The Carolina Hurricanes have traded the rights to defenceman Jack Johnson and defenceman Oleg Tverdovsky to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for defenceman Tim Gleason and centre Eric Belanger
In the future this trade is great for LA. Tverdovsky is a bit of a flake & did not fit in with Carolina or the Hurricane cap @ 2.5 MIL/year. Jack Johnson looks like he's going to be a beauty. I wonder why Carolina gave up on him so quick?
I also like this trade for the Hurricanes. I liked what I saw from Gleason 6' 215 lb 23 years old D-man. Decent size & some offense. Belanger will cover for Stillman while he recovers. Good skater & got 33-37 points on a bad LA team the last couple of years. Carolina sticking with its "SPEED KILLS" philosophy.
