The Good: Lindback plays very similar to Pekka Rinne. He uses a hybrid style, he’s big (6’6) and he is very quick  for a big guy. He uses his size effectively to give shooters very little to work with. He stays on his feet, but maybe not that long. He spends a lot of time on his knees, but I wouldn’t call him a pure butterfly guy. He’s got mammoth size, so on pucks that someone else would have to shrug their shoulder for example to stop, it will just hit him. Nashville has a ton of confidence in their goalies, as Lindback is able to accumulate wins while Rinne farts on the bench. Lindback can bring back some solid players back in return, as Lindback has a ton of upside and should be a starting goaltender on many other teams, but behind Rinne this won’t happen.  Good stickhandiling. Very good mobility and reflexes.

The Bad: He needs to keep working on his consistency, especially when he goes long stretches without seeing any game action. Lindbäck was diagnosed with Adult-onset Still’s disease months before he entered the 2008 NHL Draft which made him get drafted so late despite his excellence. He won’t be able to shine unless he gets out od Nashville.
