No Pressure On Lindback

from Pierre LeBrun on ESPN,

When I began to talk about how I felt we might all look back one day and feel that Tampa Bay’s acquisition of Anders Lindback might end up being the best move of the entire 2012 NHL offseason, the Tampa Bay Lightning GM jumped in and, although I couldn’t see him across the phone line, I pictured Yzerman waving his hand down at me as if to calm things.

Whoa, Nelly, let’s not put the cart before the horse.

"In fairness to Anders, he’s shown great potential when you watch him play in the games that he’s played in," Yzerman said this week. "Let’s just see how it plays out and not put any undue expectation on him."

In other words, quiet down with the franchise goalie talk, the kid doesn’t need that kind of pressure right now.

more plus the Lidstrom era ends and the same with Parise in New Jersey...

I think Lindback is going to be a good enough goalie.  TB was in desperate need of some kind of help in goal, so he should help them quite a bit.

I picked him up in fantasy last night with my second to last pick with the intention of using him as a back-up.  I didn’t want to grab him any earlier than I had to, but I was absolutely shocked no one else picked him.
