Just because Fasth was lighting up the league doesn't mean Lindberg has to do the same. Different situations.

I am still happy with the trade.
You like to see progress from your younger players. There has been no progress in his offensive game, from all accounts, and he was receiving less ice time than the previous season. And now, he's on loan to a second division club. His season is disappointing in that his game didn't show much of any progress. That doesn't necessarily mean he still won't become a good bottom six player in the NHL, but it isn't the encouraging development I was hoping for.

EDIT: It's not that dissimilar from Werek, who also showed little offensive development.


It's just pain.
