Lindros was a talented physical specimen in his prime. Great wrist shot, slap shot, checking ability, and underrated skating ability. He was powerful skater that was very hard to knock off the puck.
One was a teammate of his and the other was Gretzky who compliments everyone. I have heard him say the same thing about Kent Nilsson being the most talented he's ever seen.
Fedorov just coasted too often for my liking. In the postseason, he was always money, but in an 82 game season year in and year out, game in and game out, he could have shown more of his talents in my opinion.
As for Lindros, yeah I think his hockey sense was too far behind some of the others on here. Lots of issues with him there. Skating with his head down, constantly, ring a bell at all? You didn't see the others do that.
