Aren't we due for Lander to be our Nyqvist or Tatar next year?
Lander, alas, does not have enough speed and skill to be a scoring threat in the NHL. But there is no reason he can't turn into a poor man's Pahlsson a few years down the road. That's nothing to scoff at. IMHO, they should make it clear to him that an NHL spot next year is his to lose. Play him as 4th line centre or 3rd line winger with a lot of PK time. Develop his defensive game in the NHL.
