In all honesty, if I knew what Peter Forsberg would become, its hard to argue trading Forsberg straight up for Lindros.

Lindros without the concussions and his parents is a whole different story though, but you can't change that now.
Exactly.

I am biased though, I blame Lindros for the departure of Rod Brind'Amour, one of my favorite hockey players.
I would argue that the Flyers could've won with a real goalie. Take Lindros out of the team, they're nothing, add a good goaltender and they are cup contenders.

Still though. We got 3 points and 41 games out of Niinima, and missed the playoffs. Dallas made the playoffs, and got a player who would go on to lead the team in points for the next 2 years. Looking at it like that, it's a bad trade.

But as a Habs fan, it was certainly necessary. He brought more bad to the team than good.

Although I suppose it was a LITTLE bit better.
actually, jagr for carter was WORSE than jagr for a bag of pucks. washington got carter (i.e. more useless than a bag of pucks and whom they dumped at the deadline for a reclamation project) PLUS they had to pay half of jagr's salary until... now.
