i dont think the avs would have been as good with lindros. the nordiques not only got forsberg, they also got Mike Ricci, Ron Hextall, Chris Simon, Kerry Huffman, Steve Duchesne, a 1st round selection (Jocelyn Thibault) in 1993, a 1st round selection (later traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, later traded to the Washington Capitals—Nolan Baumgartner) in 1994, and $15,000,000 cash.

Hextall became Uwe Krupp
Ricci became Alex Tanguay
the pick (and mats sundin) traded to the leafs was for Wendel Clark, who became Claude Lemieux
and the tibault pick became part of the deal to get Roy and Mike Keane

simon was pretty good for the avs

all in all i dont think they have the depth that made them so succesful withour the lindros trade.
