Mats was a great guy, and had pretty good talent but just never could reach it. 9 years ago one of my buddies and I were waiting around the Oilers room for autographs after one of the games and we ended up catching up to him in the parking lot. Extremely nice guy, solid defensivly and on the draws, just never could get much of an offensive game going like was expected.
Mats Lindgren was a beauty. As mentioned, decent 2-way player with a little bit of offensive punch (11 and 13 goal seasons in Edmonton). I thought he was a good fit here - din't really work out anywhere else before heading home.
