Lindros is not the total package he used to be, but neither is Peca since his knee injury. Peca's face off percentage is 54.9%, Lindros' is 53.5%. Peca was credited with 72 hits in 71 games, Lindros had 38 in 31 games. Mean hits or not, Lindros didn't shy away from playing the man. I attended games that Lindros played on the road this year and he is as much of a pest with his on ice presence as Peca is.

I can't believe I'm defending Lindros. Peca is probably more of a Maurice type player than Lindros, however.
