man i can't believe how so many of you guys are selling this guy short.

look at some other centers and their first year production:

thornton, 7 pts in 55 games
kesler, 23 pts
sedin, 29 pts
lecavalier, 28 pts
staal, 31 pts

sure these guys were higher overall picks (kesler was closer to m.jo at 23rd overall).

The fact is johansson has shown some flashes of brilliance, and i suspect if he is given the opportunity, he could easily become a potent force on offense. Who knows what his ceiling will be, it will depend a lot on whether he is given significant powerplay time or not.
