Really nice article, awesome to know how well he is doing.
I definitely think that him moving to the wing (for periods of time) circa 02-03, and later full time, and from then on not playing half as physical a game and not pissing people off as much, saved a lot of brain cells and probably gave him the chance to live a normal life... even if it limited his point production, definitely worth it!
I always thought (up until his wrist was ruined in Toronto) that while he could be nowhere near the old Lindros after the Stevens hit, he could still be a close to a PPG player if he played the same style at centre as he used to... as he showed in 01-02, and when he was put at 1st line centre in Toronto for 10-15 games when Sundin was injured in 05-06, I watched a lot of those games and he showed at times just how fantastic a player he could still be... then he got his wrist injured and could not even begin to shoot in his last year.
