Could we see Andreas Johnsson in the playoffs?

In many ways the time to recover from injuries is a double edged sword for the Leafs. On the one hand they will most certainly have fully recovered versions of Jake Muzzin and Morgan Rielly back in the lineup, and very likely a 100% ready to go Ilya Mikheyev as well. On the other hand, look at who all will be coming back from the Blue Jackets…

Dang! A fully healthy Nathan Gerbe. We’re doomed. Okay, Atkinson, Bkorkstrand, and Jones are probably the key takeaways from this and to a lesser extent Murray and Anderson, but the Jackets have had just as rough a ride as the Leafs and unquestionably results in an upgrading lineup over this:
