No way they mess with that first line.

 

That first line was one of the best in all of hockey last year.

 

Tlusty scored 23 goals last year because of Staal and Semin.

 

 

It's being talked about. Putting Lindholm on the second line with Skinner and Tlusty and moving Staal up to the first. 

 

I'd rather that line not have Skinner on it, which is why I added the trade in.

No it's not either, they just drafted the kid lol.

 

There is no way they would bump Tlusty down after the year he had last year.

 

And I'v heard you want to trade Skinner about 20 times now, bottom line is he doesn't get traded unless it's for Marc Staal... so you can relax...

Canes have the option of buying him out, but haven't decided if they will or not. The are thinking about sending him back to Sweden for his final year and not buying him out. 

 

Edit: They may not have the choice in the matter. So ignore what the Hurricane beat reporters are saying because he just said this to reporters and they've not mentioned it at all. 

 

 

 

@dabrams2021 I was told by Lindholm himself, along with a room of reporters that he intends to honor his contract and play in Sweden.

Rutherford: "We've kind of had him targeted for a long time." Mentioned Kron being key in scouting Lindholm.

Rutherford noted Lindholm grew up competing against his brother, Oliver, who is 2 years older and also a hockey player.

Notes On Lindholm

 

NHL Director of European Scouting Goran Stubb:

"He's a complete package. He could very well be the next Peter Forsberg. He's an excellent skater and great competitor who gives it 110 percent on every shift. He can skate, score and pass, and is physically strong even though he is a finesse-type of player."

 

- He played 48 games for Brynas in 2012-13, finishing third on the team in points (11-19--30) despite being the youngest player on the roster. He also was one of only two players on Brynas to finish the season with a plus rating (+1).

- Lindholm was a finalist for the Rookie of the Year after leading all junior-aged players in the Swedish Elite League in scoring during the 2012 13 season.
 

- A two-time silver medalist, he competed for Team Sweden at the 2013 World Junior Championship, recording four points (2-2--4) in six games, and at the 2012 World Under-18 Championship, tallying three points (2-1--3) in four games.

- Lindholm's father, Mikael, was selected 237th overall by Los Angeles in 1987 and played 18 games for the Kings during the 1989-90 season. His cousin, Detroit Red Wings prospect Calle Jarnkrok, was drafted 51st overall in 2010.

- He started playing hockey in Germany at the age of three while his father was playing for the Hannover Scorpions.

Since Lindholm likes Pittsburgh so much, let's trade him to get back Brandon Sutter.

I'm not sure Sutter would want to be back. Plus I think it would take more then just Lindholm to get him back.

I miss Sutter, he is one of the best (least talked about) two-way players in the game.

I will say this, the Canes could potentially have an all-Swedes line in the next few years.

 

Victor Rask - Elias Lindholm - Erik Karlsson

I'm getting confused here. Cane beat reporters keep saying that there's a chance he'll play in Raleigh next season ,but Lindholm said that he is honoring his contract and going back to Sweden but will be at the camp.
