That is what I have been saying, I dont understand why people think this is some shrewd move by Johnsson and his agent. Barring injury he isnt getting top 6 ice time or top pp minutes and it is conceivable that he could be on the 4th line. If I were him I would have signed a 2 year deal at a higher AAV in the hopes that in 2020 I could build a strong case for a lucrative deal when the Leafs have to play him higher up the lineup due to cap constraints.
