I'm not doubting you I'm just curious because that just seems like pretty high praise
Purely style of play, no need to compare h2h. Lindholm is average sized but he's pretty physical for a 6'0" guy with soft hands, elite vision and dynamic skating. Five of his six goals have been gritty, drive-the-net-goals. And many of his assists are from taking the fastest way to the net. But they're on top of a finesse game. I would say that those traits are more similar to how Forsberg played than Backstrom plays.
