Him and Jagr were for several years the best two forwards in the NHL by a mile.

Plus he was such a unique, different player, there will never be another player like Lindros.

Edit: sorry for the ***** formatting... copied from a notepad doc instead of what I would usually do and write it in!
Lindros was a beast. Many people overlook how dominate he was in his hay day because his career didn't have the longevity and all the bs that surrounded him. He was a talent that probably won't come around again in our life times again. It was a treat watching him and Leclair do their thing every night night.

If there was ever a such thing as a five-tool player in hockey like there is in baseball he would be the prototype. The guy could simply do it all.
