Look harder.

There are two factors to consider.

1) I can see Johansen's mind working. I'm no scout, but I've also yet to see anyone who is say that Johansen lacks hockey IQ. I'll go further and say that, with the CBJ drafting patterns being what they are, he never would have been drafted (especially at #4 overall) if he had anything besides superlative hockey IQ.

2) It's worse in football with their media, but there's no way of knowing everyone's responsibilities on a given setup. I just know that Mrs. Bee hates watching football with me, because I'll point out that the running back flaring out of the backfield shouldn't have gone further upfield, because it was the slot receiver who half-assed his route and compacted the nearby defenders into a small area.
