What a moment on that Lindros to leclair goal. Didn't look too far off from 1996! Really made the game.

Lindros is incredibly appreciative of the crowd's reaction.

You could tell at the end they were trying to get the big E a goal....concussions robbed flyer fans and hockey fans of one of the games most physically gifted talents

Whether his body would hold up... that's a legitimate question.

Like I said, I seriously doubt it happens, but wow would I love to see it. Being born in 90, I basically learned the game and grew up watching Lindros play.
He was playing against people that were 60. Get real

Big E can still own Philly. He didn't leave on the best of terms, but we'll never forget his game.

Great stuff. Lindros still looks like he could be a 40point guy (if he could ever play 82 games (lmao, know he was against 60 year olds, but...)). Hope Lindros goes HOF one day, don't think anyone apart from Gretsky, Lemieux or Howe have dominated hockey quite like he did for those years from 93-99ish, top 3 player, top few hitters, one of the toughest fighters in the league, best player maybe ever to watch. No one could stop him when he was on his game. If Neeley is in, Lindros deserves it by a mile, top 5 talents ever to play. Nostalgia is kicking in, but stand by what I say!

Former Flyers writer and now of CSN Washington Chuck Gormley was at the game today and just checked in on WIP. He reported that he was in the elevator with Holmgren after the game. Homer supposedly got a three word text from Lavy which he shared with Chuck:

Oh man...what an amazing afternoon. I sat up in 420 and honestly, I don't know if I'd of traded those seats for lower level front and center. I was at center ice and it was perfect.

The Leclair goal was incredible to see. I haven't felt that giddy in a long time. The whole day was ****ing perfect. Extremely pleased I got to be there.

Those of you going to the actual WC are in for the treat of a lifetime. I can't imagine how great an actual game is going to be there...
