Lindros has more goals since the trade since all those guys combined- but might be done- and Johnson has a lot of years left as our #1 or #2 defenseman and power play quarterback. His first year with the Rangers he had 37 goals! And the NY media crucified him...

The whole thing is confusing. One thing is true- NY is a tough place to play (or watch) hockey these days...
I maintain that it was impossible for the Flyers to "lose" the trade (and I hate looking at trades in terms of wins and losses). The Flyers got something for nothing. Lindros was not going to play for them. He was not on the roster. He was not in hockey. Clarke got something for nothing.
