About where it was projected, so good deal for the team considering the goals/ points he produces, even if he isn't great on D.

Drops him off at prime UFA age - 28, so he gets a W.

Playing with Johnny is gonna do wonders for his stats, though.

So the only things that they need to do is figure out who’s a liability and overpaid

Columbus is a desirable place? Since when?

All jokes aside, good deal for both

Good deal and he gets a little heat off him because Johnny will certainly get a lot of attention. Should free him up a bit more. That team is looking pretty good.

You can thank the Blackhawks for that.

Getting one year over free agency is a win for CLB. Very small, but a win none the less.

My opinion is that it is pretty much impossible to overpay young talent.

Columbus may have just found a way. Consider me impressed.

Wouldn’t he be ufa after this season since it will be his 7th pro season?

Based on points, this isn't too bad (although his totals last year are a bit concerning).
Based on analytics, this is a sizeable overpay, his defensive metrics are not good and he's not exactly a strong play driver either. Granted, analytics isn't fantastic at compensating for talented shooters iirc but there's definitely some concern to be had here.
Having said that, I still miss him a bit frown

Wonder what the Jackets going to do being way over the salary cap? A trade is going to have to happen now.
