    Didn't want to start a new thread, but my search for recent threads to bump uncovered silly threads or ones tying him to other players.

    So alas here is a Johnsson thread. I like what he has brought of late. 5 goals and 5 assists in his last 7 games. Love the speed and has a nice set of hands.

    Mango has been unreal, putting up those stats with the icetime he gets. Also not afraid to take a hit or get chippy in front of the net.

    People posting hot takes about Kapanen and then Johnsson. Some people will never learn that a small sample size of games playing on the 4th line is basically meaningless.

    One of my favourites, and he's been for a few years now.

    Johnsson Matthews Kapanen
    Hyman Tavares Marner
    Marleau Kadri Nylander

    Flip Kapanen and Nylander as needed.

    I would run:

    Marleau - Matthews - Nylander
    Hyman - Tavares - Marner
    Johnsson - Kadri - Kapanen

    Keep Nylander with Matthews, that duo is insane once it gets back to regular form.
    Keep Johnsson/Kapanen duo with Kadri to form an insane 3rd line, like some of us projected at the start of the season.

    Do I want Marleau in our top-9? Nope. But oh well.

    It was funny seeing people write this guy off. He just needed a better opportunity with the right players, he's a skilled guy.

    Kadri brings out the best in Marleau, who doesn't work well at all with Matthews. I'd have Johnsson on that top line.

    He’s a really good player. Won’t he be one of the casualties of the cap?

    Johnsson won't. He doesn't have the production and the leafs can take him to arb.

    Credit for him coming out of that early season slump.

    I wouldn't mind seeing him and Kapanen with Matthews for another game...if it works...we win games....and we can see we're out chancing the other team, then maybe just roll with it?

    If Hyman-Tavares-Marner is staying...

    I think we end up coming back to...is Nylander expendable? Not a bad player etc. Yes he's damn rusty, like he's going to need 10-15 games to look right.

    That being said, if we have a functional top 6 and Marleau-Kadri can hold down a solid 3rd line....Nylander is a damned expensive luxury. I don't think anyone can deny our defense needs an upgrade. That being said, Dubas promised Nylander he isn't going to move him so, unlikely we see a move.

    Johnsson might still be a ROY candidate.

    He was rusty early on but has really shown chemistry with better players of late. The perfect complimentary player for a skilled centerman like Matthews.

    He’s got the speed and hands to keep up. Great late round gem.

    Thank you Thommie Bergman.
