Poll: Should the Reign bring back Chaz Johnson?

The rundown on right wing Chaz Johnson:

2010-11 stats [career]: 22 goals, 36 points, 127 penalty minutes, minus-10 rating in 61 games.

Quote: “I definitely never rule Ontario out, going back there. I just don’t know. I have to see what’s been the best for me when it comes to that opportunity.”

Pros: Johnson was a threat to score, hit and fight every night — especially in the final 20 games of the season, when he scored 11 of his team-leading 22 goals. A scout once remarked that Johnson could play in the NHL if he ever learned how to finish; this may have been the year he figured it out.

Cons: At age 27, Johnson admits that the ability to move up to the AHL and money are his top priorities. How long would he be content in Ontario if the AHL call doesn’t come?
