The issue with the Nash comparison is that Nash was 1. a goal scorer and 2. a goal scorer whose biggest strength has always been his ability to create his own chances. Johansen is a Playmaker, he relies on the talent around him to to finish. If he doesn't have guys around him that can finish he will struggle unless he can transform his game, no matter how talented he is.
