FWIW, Forsberg was listed at 6', 205 lbs. Lindholm will probably be the same size in his prime, so I don't see where you're going from with the "way too girlish frame to play forsberg like game in small rink" comment.
Yeah, but hockey players often have tree trunk legs that compensate for their lack of upper body. So it doesn't necessarily speak for his frame. I'd believe the report that he has rather narrow shoulders. This might make it hard for him to bulk up his upper body, but then again, I don't think that will limit his effectiveness too much.
