Of course he's worthy. He's got a Hart and a Pearson and a tied Ross and a very good playoff record. His PPG is through the roof.

Lindros impact on the game was substansial. Teams started to draft totally irrationally and out of panic because of him when 6'5 guys who couldn't play very well like Belak, Rupp, Scott Parker and, ironically, Brett Lindros were choosen very high in the draft to match up against Eric. Indirectly you can even say that the DPE and the backpack hockey of the late 90s early 00s, partially, came as an answer to Lindros. Guys like Derian Hatcher and Matvichuk were allowed to backpack on forwards because Lindros toyed with players in the corners.
