I'm not saying we should have both Vatanen and Lindholm in the lineup come playoff time, but I think something like this is very reasonable:

Fowler-Lydman
Souray-Beauchamin
Sbisa-Lindholm

That's a mobile defense, and everyone in that lineup at worst can be average in their own zone.
we dont know how lindholm will be yet. for all we know he could be a terrible disappoint in his first year in the NHL.. lets give him a couple games before we all deem him to be fit for the NHL

this applies to myself as well lol

Indeed. I thought Lindholm was super impressive in the AHL, but that doesn't automatically mean he'd be able to step seamlessly into the NHL. He's a seriously high end prospect, in my opinion, but he needs to earn a spot the same as anyone else. I'd love to see him get a look, but I think it would be a mistake to pencil him in before we see how he does.

His option to be released to play in WJC doesn't stop his payment. I guess the only possibility there would be no payment would be due to him not returning and the Ducks' organization putting in a formal complaint. But with concussion, the medical staff with Anaheim would probably be of higher quality than down at Norfolk. Not only that, but there are more specialists in the OC and LA for concussions. So it was a great turn of fortunes that Lindholm is part of the parent team. I mean, he could have stayed with the Ducks anyhow by putting him on IR a la Vatanen.
I don't think anybody is questioning that he's getting paid something. And while this year may count against his ELC, there is still a vast difference between his AHL pay and his NHL pay. The issue seems to be which team he belongs to. Capgeek says he's a non roster player in ANA. He is not on the 23 man roster and therefore doesn't count against the cap. Yet it is reported that he isn't on the AHL roster either. So the question still exists, how can he be on nobody's roster? Since we know he is not counting against the NHL roster the question becomes, could he be violating any league rules by continuing to stay, practice, and travel with the big club although not counting against the roster or cap limits.

He could not be on IR in ANA without counting against the 23 man roster. Perhaps when Rakell gets sent back HL could be added to IR if he is close to actually playing in ANA.

I suspect that since he was hurt while assigned to the Swedish Junior Team that he is not counted against either the NHL or AHL roster until he is medically cleared to return to play.

It could be that, but I don't know for myself. All I know is he wasn't re-instated by Norfolk nor the parent team. But it's all about the medical. The NHL has nothing to do with this unless Lindholm and his agent put in a complaint against the Ducks' org. Considering he's being paid and he's getting the best medical attention with the parent club, then I doubt the NHLPA would step in.

So you're going to sacrifice quality depth in an odd, shortened season with two rookies, one being undersized (lends to overpowering him due to lack of experience) and the other having two concussion symptoms in half a season. Oh by the way, we don't know how long Fowler will be out still. If it is a concussion, then look at Lindholm' situation.

Has anyone suggested that Lindholm get a permanent spot? I think we're discussing an experiment. Lindholm would still be at risk to get concussed in the AHL. Usually after two, speedy players tens to try to be a little more elusive. I say experiment with him there. If he's solid give him a longer look and go from there.

I feel like the Ducks have really good scouts

You guys seem to find some serious gems, all drafted by you guys

Granted Fowler kind of fell into your lap, but other guys like Getzlaf, Perry, Ryan (also an easy pick); but still a lot of really good prospects with not so high draft picks (Schultz, Etem, Roy, Gibson, Vatanen, Palmieri)

Pretty incredible

I dont know, I didnt really follow hockey well enough to follow other teams draft picks back then haha, I just meant you had a 2nd overall pick so you cant really mess up too bad lol

That wasnt even my point, poinst was just that you guys seem to find some really good players with not so high picks. Bruins are the opposite, Im jealous

Yep the consensus pick at the time was Jack Johnson. Ryan was predicted to go around 5th overall.

Don't forget High School player Jake Gardiner with the 17th pick as well. Coaching staff seems to love Rakell as well he just doesn't have that aura around him like the others. Same can be said for William Karlsson. Early results from this draft seem to be good as well (Lindholm - a suspected reach by many / Kerdiles) but lets reserve judgement for a few years.

That last half decade + has seem to be very fruitful for Ducks scouts. Keeping fingers crossed that it continues for a very long time.

Per Stephens:

@icemancometh: Boudreau today on Lindholm: "He's not ready yet but he's getting better." No timetable. He's had two concussions. Team is being cautious.

From what I have read, it seems like William Karlsson is doing pretty well. For those who have seen him play recently, what do you think the time table is for North American play?

Kerdiles. When I watch him play, he just strikes me as a very intelligent player.

As pointed out before, Ryan wasn't such a sought after prospect at the time at all. He was projected Top 10, but certainly not Top 3. Burke tried heavily to trade down because he was so sure he could pick him up a little later. Didn't work out and so we drafted him #2.

It was a close call between Jack Johnson and Benoit Pouliot (not kidding).

Beanpot Championship game tomorrow: NU vs. BC. It will be broadcasted on NESN @ 7:30pm EST if you have satellite or want to find a feed to watch the Kevin Roy show. Josh Manson is in the system too...big body and isn't afraid to use it:
