From the burning bush:
On Dustin Brown and Jack Johnson...
Sources are telling me that if Kovalchuk were to end up in LA, Dustin Brown and Jack Johnson could be part of a deal. Even if they aren't in that deal I would put the chances that either/or is still a King on March 4th at only 30%. I am not saying I agree with moving either, but rather going on sources.
Me, last night to Matthew Barry:
I would do Brown, Johnson, Zatkoff and a pick for Kovalchuk and, say, Colby Armstrong. But that's just me.
Also, I think it would be a good idea to bring in another middle-aged boring rock of a stay-at-home defenseman, and then also bring up Voynov to replace the power play brilliance of Jack Johnson.
Segal/Handzus/Armstrong (or some other capable fourth-liner, I don't care)
