I have a feeling he's going to come home one day as a UFA, and not like a beaten down old Eric Lindros either.
Yes, too bad Lindros wasn't allowed to play where he wanted once his time in Philadelphia was long overdue. Owners don't care about what a player wants, and as he should is only concerned about himself (owner).
That's why free agency rights are important to players.
The goal is winning the Stanley Cup. After signing in Dallas and Carolina respectively they went to three Stanley Cup Finals and won once. Hull scored the Cup winning goal. Hull led the playoffs in scoring.
Do you think any player - or fan - gives a **** about All-Star votes compared to competing for the Cup?
So Cujo was near the top or winner of 7 different major trophies while Hull and Francis got zero votes for any hardware (while others on their own team did) and the best either of them could manage was a single All Star vote and you want to argue who was better?
The entire hockey world disagrees with you. The players themselves disagree with you. I'm glad you think they were better. No one else does (or did) but keep living the dream.
