy contracts of the past week or so.

Entirely possible.

Didn’t he do the same with Tootoo in Nashville?

Not sure about Tootoo. But he loved Wilson, and I don't blame him. Although the term is 2 if not 3 years too long, it may be the logic.

Wilson was a 1st round pic and has literally way more talent, martin would be a better candidate

Our star player is now Barzal. There is no way Johnston could keep up with him. Plus Johnston's goals were lucky deflections. I give him credit for going to the net because very few Isles did other than Lee. I still don't see how he earned a one way deal for a single year let alone four years.

Wilson ain’t that talented. He only put up 35 points playing with Ov, Backstrom and Kuznetsov. I’m pretty sure Kassian could do the same thing playing with McDavid and Nuge.

Didn't realize he was a 1st rounder. Not your typical 1st round choice. As I said, just trying to rationalize the Johnston contract.

He still can skate and hit and create turnovers on the forecheck and that helps

I'm not saying it's happening this year, it took Wilson 4 or 5 to earn top line minutes. And, have you seen most of Wilsons goals. They're not exactly Barzel to Eberle type goals...

Totally. He knows his role and does it well. But he isn’t a top 6 scorer; rather an energy forward that can keep up with top 6 players.
