Better fit. I don't see that much of a difference. It's not like we're talking Malkin vs Barker

He is fairly safe in that even if he doesn't really pan out, you'll probably still get a decent 4th liner
Lindholm vs Monahan?

Think of a "lite" version of Backstrom vs J.Staal.

One has a ton of skill but didn't have that "sure thing" of making the NHL, while one was an NHL-ready player at 18, albeit with lesser offensive potential and "flash".

Lindholm doesn't have the 100pt potential of Backstrom, and Monahan isn't necessarily NHL-ready. But I think it's more than a safe bet that Monahan makes it as a 2C/3C, while Lindholm may or may not translate his SEL offensive success into NHL numbers. He may be forced down the lineup into a 2C role which he may not excel in.
