I wouldn't know where to find it now, but I thought I read years ago an analysis of the impact that Lindros and Leclair had on each other and in the end it was Lindros that benefited more from Leclair.

In any case I do know that Leclair had two 50+ goal seasons when Lindros had considerable time off due to injury, so I wouldn't doubt that it's true.
