    Nice little point streak, was high on the guy before the start of last year and was a little surprised he didnt get to play. Thats why im not in charge of a pro roster tho lol, either way hes gettin his shot now and makin it count.

    I love when the young guys can pick up some garbage time points to boost their confidence.

    The articles shows how, even coming from dominating the SHL, which is probably a half notch above the AHL, Lindblom had to adjust to smaller rinks, and a faster paced game. He had an adjustment period in the AHL, an adjustment period in the NHL and in the playoffs. It shows why expectations should be tempered initially with most prospects, it takes time to jump from juniors/college to the AHL (or sideways from the SHL or KHL), then to the NHL, then to a major role in the NHL and to the playoffs. How fast players adjust, how much they need to be sheltered through the process will vary from player to player.

    Lindblom showed he's a pretty fast learner, a little more than a year out of the SHL he's now a fixture on the 2nd line.

    Averaging just under 14 minuter per game in calendar 2018.

    7 points in the last 5 games, so is the real Lindblom arrived?

    Most saw that he had good chemistry last year with Patrick and Jake despite the points not showing it. No different to start the season. Hopefully they continue to gain more and more confidence and produce on the scoresheet. I keep that line together all year along with Jake....let JVR be a scoring threat from the 3rd line getting easier matchups.

    Lindblom and Patrick have chemistry, most lines are really pairs and a third player who is often interchangeable.

    Right now we have Giroux - Couts and Lindblom - Patrick, who will JVR bond to?
    Could go JVR - Frost next year, but I have my eyes on Ratcliffe - Frost in the long run.
    And of course Farabee will fit with everyone, most likely.
    Which illustrates a concern, far more LH depth at forward than RH.

    Dominant possession forwards will eventually start piling up the points.

    waiting for our moral and intellectual betters to point out its a "small sample size" that doesnt disprove the received wisdom that Linblom is a bust. After all, he's a 5 minute a game 4th liner

    yea so instead of telling him, you're doing a good job,and encourage him. they dump him down to the 4th line. #development.

    Lol looking at those numbers and that’s who suffers for ice time. Lol our coach is so smart. Sure does work hard. Well work hard doesn’t mean they are good at it.

    It's criminal what is happening to him right now, or rather Hakenning ®.

    Isn't he on pace for like 35 right now? So he's already performing over your expected peek in a system that doesn't promote a lot of offence?

    You feel he has no more room for growth?

    He is the latest example of developing despite coaching. Just like all the other prospects.

    This guy was top-5 in rookie scoring a few weeks ago, and how does The Hak reward him? By sticking his on the 4th line

    I really don't know who The Hak has misused worse: JVR or Lindblom

    Hägg and MacDonald are up there. How can MacD go from being scratched to playing 20 minutes a game. Makes zero ****ing sense.

    I know, but I don't know which is worse. Not using good players or overusing bad players.

    I was talking about goals, not points.
