There have been countless versions of the same rumor around virtually every team -- including the "Player C was so mad he punched out player A in the locker room when he found A was sleeping with B's wife" variation -- for decades. The internet age just made the stories circulate sooner, further and linger for many more years.

With few exceptions, the stories are almost always total fabrications.

At any rate, getting back to the original topic, Adam did a great job with the article series. Jay Greenberg's Full Spectrum book has even more on how the trade evolved and what other trade packages for Lindros were discussed right up until the end.
