3) Just curious but who would you put in your top 10?
Lindros will be in the hof. There's just a ton of good players from that era that had longer more productive careers with more significant impact on their teams. a goal, 2 assists and a minus 5 in the biggest playoff series of his career while being swept is pretty disappointing after the tear he was on that year. You can't deny Lindros played with a lot of great players during his time here. of course he was our best player during that five years, which is why I'm more surprised he's not more of a lock for the less important flyers hof which he should already be in since he was here during his great years. as far as top 10 centers go you have gretzky, messier, yzerman, lemeuix, trottier, crosby, bobby clarke, joe sakic, phil esposito and peter forsberg. all had more of an impact longer term with more success for their teams. lindros is pretty much 11 tho.
