    I really do not think Johnsson loses his spot after tonight. I see this guy coming in a being a force on the PP and may even score a couple of goals tonight. I have a strong feeling this guy is going to produce tonight.

    At the time, it was suggested that he must have received some assurances that he'd get a regular roster spot moving forward, or at the very least, into next year (no JvR).

    I think he signed based on that ackowledgment, saw how things played out, and then realized that he'd made a mistake - so that's where the trade request chatter came from recently.

    As for the contract - I think he had to sign. He has so little NHL experience, there's no guarantee he would have found that sort of deal in free agency. I know it's convenient to say SOMEONE would have taken a risk on him, but you never know

    Johnsson was only an emergency recall, so he can't stay unless we waive or trade someone else.
    It's more likely he gets sent back down, imo. Let him lead the Marlies in the playoffs. If the Marlies are out before the Leafs, call him up.

    I think Johnsson was a regular call up, Rosen was the emergency one with the Dermott illness.

    Only can hope he comes in and takes a spot. We need some magic heading into the playoffs.

    While I think one can make a decent argument in favour of both 4C trades - I do suspect if Dubas or Hunter is GM next season the team will be more reluctant to trade high picks so frequently

    Edit: trades not taxes

    Sorry I don't, I read the article in passing and really didn't pay much attention to the details. I was multi-tasking when I was reading the article.

    Is a pick in the 50s really that high?

    That's too bad because I loved it in the original form. I thought quite jiggle of it.

    This has nothing at all to do with Leivo.

    Johnsson's performance will have more of a bearing on what they do with JVR.

    Maybe we should wait and see how he actually plays before jumping to these conclusions.

    I'm very doubtful that he would displace Connor Brown.

    Well, at least we're setting the bar at reasonable levels!

    I think what happens with JVR has already been decided. He will get offers from other GM's we won't be matching. All of our sophmores are scoring less this year. You add Kapanen and Johnson and you let someone else pay JVR $6.5M. He hasn't been that great this year, especially of late. No big goals, no ot winners, no go ahead in a tight game. He is a PP specialist and that wont be our weakness next year .

    Nice optimism but this is just an audition for next year. Unless there's an injury this is our lineup heading into the playoffs.

    Hyman Matthews Nylander
    Marleau Kadri Marner
    JVR Bozak Brown
    Komarov Plekanec Kapanen

    anything less than a 4 goal debut would be a massive failure

    I’d consider 1st and 2nds to be higher picks (subjective i suppose, but that’s how i see them).

    It has everything to do with Leivo - he's overlooked again for a winger spot in this lineup.

    The JvR decision is made - he's not coming back

    You didn't manage to catch the game tonight, did you?

    I missed the game did Johnsson return after the Radulov hit?
