Lindros to Retire


TSN is reporting that Eric Lindros will be announcing his retirement tomorrow. TSN also posted a nice article by the Canadian Press on the career of Lindros...

"...The Big E made it through 13 seasons despite eight concussions - injuries that eroded his impact later in his career.

But he remains one of the most compelling impact players to skate in the NHL, and he wore Canada's colours with distinction in earning gold and silver Olympic medals..."

...concussions obviously took away what could have been one of the best players of all time. Early in his career he could score, pass, hit, fight, he did everything. I think we all remember the 1997 Conference Finals.

...we all hoped he could resurrect his career when he came to the Rangers and while he did have some good times with the Rangers he never regained that superstar status.

...I've read on a couple of Websites that Lindros should be in the Hockey Hall of Fame. I'm not quite sure I agree with that.
