He took on a low profile role on the fourth line and performed adequately, basically shoving his ego aside.
Lindros was 18th in scoring in 2002, but by then, he was something of a perimeter player who wasn't providing much but scoring. He certainly wasn't the bull in a china shop Lindros that everyone remembers.
