Lindros and LeClair

Sometimes it seems to be that Lindros made LecLair better player and LecLair made Lindros shine...im not sure about this but when they played together in Flyers they both rocked hard (also Renberg was quite god those days)...im sure Lindros had lot of potential himself, but LeClair really played above the limits in those seasons...

leclaire was a very good player but wothout Eric he is not a 50 goal scorer multiple times. Not a knock just reality. they are both going to go down as all time flyer greats.

If Lindros had stayed healthy, I'm sure we would have talked about Lindros-Leclair being one of the best duo's in NHL history. They were something special, I tell ya.

Renberg, without the injuries would have been a better player than LeClair.

38 goals and 82 points as a rookie, he then followed that up by scoring 57 points in 47 games during the lockout shortened season.

Then early in the next season he suffered an abdominal injury and he was never the same again. What made him sp good was that he was 6'2 220 and coul fly. He would routinely beat defenseman to the outside with speed and take the puck right to the net or score with a very very good wrist shot.

After the abdominal injury he went from being one of the faster players in the NHL to just being an average skater. He no longer had that burst of speed and couldn't beat defenseman wide. That made him easier to play against and he went from being one of the 4 or 5 best RW's in the game to being just a regula player.

People seem to forget just how good Lindros was. He was living up to the hype, and was just utterly dominant in almost every category of hockey when healthy.

I hope he puts a respectable season together in Dallas, he has really grown up.

Of course we all know lindros was amazing. The fact that he had all these complications in Philly just made him a 'daddys boy'. Lets just put it at that. Then when concusions took over his game, it felt like, no matter what he did, he would get hurt. Im sure if your star player did that it would agrivate the crap out of you. FORSBERG ha, but...Fopa is a respectable guy so everyone just says, aw man, Forsbergs hurt AGAIN. Its totally different. Lindros...is no longer a fan favorite here in Philly

I think he meant that LeClair threw Lindros over the top. He didn't make him better, but he really complimented EL perfectly , making him shine.

I meant Lindros played very well and LeClair made those spectular passes goals...

So LeClair was that good that he could make goals from Lindros plays...

LeClair makes those goals without Lindros.

LeClair currently is still a decent and consistant hockey player.

Lindros currently is...

I think they complemented each other well. Leclair still managed to put up some good numbers despite Lindros missing good chunks of the seasons with various injuries so I don't feel his success only came when Eric was around. Not to take anything away from Lindros but I think Leclair was a top winger with or without Eric.

I didn`t mean that LeClair is poor player...i mean he was always quite good, but when he came Philly he really got lot of help from Lindros...line chemistry was superb and Renberg was in flames too!

Lindros was so much better than Leclair it's not even funny. A very good goal-scorer, but no way he gets 50 without a player of Lindros' calibre on his line.

At this point, Lindros is still a better player than Leclair. He's just rarely healthy enough to show it.

in 1997 Eric Lindros was top 3 in hockey. Only guys who I thought were either more dominant also played in Pen.

Lindros
Mario
Jagr

These players were in the same category

In his prime not many players I'd take over Lindros. Lindros in his prime was the greatest power forward in NHL history. I'd rather have a Lindros in his prime over a Gordie Howe in his prime. He was just that dominate. I also liked his career(Lindros) than Forsbergs. In his prime he was so complete it was scary. Good offensively, defensively, gritty, and one hell of a hitter.

That hit on Andreas Dackell still makes me go damn...

You do realize that Lindros was not even in the top 10 in goals, assists, or points in 1997, right? Definitely not understanding how find some equivalency between Lindros, Lemieux, and Jagr for that season, or any for that matter.
