Lindholm is a complete player so it's hard to pick his game apart. He protects the puck well, always keeps his head up and knows where he is going. He has speed to burn and loves to throw hits and battle. He draws comparissons to Forsberg/Giroux so you know you are geting a great player.

I guess he isn't rated top 3 for a couple reasons. He isn't 6'4 like some other highly rated guys first off, which doesn't really mean much. Second, he still needs to make sure his shot is consistent and at an NHL level. I personally think its there but he needs to get a bit better at being greedy and shooting the puck more. Finally, he still needs to show that he can be a go to guy and not just a great complimentary player.
