I thought Johnson was a bust after his first few seasons even though he played 5 games, then 72 games and then 41 because of injury BUT then the last two years he has really emerged and has 12 points in 12 total playoff games. He was a stud in the shoot outs and threw the occasional big hit. Not as many or as hard as he threw in junior, but the dude has really emerged the past 2 seasons and under Terry Murray and John Stevens I only see him improving. Chelios, Pronger all took a few seasons to get it together. He is built too, I remember him doing all that training to get his body into pro size and you can tell by his neck dude is built. Judging by how he does in the shoot outs, it's obvious he has world class skills.

The other big thing with Johnson as mentioned in the earlier NHL tonight youtube clip is how he did when Doughty got hurt...that was like when Crosby went down and Malkin showed how good he could be. Sometimes the #2 is overshadowed by the #1.
