Damn, I wish I could read the whole story.

Hated him with a passion before he was a Ranger, but what happened to him was devastating. He was such an immense talent and I was in awe of his physical presence. One of the best power forwards of all time.

I hope the NHL reads this article, because I still don't think they handle concussions seriously enough. More evidence is coming out that concussions can really alter one's mental state and lead to depression, and I think all sports leagues should be proactive in offering counseling to those who have suffered a concussion.

I respected Lindros as a flyer, I liked him as a Ranger as he heavily beefed up our list of all time names on paper. Probably makes the starting line up of best 12 forwards we ever had(without really thinking about it)

For being 38, Lindros looks bad in that picture.

I loved Lindros the player. He belongs in the hall of fame. But blaming his jerk like qualities on concussions is a stretch.
The concussions just made it worse.
He looks awful.

I always thought he would write a book when he was finished to tell the truth about all the crazy stories that came out of Philly.
