It's almost like asking if we'd take Dubinsky for Galchenyuk.
So they expect how many points by Johansen next season?
For now, his first season had a pace of 26 points and his second season is a pace of 25 points (12 points).

As far as defensive is concerned, he got 5 seconds per game on PK (12th among forwards in Columbus) but 2:19 of PP.
I guess his coach does not want to exploit his defensive skills.
Among the worst +/- of his team (-7): played often with Umberger (+3) and Foligno (+6): both have more points than him.
11th in 5-5 per 60 minutes and other numbers (Corsi, Fenwick) are worst.
Among forwards of his team: 10th in hits, 9th in blocked shots.
He got the most faceoffs in his team (at a tender age of 21) but Dubinsky is way better (and has a higher % of his team FO).

Nothing to make him great two-way player until now.
He is a good forechecker, often first in the offensive zone.
Skates well and has a good shot.

Would he still be picked 3rd if the draft would be done again (before Skinner, Fowler, Faulk, Tarasenko)?
For now, his .31 ppg is ahead of Tinordi (.25 ppg) but he has way more TOI per game than Tinordi (with significant PP TOI).

He has 5 points more than Gallagher (.63 ppg) with 63 more games.
I know that ppg is not the only stats but Gallagher +10 is third in his team.

Plekanec has 29 points in 67 games on his first NHL season (22 years old).
Career wise, has similar points as Sharp, Hemsky, Koivu and Weiss among the players drafted in 2001.
Seems that many would trade Plekanec (398 points in 598 games) for Sharp (405 points in 595 games) but both have similar stats and Plek is much better in defense.
Back in 2001, Svitov was picked third overall (6'4", 245lbs).

We may has rose glass as you say, and maybe next season will prove CLB were right to pick him in third.

Would you trade Gallagher or Galchenyuk or even Eller for Johansen?
Eller is better than Johansen in: scoring, hitting, blocking shots, PK and defensive.

To me Dubinsky <= Plekanec (BD scored 44 points once and 54 points once but great FO and tougher) but Galchenyuk >>> Johansen.

On the other hand, Johansen SCap is much lower than Plekanec.
