Johnson; 2nd line center?

I looked around for a thread like this but couldn't find one, do you guys think BG got Johnson to play on the 2nd line, or at leat push Ribeiro HARD for that spot?(Could be an very nifty strategy, if you get some real competition for Ribeiro for that 2nd line spot, you get both players playing better instead of merely being satisifed with a guaranteed top 6 spot)
If you look at Johnson and Ribeiro's two best seasons, they are eerily similar in terms of goals and points, and between Samsonov and Kovalev, I doubt Johnson would have trouble getting 60 points again.

Anyways, a little internal competition is always a good thing and I wouldn't be surprised seeing Johnson center our 2nd line at times this season.
