With Stamkos out so much, he's in their Top-3 point leaders for Forwards (with Palat and Fillpulla) and has 23 goals. It's going to be difficult to drop him permanently on the 3rd line. Plus because of his size, like DD he doesn't fit well in a bottom-6 role.
Yea I don't see them dropping Johnson to the 3rd line. In any case, having two centers on the same line is usually a luxury rather than an issue.
