I remember Hartnell saying that he thought that Lindros was still better than a lot of current NHL players and that some of the stuff he was doing in the practices were amazing! I think that was before the Winter Classic when Lindros came to a few practices. (like maybe 2)

And yeh, Howe looked like he could still play... he looked better than a lot of the guys who had retired very recently!
