It's not like he couldn't play in the AHL later, if needed at all.

Anyway, this injury wouldn't have happened in Sweden but that doesn't mean it was due to happen in AHL either.. obviously that's not what i mean/meant; just speaking in %..
and always had the feeling bringing Lindholm in N.A. straight away was forcing the situation and his natural path.
