Just imagine what this kid could be like when he physically matures. Look at his face. He's got a baby face still. He's going to naturally mature at some point. Most Finns are late bloomers for whatever reason.
Call me crazy, but I think Lehkonen (if he makes it) at #41 is better value than Lindholm at #11.
I really want Lehkonen at 41. My top two choices are Euros (Ristolainen, Lehkonen) and I just can't see the Flyers going there with their NA bias.
