“There are a lot of similarities to Pekka Rinne. He’s a very big guy, still pretty slim. When Pekka came here, we didn’t know a lot about him, and with Lindback, we still don’t know a lot about him yet. But I’ve always said I’m a big believer in late bloomers. You look at guys we’ve had here that have been successful, and a lot of them have been late bloomers.”
