Compare Eric Lindros Vs. Jeremy Roenick

Who was the better player? Both were scoring threats, both were physical players although Lindros was bigger and could fight while Roenick couldn't (he tried but wasn't good at it)

Eric Lindros easily. Roenick doesn't compare to him.

Lindros had a far better peak and prime, even with the injuries but Jeremy also was an excellent peak play and had a very good but under rated career IMO.

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

Lindros was very easily better.

Roenick was a hell of a player at his peak too, though. Really talented and gritty to the point of being reckless to himself.

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.

Roenick is pretty underrated these parts but Lindros was simply better.

Lindros at his peak was one of the best two forwards on earth. (Him and Jagr.)

Roenick at his peak (1991-93) was probably ~10-15th best in the NHL among forwards.
