I don't know about next year, but he certainly has high scoring potential. I keep saying that he's a very deceptive player, and his deceptiveness goes unnoticed because the plays he make go unfinished by his teammates. If those chances get converted everyone would be getting wet over how great of an assist Joey had. It's the same reason Rick Nash wasn't ever thought of as a good playmaker here due to the inability of his teammates to score, and unfortunately for Johansen he can't carry an offense single-handedly like Nash. He needs some help. I don't get why Richards doesn't play him with Atkinson more, they look great together and they compliment each other very well.
