I wouldnt be surprised if Ferguson shows little interest or doesn't make an offer.

Apparentely, he's shown a lot of maturity in New York.

He's taken responsibility for his poor play and all and hasn't made excuses.

I for sure wouldn't want Lindros now. However next year when we've lost Roberts, Nieuwendyk, Reichel and possibly Antropov to a trade, we could use a guy like Lindros. I'm not convinced that he's happy in New York. I think his game would improve in a Leaf jersey. I also think he'd enjoy the role as a 2nd line centre in Toronto.

It's everything about him I don't like.

He's an arrogant POS off the ice.

If they are going to pick up Lindros, they need to do it this season, this season is when they need him. They have the chance to win the cup now, Lindros (while not the same Lindros he was before) can help them do that. He'd be ten times more valuable to them going into the playoffs this year then as part of a team with a group of aging fowards, a young defensive core and goalie.

We don't need Lindros! We need D who are strong like ox and almost as smart.

There might be a few veteran players in the NHL that I could see the Leafs get, but Lindros is definitely not one of them.

As for his perosnal side, don't get me started....

I think some have and some havn't you just have to except that level of stupidity. I would not offer him a huge contract, he actually would probably play here for peanuts if he doesn't stay in New York.

Yeah, he's really wanting to play in Toronto.

I think if Joe retires this offseason, Eric Lindros would be a great #2 centre.

And I think that he'd take less the $3,000,000 a year to play here. That's a bargain considering what we've paid Robert Reichel over the years, as well as Renberg and even Domi.

Oh, I guess every other professional athlete carries on the way he does.

I went to the same high school as he did in Whitby. He's always been a *****,even before he went to the NHL.

So you went to school with him?

Or just the same school... at different times?

Make one for Kovalev and Lidstrom too.

As for Lindros, I think he'd be a great addition next season (if there is a season), he always seems to play well in Toronto and he could take over for Niewuendyk.
