Jones vs. Drouin/MacKinnon is an awesome matchup.

Was at the London Knights game 7 last night, and wowwww what a game. Bo Horvat (who I think is going to be an absolute stud in the NHL level) scores with a second left. Hughes has been looking really good throughout these playoffs. I really think he will play a few years in the AHL system and be a good end pairing guy at the NHL level. He is so composed on the defensive end, makes smart plays, good skater and very good positionally.

Domi has not really impressed me much these London playoffs. His hands are phenomenal but he has been an absolute black hole in the Barrie series. I just don't know if it's going to translate to the NHL level considering his size. He gets tossed around alot, and tries to dangle between 2 or 3 guys way to much. Horvat and Zhadorov are looking like big time players though, I would somehow love to get my hands on either of them.

That sounds exactly like a Rangers d-man. Hoping for the best. Hard to teach that calmness with the puck and solid positional play.

An assist by OL tonight against Norway.

Will he go to NY after the WCHs are over?

Sweden play Canada on Thursday, and we are really really weak this season...

And what a sweet assist it was, and prior to that pass, a whole lot of grinding by OL leading up to whole goal situation. And b.t.w. it wasnt against Norway, tonights game was against Denmark

Haha, I don't know how many encounters I've had lately that indicate that I am loosing any entitlement to call my self a die hard hockey fan.

"Ola: Lets win tonight! Hfboards: Ola, the game is tomorrow."

It was a great assist indeed! OL has in general distributed the puck really well. Not in a true play maker fashion, but he makes crisp passes, finds open people, and just moves the puck well.

Stepan, Brassard, OL, Boyle. Can't wait for a third line of Lindberg and Fasth.

Good for Lindberg contributing and in limited playing time with the Sedins, Erikson, etc. probably playing the big minutes for Sweden.

100% bring him over even if it's just to skate with the taxi squad. He can start getting familiar with his teammates, facilities, working with the strength and conditioning staff, etc.

Also, with Miller sent home to let his wrist heal, other than Newburry, the Rangers really don't have much center depth. You never know when they might need him.

Yeah, I actually thought about OL vs Newbury too. I mean, against OL you have not knowing the team/system/small ice etc., in favor you have him just being a much more well rounded player. It of course also could depend on who they would be replacing, it might differ if the players hurt are Stepan and Brassard vs Boyle and Powe.

But in the end, I think its doubtful if you put in OL instead of Newbury. I was going there first, but kind of changed my mind. But just like you say, if we loose two centers we could all of a sudden still need him. There could be 21 games left of our season.

Folks I bet this was asked already but I don't remember. What's Lindberg's ceiling? I understand he's not the most skilled guy. However, is 50-55 point 3rd liner who is good defensively a possibility? If so we'll be incredibly deep down the middle for years to come. Stepan, Brassard, and Lindberg.

If you're scoring 50-55 points in the league, you're on most teams' first line. In no way, shape or form is a 50-point guy a third line player. Unless you're the Oilers circa 1984 and you're scoring over five goals per game.

Anyway, it's too early to say. His offense developed this year more so than a lot of people, including many in the organization, anticipated. I highly doubt he's a 50+ point player, but let's see what the kid can do.

Well on the Rangers barring a regression from Stepan and Brassard he'd probably be a 3rd liner, that's what I meant. A 50-55 point first line center isn't very good, btw.

I think its really hard to tell, nine of ten times you can basically create a check list for a prospect. And that check list can be pretty strict. Looking at a kid like Derick Brassard, a check list like that works well. He skates, stick-handles and shoot the puck well, he sees the ice well and so forth and so forth. Since he isn't out of this world on the check-list, he isn't either Sid II. Its not much harder than that.

But somewhere along the line, a hockey game is played on the ice and in the end all that matters is getting the job done. Oscar Lindberg is not a great NHL prospect going by the check-list, to be honest, but is doing a really fine job by the second criteria.

We shouldn't underrate his raw abilities. He isn't a flashy skater/stickhandler but have since a really early age played at a high level, with the result that he hasn't adopted much flash that anyway only becomes a bad habit at a higher level.

I think it would be great if he could turn into somekind of Sergei Nemchinov of 2013, and that is putting the bar pretty high. At the same time, you never know...

It is if you are very good defensively and in the faceoff circle. Pair him with some offensive wingers and he would be great.

I think 40 points is probably his ceiling.

A 50-55 point player is not a third liner, that's a very good second liner if he is merely an offensive guy. A two way player who scores 50-55 points is a borderline first liner.

I was rooting for Sweden because of Lindberg and us having a whole bunch of Swedes, but after the vicious, unprovoked attempt to injure Eric Staal, I'm rooting for Canada. Edler is an a--hole.

Lindberg being third overall in facoffs with 62.12℅ is most impressive.
