Lindros wasn't just a "hyped" prospect. He was better than Ovechkin and Crosby.

Before the trade Lindros had played in the 1991 Canada Cup, and didn't look out of place at all. Flattened and took Ulf Samuleson right out of the tourney.

Lindros was a top 5 player the moment he stepped on the NHL ice.
