Florida Was Almost Down to Only One Tyler Johnson
There's a school of thought that advises those with common family names to give their newborns unique first names.
However, that's not always the case.
Seems the name Tyler just isn't as unique as it used to be.
Well, you does if your name's on the back of a pro jersey.
And what are the odds of that being duplicated twice in the same state?
So, now it's down to Tyler Johnson the Puckster to maintain the status quo. His contract is up at the end of the 2016-2017 season. Given the Lightning's recent contract action, it could take either a roster shakeup or financial wizardry to keep him.
If that's the case, maybe the Panthers will be interested.
Florida's the land of crazy stuff, so they can't fall back.
