I know what Aubut said. I know S.Savard confirmed it. The deal was almost done. Lindros himself said he had no objections with playing in Montreal. The reason it didn't happen was because the Flyers and Rangers came up with better offers. You can believe whatever you want.

In addition, the Habs had already been shopping Roy prior to the incident. Roy was supposed to have been traded earlier in the 94-95 season for Owen Nolan and S.Fiset. When Lacroix called to confirm the deal, Serge Savard had already been fired earlier that day.
