The Good: Johnson has excellent size for the goaltending position at the National Hockey League level. He is efficient in his body movements and makes good use of his large frame in covering the net. He has a good glove, and generally stays square to the shooter. His combination of size, speed and technique will give him another opportunity to claim the backup role behind Henrik Lundqvist. He is capable of dominating at lower levels, and can be a solid NHL backup, which adds to his trade value. He has proven he can play during limited stretches in the NHL on a recall basis.
The Bad: Johnson has a habit of giving up some bad rebounds. He needs to fill out his 6-3 frame in order to have the stamina required to play regularly against the best shooters in the world at the NHL level. He also needs more consistency in his game. Johnson doesn’t have the natural talent to be an NHL starter, and it wasn’t going to happen with the Rangers organization.
