He is creating opportunities and has been the closest thing this has to a play maker. Is he the world class player that TLB would have us believe he is? Of course not. But he has been a lot better than just a good third liner.

---Yeah, third-liner probably isn't the best choice of words, what I meant more is that Lindros is much more of a strong support player than a go-to guy. He's a sheep, not a shepherd. He will contribute, but he's not going to carry a team on his back.
