    Glad to see someone else on the Lindell train. I've been leading that charge by myself for a while now.

    Also, Ian Mitchell????

    Oh yeah, I just want to give them some time in the A. Both could be long term players for Chicago. De Hann gets traded at the deadline and Beaudin or Mitchell can come up.

    I've made a few Lindell AGM. I think he would be a great pickup. Kinda reminds me of a Murphy on the Left-side, could be a great partner for Boqvist.

    I agree with what these guys said. It gives us more cap flexibility and more offensive options. It’s a great deal.

    Yeah. Nill would never do that. That contract (with the NMC) tells us how they value Lindell as one of the key piece of the Stars' future.

    Esa is over paid but if you trade him and don’t replace him I think you miss that physical defense first guy in the playoffs. I support moving the contract but only if you can add another guy that does the job cheaper

    I like the Lindell move, giving them De Haan retained in return instead of Kura may be a more suitable resolve.
