    One thing I've enjoyed is following his journey since draft day. The day he was drafted a bunch of Swedish posters told us to keep an eye on him and that he may be a steal. So there was intrigue right away. He then produced in Sweden, the World jrs, on the Marlies and led us to a Calder Cup. Now he's producing on the Leafs. A great story and a late round pick producing for us, something we need more of.

    Andreas Johnsson has the potential to be a consistent 50-60 point guy IMO. We need to find a way to lock him in for cheap long term. I'd easily sign him for ~15M/5 years...wonder if his agent would.

    He plays with heart and a little grit too. Him and Kapenen are the underrated guys on the team they also have good scoring abilities.

    I hope he's one of those late round Swedish guys who slowly evolves into a superstar. Like how the heck did Daniel Alfredsson just keep getting better? Hope it's a career trajectory like that... with us.

    We're not shy about these underhanded tactics. They burned a year off Nylander's ELC to keep his AAV low. Matthews and Marner will each make ~$12.
