Huh. That's a solid deal, no? 

Per Vogl his original ask was 5 years 5 Million. This works very well

I feel like this guy's a center the way JT Miller is a center the way Sam Reinhart is a center the way Ville Leino is a center

There's our 2C?

It's a great deal as long as he's not our answer at 2C.

Sir. One of these is not like the others.

That's the best they could do?

Yeah, that's my impression.  He plays the left side though; I thought we were okay on the left?

That's the impression I get too, but 2 year term (I know it's for injury reasons) does line up perfectly with when Casey should be ready for that role

Does anyone know which wing side he plays? If it's LW that's a pretty big indication he's our 2C IMO. Plus, if he is, maybe we can get Ehlers now through Risto?

Obviously.  It's called hyperbole to make a point.

Yeah I don't mean to compare their quality as players, just the "always listed as a W/C and you shouldn't just pencil them into C and you should try to get an established 2C anyway" type of thing. 

I can't say I know much of anything about Johansson other than I wanted him when the Devils signed him.

Does he play left? If he does he's our 2C then I think

Shoots left.  Wiki shows him as a Left Wing (not that Wiki is a prime source of hockey info).  Hockey Reference has him listed simply as C/W.  Elite Prospects sez LW.

His is called a joke to make a laugh 😉

A good indicator but not definitive of where he plays

I’m fine with him as short term 2c. Give mitts and cozens time to develop. If mitts or say Reinhart beat him out there, great. I wouldn’t stop my pursuit for someone better though. 

If he’s listed as LW idk if that makes sense. We have more than enough LWs

I don't know if it's the best they could do, but Johansson has primarily played center, no?

No, he's played primarily wing with the occasional stint at center.

True, but sources that list a specific forward position say LW; otherwise I guess he can play anywhere on a forward line?

He broke into the league with the Caps as a center, but his faceoff [attempts] dropped year by year. He's been a winger exclusively the last few seasons.

As for the player, there's the health worry (concussions), but the term is fantastic, the pricetag is good, and he is definitely middle 6. Logjam on the left wing.

Yup. Although, he has played every forward position in the NHL, but really only played center when the Caps were stretched pretty thin.

I'll be surprised if this is their answer at 2C.

I know he's not Leino but that reeks of Leino

I hope he can at least play RW. Does anyone know his style of play at all?
