And just how many of those every other regular D-men have been just drafted? You just can't compare junior aged players to veteran professionals especially considering defensemen. I must say again: Mikko Koivu was a 0+1 player in SM-liiga, but in junior A league in the same season he had two points per game pace.

Just getting a chance in the SM-liiga is rare for a defenseman of that age, and Lindell held his own when he got to show his game. Again, d-men usually take longer to hit full potential.
