Hence why other teams went after his (Lindros') knees. I still hate Ulf Samuelsson, Michel Petit, and Igor Ulanov for that crap. And Kasparaitis and Stevens for going after his head.

Were Lindros born 10 years later, he'd have the league protecting him and would be putting together astronomical numbers post-lockout. They sure as heck weren't worried about player protection so much a decade ago.
