Welcome to a Flyers fans world during the 90's. Refs let players get away with murder on Lindros, figuring he's big enough to fight through everything. Then when he would just touch someone he'd get called because he was so much bigger and stronger than everyone else.

Also Lindros has a history of shoulder problems, start in his rookie or 2nd year when Ulanov gave him a cheapshot into the boards from behind.
