Joe Sakic - 5'11", 185lbs
Peter Forsberg - 6'0", 205lbs
RNH - 6'1", 175lbs
Lindholm - 5'11", 183lbs
All of the above was taken off hockeydb so it's likely Sakic/Forsberg's info is them as grown men well into their pro careers. Nuge and Lindholm as 20 and 18 year olds respectively (the Oilers' site has Nuge at 185 now).
Lindholm has been compared to Forsberg in terms of style on more than one occasion. The fact that he's not quite 6' now (and is likely still grownig) is no reason not to take him if he's the superior player. I could see him playing at or around Forsberg's listed height/weight during his career. Not only that, but he's outproducing Backstrom at the same age in the same league on the same team. Of course, Backstrom was his team's leading scorer and Lindholm is 3rd, but that's some pretty lofty company to be in all the same.
If you are offended by this post, it's probably because you're ugly.
