I know it was mearly a suggestion Bob McKenzie's part, but lets say it is a true rumor...wouldn't you if you BG trade a 3rd rounder? It is a draft pick, we have a lot of and prospects we aren't short of...so a pick is not a big give away in our situation of having an abundance of kids almost ready to make the next step to the NHL.
A healthy Lindros could potentially help us get to the 2nd round or further. Do you not think that Mr.Gillette would like to at least host 2 series in the playoffs to get some cash into the Montreal System? If it is do-able it will be done IMO.
Sure Lindros can walk away come July 1 because we wouldn't pick up a 10 million dollar option, you let him walk and there won't be takers knocking down his door. Maybe you can sign him to a NHL base salary of 1 million and have it incentive driven for games played, goals scored, points totaled, team standings, playoffs and so on. Such a deal would be smart on our end in case of injury, plus it makes Lindrso want to perform to get those bonses...it may make him keep his head up too.
I would definitly make this trade.
