    I totally jump on a Pajamas trade straight up.
    Lindberg is out of the league but sure.

    And Andersson is likely to follow.

    Seems like he is pouting. Body language and his lack of engaged play, while in a situation where he should be putting in extra effort to make his coach give him more looks with better players, kinda lends to the thought that he's mad he's not handed a spot.

    I just always think of him as a spoiled brat, since his medal throwing incident.

    For a kid who should be playing with some fire and spark, he looks disinterested in his play. Quinn not giving him more chances suggests to me that he probably isn't giving much effort in practice either.

    I think the opposite,I see pretty good effort and more involved than last season, I just don't see much offensively.
    I think if he wasn't giving effort in practice he wouldn't be here, think that's reading into it way too much.
    I just don't know how much we can expect from someone not very offensively talented,who is playing with 2 slugs as well.

    The best we saw from Oscar Lindberg here was better than what we've seen from Andersson, but Lindberg was further along. I don't know what happened to Lindberg. Following a strong finish with the Rangers in 2017, he was picked over Fast, Grabner and Ranta and was considered by many to be one of Vegas's better picks. He never got off the ground there.

    The chances of a my underachiever for your underachiever deal involving Andersson are strong. It's just a matter of now or a year from now, slight bust for slight bust, or big bust for big bust.

    There’s no salient point to be made on either him or Howden at this point.
    Both still writing their stories. Early chapters for both.
    I vaguely remember reading they thought he could turn into a Ryan Kesler type player.

    It seems to me that Andersson is being groomed by Quinn to be a PK specialist, 3rd line, checking center. To be the young Jesper Fast. There's nothing wrong with that if that's how Andersson sees himself, and maybe he does. Since the start of the season Quinn has mixed up the lines to see what works. Most fans, not just on this forum, have been wondering when Andersson will be given a look in the middle 6. Give the kid 1 or 2 games. Quinn is in it to win it, we get that. Every other rookie has gotten the line bumps and the minutes, deserved or not in some cases. From what many have seen, Anderssons effort doesn't seem to be in question. His faceoffs were in question and he has rectified that recently. So we still just wait to see if Quinn will give him a chance.

Why would Quinn put the "less engaged" player on the ice for a big face off?

    Every time Lias is mentioned someone throws in the disclaimer: he's playing with "non scorers." Guess who is also a non-scorer? Lias. He has one point. So while Howden isn't impressive, he's more reliable and more productive than Lias to this point. So why in the world would Lias go out randomly for a big faceoff? He hasn't earned that yet.

    Not to say he won't eventually, but he hasn't.
    Since Zibanejad went out, Andersson is at 60% in the faceoff dot.
    Strome 46%
    Howden 41%
    Chytil 33% (Kreider 50%)

    Agree. I dont think his effort is a problem at all. He seems like a hard working kid for me, and you can easily see he’s improved over the summer in some aspects of the game he really needed to work on.
