Much like Johansen, Viktor Arvidsson is looking to have a bounce-back year and just avoid any long-term injuries. Some people think teams have figured out how to manage his quickness and speed.

Arvidsson was all over the the net the past two scrimmages, and tallied a few goals as a reward for his aggressiveness.
In a 56-game schedule, I’m hoping to see Arvidsson reach 20-plus goals and just start having fun again. Last season was a grind for him, and it hurt the Predators in big ways having to reshuffle so often.
Arvidsson has a lot of strong hockey left in his career. The scrimmages showed that he’s still one of the better offensive players on the team and belong on the top line to see if that chemistry is still there with Forsberg and Johansen.
It’s nice to see Arvidsson back on the top line and Hynes going with what has worked well in the past. There’s no need to overthink this too much and force things that aren’t there. Keep the JoFA line together.
