    Seeing this and other contract expectations... it's a stress relief "knowing" (?) we aren't going after much on the FA market, staying away from contracts, etc. It's always this type of rumor/signing that grinds my gears.

    Jack Johnson has been making the least amount of money of anyone in the NHL for the past few years lol

    Is he bad? I don't know. I've watched a decent amount of CBJ games over the years and never noticed him in a negative way.

    He's not good. And he's only gotten worse. He was dead last in nearly every meaningful metric on the Jackets last season.

    I have a hard time picturing anyone giving Johnson $6 mil a year. He's regressed to the point where he's a 3rd pair D-man. I do think someone will give him 3 yrs $14.5 mil though which is still way too much.

    I think he can still play. Agree with thirtyONE, I don't watch many Jackets games but he's not as god awful bad as someone like Smith was.

    Lots of people forming opinions based on "metrics" alone. Won't go down that road.

    McKenzie: Expect Jack Johnson to Get $6 Million, Give or Take, Per Year

    "Can still play" is a long way from "is good" and "worth $6 million."

    He's gone from 40 points four seasons ago to 14 (in 60 games), to 23, to 11 (in 77) last season. I don't even need corsi for percentage to know he's not a $6 million player, or anything close to it.

    Right. Which is why I didn't mention anything about his salary.
