Henrik Sedin: 34 in 49
Nicklas Backstrom: 26 in 46
Peter Forsberg: 17 in 23
Victor Hedman: 21 in 43
Markus Naslund: 19 in 32

Who else has been around 0.5 PPG or higher in their draft year? 10 points in 10 games for Lindholm seems like a very, VERY impressive start.
The Sedins are very early birth so they were actually 18 during the entire season

It's hard not to get up in arms like that. He was very highly regarded (If I remember correct some agency had him at 4?) before the season started and he has absolutely risen his stock since.
