If Lindros had played for them, you'd be looking at a team including:

Sakic
Lindros
Sundin
Nolan
Kamensky
Kovalenko
Rucinsky
Young

with little depth on defense outside of an Adam Foote and some pitiful goaltending. The Lindros deal really fleshed out their ranks and allowed them to add guys like Duchesne and then populate their forward group with serviceable talent like Ricci and later Forsberg.

But who knows, maybe they steam roll offensively, or they trade a couple of those guys for defense and goaltending and still roll with Sakic and Lindros and Sundin up front.

Although I do have to say a Sakic-Lindros 1, 2 punch just doesn't sound right in terms of chemistry or cohesive playing style.
