Johnson is a very talented, strong, athletic player. He plays with an edge and loves to blast the puck from the point. He also has that disposition where he always wants to win, and seems to be more of a leader.

He has two major problems: he struggles with reading the development of plays, and he gets overly aggressive. With one-on-one battles, Johnson is nearly unbeatable, as he's a fast skater and very strong. However, the dynamics of having multiple players is where he struggles most of all. He also will go for the big hit or pinch in offensively, but sometimes it will take him out of position.

Right now, he's a 3/4 defenseman who has potential to be a 1/2. He can still improve his defensive reads, which will come with more maturity and experience.

I definitely would not like to see Johnson moved, but begrudgingly accept you have to give to get, and would accept if he yielded a top line winger.
