When I have time, I'm always ready to argue in a civilize manner

I think there's too much focus on 'Eric Lindros worrying about physical player'. Yes, Lindros did got his head down on Scott Stevens and got his socks knocked out. Couldn't stay healthy afterwards. But now it seems the conversation has turn into: poor little Lindros should play sheltered minutes against non-physical player so he could play at his potential. Why do I feel this is completely wrong? Eric Lindros, one of the greatest machine of hockey, a tower of strength, a player that everyone was scared to play against around the league, should worry about a #6 defenceman? You wanna play Phil Russel against Eric Lindros? I'll take this matchup everyday of the week & twice on Sunday.
