Who Is He?

Those who worship at the altar of hockey analytics have long insisted that he is one of the most overrated players in the NHL. These type of "findings," however, prove "new stats" have a ways to go before they're bang-on accurate. He does have flaws, yes. His play can lag for long stretches, and he does not always anticipate well when the play has broken down. But to suggest he's in the lower tier at his position in the NHL is absurd....

He plays best when he's angry. He's one of those athletes who needs a snub of an oversight to put fuel in the tank.

Who is he and more on the current NHL player...

in which hockey universe is Jack Johnson an “overrated” player? Obviously, this quote is from someone currently or formerly affiliated with Columbus who is attempting to prevent Jack from whining about the fact that he just isn’t as good as he thinks he is.
