Jack Johnsons requested a trade. Doesn't like the deminished role and wants to better position himself for free agency.

This is according to Aaron Portzline.

Feel like he can be a good add to any top 4.

Honestly, i think he's the best fit for Toronto.

Better than Gudbranson.
He'll come cheaper than Mike Green.

And he's a two way dman. Not pure offence, but also a decently mobile dman.

Only reason CBJ may not move him is because his value is probably at an all time low with his numbers: 19:00 avg/ 44-2-8 statline. However, if they do shop him, I hope Toronto targets him.

@yup whadya think would be a fair deal? Considering he's UFA at season end.

I feel like LA would like him back.

Should Tor want a right handed shot for their top 4?
Left side Rielly Gardiner right side _____ Zietsev?
Gudbranson or Green are better fits for Toronto than Jack Johnson in my opinion. Can he play right side well? I don't know this.

i don't know either, lol. Guddy does look attractive as an option, but for me, i'd say no to green simply because toronto has versions of him in Rielly and Gardiner. We need a good shutdown guy who is a somewhat mobile, and I think JJ could be a fit. Handedness of a player though, not my forte. Lol.

Ya you want to valence right and left shots out playing their right side. But there are some who can play their off side very good, Russell does very well on the right side being a lefty for Edm. Some can't play their off side at all.
Not sure in Johnson can or not.

I think he's a good fit for New Jersey or Colorado actually. And they would probably be interested in trying to resign him in the off season as well. Dallas is a good fit too maybe.
