I believe Lindberg has that potential. But I seem to be in the minority.
I don't know who touted Werek as a top six player. I always saw him as a more physical Drury, (which makes these comparisons of Lindberg to Drury all the more amusing to me) so that pretty much means I saw him as an excellent third liner with the ability to score 20-25 goals and add 20-30 assists.
If he had a better skating, I would have little doubt that he's a 60 point player. But I was fine with him as he was because I like having players like that, and this team would have needed that on 2-3 years. I also think this team would have needed a personality like this in 2-3 years.
