Jeremy is good for the game but Lindros was special and he had the wow factor.So Lindros is the guy but I will say the guy had a big ego and he had a inflated value of himself.But Yea I would take Erik any day-As a 18 yrs old he played for Team Canada with Wayne G and others.Every decade or so someone is considered the next big thing and Erik was one of those rare players
If you took Roenick, kept the skill level the same, added 4-5 inches and traded about 40 IQ points for 40 pounds, you have Eric Lindros
And don't get me wrong here, I'm not calling Lindros a complete meat-head like I would Bertuzzi. Not the brightest bulb was Lindros but not that bad. It's just that Roenick is a very intelligent and quick witted guy.
If it's any consolation I would put Lindros in the HHOF before I would Roenick. I wouldn't put Roenick in the HHOF. His bark was always worse than his bite. Not that he wasn't a good player even after Chicago, but he was never the same and lost a lot of that flair. You'd see it in glimpses, but as a Hawk you saw it all the time.
