Brodin wasn't a late riser, he was always seen as around #10 in the draft, and Lindholm is very smart offensively but not defensively. The opposite of Brodin.
Which hockey publications/outlets had Brodin around #10 for a long time, or in top 10 until the last few months? None of the guides that I have from 2011 - the only source I find is TSN. ISS, THN, Mckeen's, and Red Line do not have him at 10. I don't have time to match him up to Lindholm's current rankings but I think the rising closer to the draft is closer than you make it out to be.
