i do think that the north american skaters are overall better leaders and that their grit involves more than using his stick to fight people.

i do in general dont like swedish players, because their lack of physicality, but premiere scorers are worth a lot.

i need to look more into monahan though. thx for the info
Sorry, i meant Lindholm has greater offensive capabilities compared to Monahan.

Lindholm won't hit Backstrom's peak (which has been and gone, he won't hit 100 again). Different type of player.

National styles are overstated. We don't know who will be be NHL leaders down the line. Barkov has tremendous work ethic. Haven't heard any concerns over Lindholm and his dedication. People get confused between obvious leadership abilities and what really matters ; hard work and dedication. I don't particularly care the type of style a player has, but if he's talented and works really hard off the ice, usually he'll be successful.

Still, i can understand reasons for taking Monahan over Lindholm.
