Never forget how pissed off I was watching him against the Rangers the 1st time he played against them. He had everything -- size, great release, very good passer, good skater and an all around great hockey player. Just as dominating as Crosby except that he was bigger than just about anybody else. He shoulda been one of the greats!!!
I'm a huge Lindros fan, I was devastated when the arbitrator ruled in favor of the Philly deal with Quebec for his rights in 1992. I even remember the arbitrator's name: LARRY BERTUZZI.

I hated that man...then again, who knows if we would have won the Cup in the last 15 years...look at Philly, went to the Cup Final once, while Quebec/Colorado won 2 Stanley Cups and have been one of the top teams in the NHL since 1995...

Needless to say it was a dream come true when we traded for Lindros...and he played well for us, too bad his injuries were always there. The guy almost died in Nashville from internal bleeding.

Actually that was Game #4 at the Garden and put Philly up 3-1 heading home, where they closed us out...

I've always said, if we didn't lose so many defensive players in each of the three series of that season, including Leetch getting hurt bigtime against Philly, that series would have been different.

Imagine a Rangers vs. Red Wings Stanley Cup Final, it would have been awesome - Original 6 matchup!

You totally suck for bringing up Brent Fedyk...between him and Bob Errey, I don't know which was worse...such bad times, we went through so many players. And to think we couldn't get someone awesome to play with Gretzky in 98 & 99
