Absolutely, that's the time to take chances. But taking chances does not mean an indiscriminate abandonment of caution. If you're going to be leading the rush across the line, moving laterally, you can't have your head down, dicking with the puck in your feet. Until Lindholm gets that habit, I don't want him doing that. His development is way more valuable to me than a Norfolk win.

I'm not saying he definitely has a poor habit, because I frankly haven't seen enough of him. This is speculation based on the one incident I saw and the fact that he already has another from being smacked shoulder-to-head (in an incident I did not see and have no information on). As Snark mentioned, he does seem like a smart player, but smart players can have weaknesses too, especially young ones.
