I'm so sick of seeing that. But on that subject who is a fair comparison for Lindholm. Lot's of people are saying OEL, but I'm not sure that's so much accurate as it is just a reminder of being a similar situation. To me I get more of an Adam Larsson vibe out of Lindholm. That's not me trying to relate him to someone of similar nationality, but I really feel the two play a very similar game.

Madden and the scouts really did their homework on this one, and we actually might have gotten the best defenseman in the draft.
I've been incredibly impressed with him. Having two stellar tandems in our system (Fowler/Sbisa, Lindholm/Vatanen) is a great thing to look forward to in the future. Now if we could just focus our drafting tendencies to high end offense, that would just be swell. The Getzlaf/Perry/Selanne/Koivu situation has me nervous and I'm not certain Holland, Palmieri, Etem, +Others have enough in them to construct a dominant top 6.
