Lindros was actually considered to be one of the better Leafs players when he was playing. But that is the problem... WHEN he was playing. Even during a concussion free season, he missed a large chunk of the season with another season ending injury.

I wouldn't mind adding a player of his talent and abilities, but it is a HUGE risk with the potential of a big reward if all goes well. I think Lindros will be stuck receiving incentive laden contracts for the rest of his career.

I miss watching the dominant Lindros of the mid-late 90's. He could pass, shoot, fight, check, win draws, etc. Lindros was one of the most feared players back then and he was the total package. But we have to come to the realization that he isn't that player anymore, just like how JR is no longer the player he once was.
