When is he a UFA? I assume he'll be busting his boys to be coming to Toronto, just want to know when we can expect him. I'm sure To bill be the turn around of an uninterested Lindros. His contract of (games played) brings down his #1 asset, physical play. I want to see him in blue and white, just don't know when that can happen
I used to think he'd come and be dominant, but it's probably more wishful thinking than anything else. It's not like he's tanking it on purpose in NY, he's probably too afraid to play the way he used to.
I don't think the sideshow would be worth it. Clearly Lindros is not the player he was several years ago nor will he be with the myriad of injuries he has suffered over the years. I don't see him fitting in well with the leafs game plan for the future and if you believe the baggage (Bonnie/ego) that he carries do you really want him around anyway. I would have to think that there will be better places to spend the money than on Eric. Obviously there are some serious issues with the entire team in New York (with that payroll they should be better) and has Eric been a contributing factor to that problem or has he been a leader. I don't have the answer to that question but I am sure there are some good hockey folk in NY who can answer that question for the Leafs.
