One thing Lindholm has going for him is that he is both a winger and a center. That skill set not many players can play. Look how invisible DannyB looks on the wing. Say we decide to trade the Couturier or Schenn (just a scenario), Lindholm has the ability to slot into the center spot if needed. If not, he plays on the wing. The only small knock on Lindholm was before this season started, scouts questioned his offensive ability. Seems like he quieted alot though with his play this season.
