Or is it those 95-96... when he was our top point scorer in the playoffs?

Or those 94-95 playoffs... when he was our top point scorer in the playoffs?

Or 97-98... he was really poor in those playoffs, only our 2nd best point scorer in them!

Or 99-00... when he came back from a severe concussion against doctors advice to try and help the team, after being publicly humiliated by the team after they had contributed to him almost dying the year before and misdiagnosed numerous concussions...

and was the only guy on the roster who even turned up for game 6, and the only guy who scored, heck, at the time it seemed like his line were the only ones to have any shots that game!

He was clutch... as his playoff performances compared to the rest of the team shows, as do the games when he was the only guy on the score-sheet, but you can't do everything yourself. Up until 99-00 our team usually only had 5 top 9 guys... if Lindros did not produce magic each game, we usually lost.

How is that not 'performing when it matters.'
wo wo wo alright dude. i get it. you love the guy. calm down. he was a great player but we didn't win a cup with him. was it all on him? no. did he skate with his head down like a tard? yes
