Maybe not in the near future, but if it isn't retired and he isn't in the HOF, in ten-twenty years no one will really care. I mean I know guys like Tim Kerr and Brian Propp meant a lot to this team at certain points and had some pretty great seasons for the Flyers, but if someone throws on one of their numbers, no one will really get all that worked up about it these days. I mean Gagne wore Tim Kerr's number and no one really talks about that. If someone throws on an 88 tomorrow, people might care. If someone does it in 2025 and Lindros is not in the HOF, no one will care. People may make references, but its not going to be like an OMG kind of thing.
