Eric Lindros

Hey guys,
I just have a quick question for you guys. Where is Eric Lindros going??
I have heard rumours that Nashville may get him. It was in the Nashville paper the Tennessean. Anyone heard anything? Do you think he would be a good fit in Nashville?

I believe there was some rumor of Nashville offering him 3.5 million. Then again, I can't see anyone offering that much, so I doubt the validity of said rumor...

Do we have confirmation? Has Lindros gone on the Lindsay Lohan diet?

Based on their previous signings, I'd have to think the B's would be out of the running for EL.

What they should be doing is focusing on shoring up the defense.

I think he's going to wind up either back with the Rangers or with Toronto but if the dollars are right, he could go to where ever the money is best.

Lindros is really over weight?
How much do you figure he would get signed for??
I was thinking like 2.5 million/year.
Calgary and Boston are false rumours for sure. Both of those teams just dished out alot of money and filled their needs. I mean Calgary just re-signed Iginla and signed Amonte. Boston just signed a good center in Zhamnov and signed Leetch.
I also do not see him going back to NYR.
I think the only team that may go for him other than Nashville is Toronto. But Toronto is my home team so I think either way I will be seeing more of Eric.

But How much would he make a year?
Do you realistically see him in Nashville??

Lindros was on the golf course doing an interview for TSN and looked to be in good condition. He was also begging for Toronto to sign him. He was talking about the players they have there and how good the O'Neill trade and sign turned out. I think the Big E is going to have his achy breaky heart broken and have to head to Nashville because I don't think the Leafs are interested right now.

Lindros' face is so fat that he looks like Spanky from the Little Rascals when he got the mumps.

Although he looks like Crispin Glover compared to Keith Tkaczuk - he is enormous.

I think you're probably going to see Eric's contract fall in line with that of a Jason Allison. It's likely going to be in the 1.5-2 million dollar range. As far as teams go, at this point I'd have to say the Rangers are off that list. They've signed Straka (C), Nylander (C), Rucinsky, Nieminen, Ward and have also got several young forwards to integrate into the system (Lundmark, Balej, Ortmeyer, Hollweg, Giroux). At this point, it seems that the Rangers are very likely done signing players - unless, that is, they find an ammicable deal for Tom Poti.

The Leafs might be able to use Lindros but if Allison commits, I can't see Lindros fitting in unless they plan to use him on the right side.

A team like Calgary might be able to use him as a cheap 2nd line centre or even a great fit in with Iggy. His price might not be prohibitive either.

Then again, this is just what I think.

Renberg is 33, Lindros is 32. The only old one is LeClair. Bad joke.

I know he is not comming to Philadelphia. My guess Boston or Toronto. I think Toronto because Leafs fans already bought 88 jerseys. I wonder if LeClair will go there too.

I predict St. Louis. LP tried to get him a few years ago for Turgeon, and his salary will fall so low due to the concussions the Blues will be able to afford him...
