Not at all. Look at how bad Philly was before Lindros got there.
H2H, only Forsberg is comprable to Lindros.

Hextall cost them the 1993 ADSF and was on the Isles the next season

Duchense was very good but traded for Garth Butcher after one season in QC

Ricci was a very good role player but Philly had Rod Brindamour who was better

Simon was a 3rd liner at best

Huffman, Thibeualt and Baumgartner never really amounted to anything special for Colorado

Lindros was one of the most dominant players in the NHL, as was Forsberg. Both players had a great impact on their new organizations.

You wanna see lopsided?:

Mark Messier for Bernie Nicholls, Louie Debrusk and Steven Rice, or Yashin for Spezza and Chara come to mind.
