OK. Here’s even more on goalie Brent Johnson, who I’m beginning to think I’m obsessed with.
It seems three teams are interested in Johnson: the Blackhawks, the Columbus Blue Jackets, and the LA Kings.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Hawks aren’t really interested, though.
Johnson is definitely a fixer-upper. The Kings are the only of the three with a shot at making into the playoffs. I’d think they’d want more of a sure thing to backup the always-questionable Roman Cechmanek. I also think St. Louis would have dealt Johnson if there was any kind of real interest in him. Just getting anything for him, even a third round pick or something, would be better than nothing.
Oh. And if things weren’t horrible enough the injury-addled Hawks, Steve Sullivan’s knee could be seriously hurt. Worst of all, it was from colliding with fellow Hawk Stephane Robidas.
Why do we always hurt the ones we love (or work with)?
UPDATE: Whew! It’s just a deep brusie.
