A bit off topic, but that's apparently who Hampus Lindholm considers a mentor. I can think of worse. On topic, that would be great for the Islanders. Jonsson was a rock, and one of the more under-appreciated defensemen in my opinion. Not to take anything away from the Islanders, but it's easy to wonder if he would have garnered more attention on a better team.
Agreed. Those numbers, with his shutdown capabilities, would make him a strong candidate. I think, sometimes, people forget how hard it can be to score 40+ points in the NHL as a defenseman, and among those defensemen, how many of them have legit shutdown abilities? That would be a rare talent.
