The more I watch Johnsson the more excited I get about his potential, he was an absolute force on the Grundstrom goal and then his wraparound was fantastic.  His passes to Aaltonen in the first games of this series were sublime.

As mentioned before 4th line on Leafs next season Johnsson-Aaltonen-Grundstrom

I think Johnsson has more than 4th line potential due to how smart and easy to coach he is. I like Grundstrom as a complementary scoring option as well.

Potato GM:
Grundstrom - Matthews - Kapanen/Brown
Marleau - Kadri - Marner
Johnsson - Nylander - Hyman
Aaltonen - Lindholm - Brown/Kapanen

With JvR gone Johnsson is already looking like our 3rd line LW.  Heck, if I was drawing up a lineup, I think he'd be on the 1st line:

Johnsson - Matthews - Marner
Marleau - Kadri - Kapanen
Hyman - Nylander - Brown
Moore - Lindholm - Aaltonen

I would put Grundstrom in there somewhere. I do think we need an upgrade somewhere on the forwards though.... Come on Dubas with some out of the box thinking!

I heard Don Dubas is cloning the skeletal remains of Rocket Richard, should be flying down the ice in about 18 years.  How outside the box can you get?

Given Grundstrom's age etc, I'm not sure I'd want him getting limited 4th line minutes over getting big minutes on the Marlies- at least to start the year.  If he's dominating the AHL mid-season, ala Johnsson was earlier this year, then bring him up.
