This draft is so deep it's hard to miss on a prospect, and the difference between them is so small. I believe that Lindholm has a higher floor, but their maximum ceilings are very similar...I see Lindholms ceiling as a #1 C that could score at a PPG+ with a solid two-way game, and Wennberg as a 1/2 C that could score 70-80 points, and bring an average-above average two-way game. Both are definitely blue chippers though

Hard to compare, very different styles. I think Lindholm is better in a tight-checked game. Wennberg had troubles coming through offensively both last and this year's WJC when the games became wars. Lindholm's not always flashy but seems to find a way, bit of what Landeskog does. At this point he's done more against men than Wennberg.

Yeah I'd rank Lindholm higher than Wennberg at this point.

He's been playing with Skinner and E. Staal the past couple of games and they look good together.

If Lindholm could play every game against the Sharks, he probably would. Both of his best performances this season have been against them and he has 5pts in 2 games.

Also,

DAT PASS

Skinner and Lindholm have been quite the duo recently.

Lindholm's first multi-goal game in the NHL was Tuesday vs Pittsburgh in which he scored this sweet goal after pursuing the puck:



He's starting to show confidence and shoot more which is helping a lot.

What are your expectations from him next season? 16+ minutes? What line? Expected production? He has a great shot, he should definitely use it more, but his bread and butter is definitely his playmaking. I like him a lot as a prospect, stylistically he looks like Crosby to me but with less board play and more finesse.

^ In a full 82 game schedule I see Lindholm scoring 15-20G - 25-30A... Love this kid!
