How does a kid who by all accounts was drafted, 10-12 spots earlier than projected and has missed a large chunk of the season with injuries warrant being a cog in the "hype machine" that is these stupid lists?

He doesn't. He wasn't a sexy pick at 6, and he hasn't been overly amazing at the AHL level. There is no reason that whomever even does these lists would even have Lindholm on his radar.

I don't want this to seem like I hate Lindholm or the pick because I don't. These current Duck scouts have certainly earned my trust. People just need to understand these lists are more about hype then they are about actual skill.

You're better off ignoring them entirely.
What are all accounts? there were other teams rumored to have Lindholm in their top 10 which is why Anaheim didn't trade down
