When the Nashville Predators traded for Ryan Johansen in January 2016, they did so with the confidence that he could become the top center that Stanley Cup-challenging teams build around. 

 the Predators signed Johansen to an eight-year,Their faith justified, $64 million contract Friday. 

 big factor in all of our winning.", we're going to do really well," Predators general manager David Poile said. "And when we do really well,"I really feel in these next eight years,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-victor-hedman-jersey]Authentic Victor Hedman jersey[/url], Ryan Johansen is going to be a big

 $110 million contract that former captain Shea Weber received in July 2012,It is the longest and richest contract that the Predators have offered a player. That excludes the 14-year, with the team matching an offer sheet from the Philadelphia Flyers. 

Johansen's $8 million cap hit is tied for eighth among NHL centers next season, according to capfriendly.com. He doesn't have any trade protection in the contract. 

 including a career-high 47 assists. ,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-nikita-kucherov-jersey]adidas Nikita Kucherov jersey[/url], who was a restricted free agent,Johansen,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-auston-matthews-jersey]Authentic Auston Matthews jersey[/url], tied for the team lead last season with 61 points

 Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson merged to form what arguably was the NHL’s most fearsome forward line. They combined for 180 points and controlled 58.9 percent of total shot attempts when on the ice together,He,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-daniel-sedin-jersey]Authentic Daniel Sedin jersey[/url], according to datarink.com. That percentage was the league’s highest among 10 lines that played at least 600 minutes. 

All three players are under contract for at least the next five seasons. Arvidsson, $36 million contract. , signed a seven-year, $29.75 million contract July 22, 24, is in the second year of a six-year, and Forsberg, who turns 23 next month

" Johansen said. "As we were going through the process,"There's no better place to be right now, that's what it was all about from the start. The class that they've shown with myself and committing and trusting me and believing in me for these next eight years is just so humbling."

 who turns 25 on Monday,Johansen, said in April that he considered the Stanley Cup playoffs “as a great challenge and opportunity to make a big name for myself." 

He succeeded through two-plus rounds, pacing the Predators with 13 points in 14 games and morphing into the game-altering No. 1 center he is expected to be. 

 the result of a hit to his left thigh during Game 4 of the Western Conference finals against the Anaheim Ducks on May 18., however,Johansen’s postseason,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-victor-hedman-jersey]adidas Victor Hedman jersey[/url], ended before Nashville reached the Stanley Cup Final

The injury required emergency surgery to treat acute compartment syndrome. Johansen is expected to be a full participant at training camp when it begins in September. 

 to be a No. 1 center,"That's why I was brought here,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-nikita-kucherov-jersey]Authentic Nikita Kucherov jersey[/url]," Johansen said. "That's exactly what you want is you want three-time Stanley Cup champion (and Blackhawks captain) Jonathan Toews looking you in the eyes. And you've got to find a way to beat him.

 but it could've been me and (Penguins captain) Sidney Crosby going head-to-head or (Penguins center Evgeni) Malkin. ... I just embraced the challenge and the opportunity for me. I feel like moving forward now,"And then moving on to St. Louis and then Anaheim and then unfortunately with the injury,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-james-van-riemsdyk-jersey]Authentic James Van Riemsdyk jersey[/url], I gained a ton of confidence from the experiences of these playoffs and believing in my abilities that I can help our team in a big way."

Rest-of-season rankings: Four lines on the rise to stardom

 it's not the mathematical halfway point,We've passed the symbolic halfway point of the NHL season that is the All-Star break. No,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-james-van-riemsdyk-jersey]adidas James Van Riemsdyk jersey[/url], but it's the dividing line that is readily available for statistics and the point often used when fantasy teams buckle down and decide what they need to win.

In the spirit of renewal that the All-Star break represents, I am offering up four lines that have shown signs of being or are poised to be the post-All-Star break stars of the 2016-17 season.

Mikael Granlund,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-auston-matthews-jersey]adidas Auston Matthews jersey[/url], as they've started February with a combined 10 points in two games., only three points back of Sidney Crosby,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-daniel-sedin-jersey]adidas Daniel Sedin jersey[/url], Minnesota Wild: This trio has been out of control for the better part of two months now. Since Dec. 1, Granlund is third in NHL scoring, with 34 points in 29 games. In that same span, Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker, Zucker still is a possible free-agent addition in 57 percent of ESPN leagues. This line is primed to continue to crush competition, Koivu has 27 points in 28 games and Zucker has 26 points in 29 games. Combined, all thee forwards have an incredible plus-72 rating since Dec. 1. While Granlund and Koivu are available in about a quarter of ESPN leagues and you won't find them available in any competitive league
