Lindros is a great player who got a bum rap from a punk like Bobby Clarke. I was hoping Sather would sign Lindros and Leclair, but he was too busy fishing. Lindros gave the Rangers his best effort and I hope he knows how much the fans here in New York appreciated him.
This was really an exciting day for me...I was so relieved when I heard the news break at 4 on the FAN just before I was leaving work. I had been waiting for this day for a few years now and am very happy to see the Big E in blue and white. When he put on that jersey, it seemed so right...like he was where he belonged.
I am not going to put sky high expectations on Lindros. I just hope he stays healthy, plays without fear (a little caution, yes....but fear, no) and with intensity...and with full confidence that the rest of the boys will back him up and be there to support him.
Welcome home Eric...I know you will make us all proud.
Lindros + Allison + O'Neill = 4.55 Million, can not get any better then that.
I mean look at the other teams arround the NHL signing single players to more then these three combined and almost all to long term deals. JFJ went out and got some premium hockey players for dirt cheap and didn't lock any long term deals which gives us lots of wiggle room next year and looking at the lineup I would say our team is definatly a contender.
Lindros - as much as people dispise him, hes still a very good player
When he was on the Rags, he was their best player before he went down. he may not be the best power fwd in the nhl, or play the same physical game, but he is still a very good player, and a friendly guy. Look at all his interviews - total class act.
Lindros was pretty funny today during his press conference with his Head up while stick handling comment. I actually liked Roenick eventhough he knocked us out, but man remember that little dance he did after he scored that goal in OT of game 6 last season?
Finally got back my internet after the power fried the transformer which fried the modem and reuter! AWSOME! I knew he was a Leaf from the score, but bad timing for the internet to be done from wed till sat!
