I think we were as surprised as you. Plenty of eyebrows were raised when Lindholm was picked, but I have to say, all he's done is impress. I think it's still too early to start talking about who he is better than, or what kind of player he can realistically be, but I do think that, so far, he's living up to his draft position, and he has a lot of us very excited about his future. I really think that, if he's released to go, he'll surprise a lot of people in the WJC.
