Dumb enough..............or grateful enough? Think about that.

Then you're not in a position to critize him, you're his accomplice.
Well if the guy is being put on the block by Quebec you'd be stupid not to go after him. If no one does, that is pretty much what we call collusion. It still doesn't mean I condone him turning his back on the franchise that needed him.

Which unspoken verbal contract are you referring to?
You are right, it is not unspoken. It is in the CBA. Even better.

It tells us something about the mentality of people, but not about whether Lindros was right or wrong.
He basically broke the rules of the draft. They are set in place, they are agreed upon by both sides - even agents. I guess if meddling parents don't like it though........
