Pick #31 Ryan Johnson Defenseman

Recommended Posts

Just want to say one last time. Ryan Johnson is a good prospect with 2nd pairing potential. His skating is very good but he really needs to work on his shot and bulking up. Long road ahead for him but if we are lucky in 3-5 years he will become a regular. He is young and should be interesting to watch going forward.

Ya this guy seems like he has a ton of potential but will be a longer term project.  Botts went with what he thinks Johnston can be in 5 or 6 years vs the competition for that pick.

These are examples of the traditional way to handle defensemen and goalies, right?

It is a low risk chance of stocking up players that has been happening since the draft was first conceived. Getting enough of these picks and letting them simmer is a great way to ensure long term success with little cost to the parent club. I believe EXGMTM really screwed this part up, but it seems to be getting corrected.
