This is not a redboard, but I commented many times before the draft I had Finn in there with Ceci, Trouba, Koekkoek, Maatta, higher than Mathieson(though from all I her this kid is a sleeper) Didn't know enough about Lindholm.
The reason he may have slipped is his skills are not as obvious as the others, nothing stands out about Matt except he is efficient. The fact he was high on Seidel and Button's gives the Leafs cache that he was indeed a steal at #35. Too early though to say he is the steal of the draft, but at this point in time, he may be.
