Where's the kaboom?

I think Exit makes a good point. Lindholm came here because, as I understand it, he was told he would have an opportunity to earn his way onto the NHL team. Denying him that opportunity isn't in good faith. Give him the opportunity. If he earns it, great. If not? Well, he'll either go back to the AHL to finish out the season, or he'll want to head back to Sweden.
Vatanen is in a different situation. He had nothing left to gain by staying in the FEL, and earning experience in NA hockey is the next logical step. From there, he'll also be able to earn his way onto the team as well, but I think his performance in the AHL is a sign that he needs a bit more time.
