I've been impressed by Krüger's transformation to defensive specialist, since I very much doubted that a small Swedish finesse center would stick as a bottom-6:er in the NHL.
But I agree that a Krüger-like impact is a realistic target. But Lindberg is more proven than Krüger was when he came over, so I'd say his ceiling as an NHL player is higher.
Thanks for the info, I'll take your word for it as you constantly watch these players play. To be compared to ROR is certainly encouraging.
Can't wait to see him in Gold Medal game.
