Ryan Johansen's first season in the NHL was nothing to write home about, as he managed just nine goals and 21 points in 67 games spent mostly on checking lines. He didn't seem able to earn the trust of then-interim coach Todd Richards, but, with another year to work on his skating, and, more importantly, with the top two lines now wide open in the wake of the Rick Nash trade, Johansen will get a chance to win a better offensive placement. Foot speed aside, he has enviable size and top grade tools, and, on a roster suddenly bereft of stars, he's got plenty of room to spread his wings and reach his potential. Definitely remember his name in keeper leagues as your round out your roster. (Updated 8/14/12)
