When Lindros' resigned from his position at ombudsman, there was talk that the reason he was stepping down was due to him butting heads with Kelly, namely over Lindros doing everything he could to prove his worth and prove the need of the position. So Lindros would chase down every lead, dig up dissent even if it wasn't really there and try to investigate griefs with the NHLPA brass whether they were worthwhile causes or not.
Is it too big of a jump to imagine Lindros going from digging up corpses and chasing ghosts to actively causing problems?
