Well yes, as is the case with most prospects there are still huge question marks.

But if he developes how he should/expect, he'll be a solid offensive contributor for the Preds. And there 1st this year(Possible top 5) could be even better.

I have a sneaky suspicion that the Preds are planning on drafting Lindholm if they end up in the 5-7 range at the draft. It would make sense for them to have gone out and gotten a fellow sewdish prospect for Lindholm to play with.

An all Swedish top line of Hornqvist - Lindholm - Forsberg would be pretty dangerous for the Preds in a couple years.

If they moved Weber for a Forward + Dman combo, they could be even more dangerous.
