    The instincts are there...you see it. That apple he put out to Patrick for the game winner against Ducks was sweet. Kid never stopped battling in that game. Just let these kids play Hak..... and learn while developing.

    Hak loves Lindblom, put him on the 2nd line immediately, and even put him ahead of JVR when it was obvious he had better chemistry with Patrick.

    You can be smart, hard working with good fundamentals and still score, believe it or not.
    Lindblom and Provorov are good examples of that phenomenon.
    And TK in his 3rd season is becoming that kind of player, as is Patrick.
    Even Ghost has become a fundamentally sound defender.

    Maybe that's the key to getting more PT with Hakstol?

    What's everyone's hopeful and realistic projection for Lindblom?

    For me - my upper projection is a guy who can play on the top two lines and maybe be a 55-60 point guy (would have to play on PP1 for that, tho).

    My more realistic projection would be a Raffl type player with a bit more offensive punch to his game (maybe upper 30ies in terms of raw points), a very good middle 6 winger, 2pp and pk abilities.

    Anything above ~55 is fairly unlikely. I'd be very happy with him being a 20g 40/50 point player.

    I am hoping for like vintage Matt Read type production. I don't think he will be a consistent 20-25 goal scorer or anything (unless they really put him in position to be), but I think he sort of sticks around the 2nd/3rd line minute role with probably PP2 time. Has a couple great years but typically ends up around 40 points

    alot depends on how they use him and who he plays with. i can see a 50 point player with the right usage.

    I see him as a 20-25 guy.

    No projection, but I definitely agree his hands/finish will allow him to contribute a good deal more than Raffl. Still love Raffl, though.

    Was really loving him the other week when he almost scratched him and was playing him 8 minutes, less than Weise.

    @Rebels57 I think that's a fair assessment for this year. He plays hard along the boards and reminds me a bit of Raffl in his sheer style of play but with a little more shiftiness and hockey sense. I think he'll be a middle of the road 40 point guy with maybe some good 50-60 pt years depending on who he plays with and also if he finds his scoring touch.

    I'm looking at him as a Knublesque guy. Not the fastest player but skilled enough to play in the top 6, a monster along the boards, a deflection dynamo, and does most of his damage right around the crease. See him settling in somewhere between 40 and 60 points depending on his role.

    This is partly why I can't even guess. What kind of time does he get? I think ultimately he'll have some pretty good line mates, tools to set them up, and he's damn good around the net.

    Along with teammate Sanheim putting up 50+ point seasons, because, you know, we'll have traded the 2 of them to Seattle so that they would agree not to take Hagg.

    That's Hakstol trying to put trust in a rookie.

    That's Hakstok trying to do anything more complex than churning butter. WHIFF!

    Starting to really show his playmaking ability in the NHL too now.

    When I first saw him in the SHL in his first I actually thought he was getting lucky with his passing at times, first ~10 games vs pros he had some insane no-look passes, one from down on the ice etc.

    And then started to realise that it was happening often and he was a deceptively good passer.

    2nd line winger on a cup winning team. Audible sigh while adding hopefully in philly though.

    You do realize that Lindblom has only played 41 NHL games so far in his career.
    So this is basically half-way through his rookie season.
    And he's a fixture on the 2nd line.
