Agree in general. Either of them I would be ecstatic. I have said this before:

Monahan : Toews
Lindholm: Backstrom

Both great players, which helps you more though?

TBH I haven't actually seen much of Lindholm, but those that have regularly on here say his game is more molded after Forsberg because he's more gritty than Backstrom. Whether or not he's capable of living up to those players accomplishments in another story, but he does look like he has all the tools and more.

And idk which would be better to select, they would be amazing selections for very different reasons. Honestly, I think I'd lean more towards Monahan just because I've seen him more but that could change.

I would take Toews over Backstrom I haven't seen a lot of Lindholm but at this point I would take Monahan over him.

I have only seen Lindholm twice but, he didn't seem that gritty to me. Not soft either, I thought he was really good at defending the puck in the sense that he would fight to keep it on his stick. He wasn't afraid to dig into the corners either and all that, I dunno if that really makes him gritty though.

I would also take Monahan. Lindholm seems like the kind of guy who has 100 point potential but Monahan seems like the kind of guy who leads your team to the cup, just a gut instinct I get from watching him play.

Every time I have watched Monahan I can't help but think he looks like Joe Sakic, maybe that's just me because I grew up idolizing Sakic since we are from the same home town.

He skates like Sakic. I don't think he has the passing ability that Sakic had.

It isn't the exact same but no one will ever be the exact same as Sakic he players the game the same way or at least tries to.

I think Monahan would be a great fit in Calgary. He's the kind of player that could take over from Iginla as the future leader of this team. Lindholm would be amazing to, I'm sure him and Sven would be dynamic, but look at how well Toews and Kane did together for the Hawks. I'm sure Sven and Monahan would be a great fit together as well.

I like this as it allows JG and Jankowski/Backlund to be our second line we could potentially have a real balanced attack.

I think the Flames should trade their ping pong balls for Matt Dumba and Cal Buttercup.

Uhhh, I dunno why, but it wasn't in the vote.
