You seem to be in a state of belligerent denial regarding Johansen's behavior. Further, not one of the examples you've cited has ever been associated with being a quitter.

But, thanks for the video. Good stuff.
I study history, and I'll eventually find an example that resonates. If I don't, then I don't regard that as my issue.

You make an empirical statement about "Johansen's behavior", as if you have any clue. I'll be the first to admit that I don't have a clue; at this point, everything is whispers and innuendo. We just saw Brad Richards made a healthy scratch last night in a playoff game for reasons related to his play, and this was by a coach who he has a long history with. Is Richards injured? Is he lazy? Is there another issue? If anyone can dig up anything and disseminate it worldwide quickly, it's the New York media.

I remember the 1990 World Series, when Tony LaRussa benched Terry Steinbach (All-Star catcher) in favor of journeyman Jamie Quirk, and Jose Canseco (in his prime) for Willie McGee. Now, that World Series was against the Reds, so I guess it'll have to be the 1990 Reds and not the 1972 version.

Belligerent denial...that's adorable. The only thing I deny is intimate knowledge of the facts regarding Johansen in the AHL playoffs, because that's honest. If only certain others would do the same.
