Eklund:Rumor: Jack Johnson (LAK) to the Hawks (e2)


[quote=Eklund]*The Hawks, a team with cap space to use, are interested in Kings d-man Jack Johnson... It is curious to me if there is a fit there for LA however. The Kings want a top 6 forward and a d replacement (not of jj's caliber of course). One source told me he expected there to be "another team involved and I wouldn't e surprised if it was a three-way deadline deal...the kind we have seen the Kings get involved with before."[/Quote] We are definitely in the market for a dman, Johnson is a name that's out there. He averages 16 minutes a game this year, only 1 minute 33 seconds (5th best) in terms of SHTOI. I'm guessing this is hot air, but it's worth keeping an eye on.
