I think he has 2nd/3rd line tweener upside. Maybe a center version of Korpikoski?
I've liked Lindberg over our other "bottom-6 potential" centers since we've acquired him. Everyone felt really excited about Fogarty and to a lesser degree Yogan, but I think Lindberg has a higher floor and a higher ceiling.
That said, I don't think he has second line potential. I think he's our 3-4 line center of the future. However, if Lindberg (or Yogan/Fogarty) replaces Halpern, the team would get significantly younger and probably better.
