I guess I just show up to games that are enjoyable to watch, but I was entertained tonight. 2nd period had some lawls, but overall, good hockey game on both sides.
I have always loved the way Chaz Johnson plays, but man does he give up on plays when things don't go his way. That guy has the tools, but I just don't think he has the mentality to fulfil his potential, and it's to late in his career to change that mindset, IMO.
1st & 3 rd periods..well played..2nd..a yawner
C. Johnson...is a slug & uses his elbows..Coyle set him straight in the game when Johnson took a run at him and Coyle took him down
Why no Meissner?
Calf problem from warmups on Friday night.
Johnson didn't look like a slug when he flew down the left side with the puck, and outskated 2 Komets in the process. He also made himself known, to the point of players focusing on getting hit rather then making a play. He's not going to score a lot of goals, but he's never played a game that I didn't know he was there.
Chaz Johnson is an old has-been cheap shot artist.
Not sure what that says about Schrock then if Johnson is an old, has been, cheap shot artist?....
Johnson skates a regular shift, has better stats, hits everything in sight, skates with an edge and occupies a space in everyone's head because of it...
I remember a few years ago when the Komets tried to sign him...
Johnson skates very short shifts...we timed some of them...he is definitely a cheap shot guy...Schrock is not...glad they did not sign him
Thx 4 response on Meisner...
There were two guys I was focused on throughout the game last night. Marino and Johnson, for two entirely different reasons. Both guys lived up to expectations on what I wanted to see when it came to entertainment value. Johnson has always been a favorite of mine, and would be everyone's favorite if he wore a K's sweater.
Depending on the situation, I would take Chaz Johnson. Size, experience in the AHL, an edge to his game. I guess I don't have a "dog" in this fight, and comparing him to Schrock may be unfair to both of them. "Who" mentions short shifts. Isn't it Schrock who is seeing less ice time as the season goes on?
So, whatever. Don't we really, in the end, just "root" for the jersey (and whoever wears it)?
But I would have no problem with Johnson being a Komet.
Who, the definition of a short shift has changed drastically over the years. I thought his shifts were actually pretty lengthy, depending on puck possession. Johnson has never been a guy to stay out for an extended period of time. Regardless of how short his shifts were, they were all meaningful, and in the end that's what matters.
