And the Michigan hockey faithful must hold their breath again

The NHL team that most Michigan fans have grown to despise, although they are my favorite team, the Los Angeles Kings have traded for Jack Johnson. So far the Kings are 2 for 2 in getting Michigan prospects to leave school early as they had done so with Mike Cammalleri and Jeff Tambellini and I know many hockey fans will be concerned however Johnson is quoted as saying the trade will not affect his timetable in turning pro. Previously all Michigan players have stated their intentions of staying but most have gone pro early, we shall see if that's the case this time but hopefully not. I believe that Johnson has more of a connection to the school and wants to fulfill his commitment of at least playing this season considering he is originally from Ann Arbor and has always wanted to play for Michigan so his attachment to the school is greater than other players, let's hope I'm right.

Update: After reading Maize N Brew's post on this, he also mentioned Trevor Lewis who I forgot about, who was supposed to be an incoming freshman this year but signed right away with the Kings.
