Read: Oscar Lindberg on last season and his goal for this season

Oscar LindbergIn looking back at last season, Oscar Lindberg said that his year in Hartford was tough but rewarding. (Norran)

He said that he was good in Traverse City and even in Training Camp but was the last cut and then he didn’t play his best hockey after being sent down. (Norran)

Lindberg said that it was useful for him to play in the AHL but he was disappointed that he didn’t get a chance to play with the Rangers. He said that his goal for this season is to play with the Rangers but it is up to him to make it happen. (Norran)

He said that he wants to/is working at getting faster after discovering how important speed is on the smaller ice surface. (Norran)

He had 18 goals and 26 assists in 75 games for the Wolf Pack this season.

I'll be honest, I had really high expectations for Lindberg when he came back from SEL. I truly hope this kid figures it out and can make the roster cuz he's got a ton of upside to his game

How about being the best goal scorer you can be? Why you never hear a Rangers prospect say I want to be the best scorer I can be. I want have the best hands ever? It's always speed or two way game. Dude, you're two-way game is going to be there because you play for an organization who prides themselves on defense or else you won't play. Every other team has like a sixth rounder or so who becomes all stars because they I'm improved there skills. Who has a swagger. That's why I like JT. If he can just take a bit more ownership of his defense, he can be different. A guy who doesn't follow this vanilla mold. I hope we start to see a difference in prospect talent starting from the Duclair, Buch, and Tambellini class.

@charlie duck sauce So let me get this straight: you're upset that Lindberg said exactly what his employer wants to hear? You said it yourself: "...play for an organization who prides themselves on defense or else you won't play." He doesn't care what fans think. He cares what his employer thinks. Anyway who says he doesn't want to improve his goal-scoring? He didn't.


"Every other team has like a sixth rounder or so who becomes all stars because they I'm improved there skills."

You must have forgotten about this guy name Henrik Lundqvist. He's a late rounder who is pretty OK I guess.


"That's why I like JT. If he can just take a bit more ownership of his defense..."

Wait, WHAT? So you're saying that if JT Miller had a better TWO WAY GAME then he would be "different"? Make up your mind, man! Your post is one giant contradiction.


Wow...

@charlie duck sauce Looks like only one in system that may be a scorer is Duclair.  Keep your fingers crossed he and some others may come through.

@Scott Patrick @charlie duck sauce Buchnevich has as much or more offensive ability as Duclair even does. There's nothing wrong with trying to improve your overall speed, plus Lindberg has alot of natural skill already.

That's exactly what I did after reading your post.

@Jordan Donahue Not really faulting Oscar for improving his speed. Honestly, I can't to see him and Fast in action.It's just not a young player in the rangers system for quite sometime not wanting to break the mold and be bold. it's the typical good kid, who is vanilla who has a mature two-way and that's it. It's like it's every single prospect.

@charlie duck sauce @Jordan Donahue I agree they've had too many of those but I think Buchnevich, Duclair and even Lindberg have more skill than we've seen in the recent prospects so that's a start. I'm glad they starting taking more chances on those guys.
