The question was, if Lindros was healthy, would he have been a top player of all time. To argue that any of Mark Howe, Billy Barber, or Pelle could dominate a game like Eric could is rediculous. In addition, he was more of a force than Clarke and it's difficult to compare players to goalies so i'll leave Bernie alone. The only player you could make an argument for is Clarke and even then, I just don't think Bobby had the natural ability of Eric (obvious) nor the versatile game that Eric had. Eric could dominate a game without taking a shot, how many players could do that in the history of the game?
