Except it's not the first sign of struggle from Johansson. The warning signs were there all last season. He is physically and mentally soft. Both of those are preventing him from being an effective NHL player. That's why he is getting benched, it's not just because the offense isn't there.

He had an extended offseason to address his major weaknesses, and came back with no improvement in either. That's not a sign of someone developing into a NHLer of value.
