Use his speed to get past the defenseman? Oh no can't do that because that might mean getting hit. Better dump it off to your teammate and let him get hit instead.

Johansson is basically a poor man's version of Wolski with less offensive skill and size. There is a reason the guy keeps bouncing around different teams and got picked up on a dumpster dive.
