Most forget that Lindros was the single reason the Corestate Center was able to be built. He single handedly sold more tickets, got more players wanting to come to Philly and such....He was great for the Team more so than just on the Ice.

Hind sight is always 20/20, would Forsberg have been as amazing had he never been traded from the Flyers. Was his time playing with Sakic a blessing in disguise? Forsberg was huge for the Avs but he was not the MAN, Sakic was...so there was not the pressure on him...I am not diminishing what he was...because for God's Sake he was probably the Best player in the late 99's early 00's

I will always love the trade, he gave us hope of something better for the Flyers who were just plain awful for the previous 3 years....you could tell even from his first game he was something special. Before the injuries took over he was a beast, he could skate, score, hit, fight and lead.
