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.

Yea, he is a great player. Way under rated by most fans.

Victor Rask is the big ? among that group, he's got tons of potential but I'm not sure if he ever gets there.

His best chance is this year... if he doesn't make it this year... he'll just be another Dalpe.

Best quote I've seen

 

In talking about Lindholm, MacDonald noted he has been compared to such players as Daniel Alfredsson of the Ottawa Senators and Nicklas Backstrom of the Washington Capitals. He also has been referred to as the "next Peter Forsberg."

That's what I was getting confused about, he's going to be at the prospect camp but plans on going back to Sweden and honoring his contract.....
