Adam Rotter: I think that Lindberg's season has been about what was expected for a rookie bottom-six forward. His stats are a little inflated due to that big run he had at the start of the year but Lindberg has been mostly solid. He will have his ups and downs through the year but he is a regular forward for the Rangers and one that is locked up through next season at $650,000.
