Good Riddance (

Yet another former all-star who came to the Elephant's Graveyard of 50 Goal Scorers to cash his checks and underperform. I would have taken a left handed Koho and a bag of used practice pucks for him last year. If he is smart, he will take is 8-time concussed squishy head and retire.

I thought he played decently enough considering the giant fork sticking out from under his jersey...

Eric Lindros' career stats:
92-93: Flyers; 41 Goals/75 Points
93-94: Flyers; 44 Goals/97 Points
94-95: Flyers; 29 Goals/70 Points
95-96: Flyers; 47 Goals/115 Points
96-97: Flyers; 32 Goals/79 Points
97-98: Flyers; 30 Goals/71 Points
98-99: Flyers; 40 Goals/93 Points
99-00: Flyers; 27 Goals/59 Points
00-01: Didn't Play
01-02: Rangers; 37 Goals/73 Points
02-03: Rangers; 19 Goals/53 Points
03-04: Rangers; 10 Goals/32 Points
According to the NHLPA, he made $3.3 Million last year.

Let's compare him with, say, Theoren Fleury (another quality player whose numbers went south in Manhattan):
88-89: Flames; 14 Goals/34 Points
89-90: Flames; 31 Goals/66 Points
90-91: Flames; 51 Goals/104 Points
91-92: Flames; 33 Goals/73 Points
92-93: Flames; 34 Goals/100 Points
93-94: Flames; 40 Goals/85 Points
94-95: Flames; 29 Goals/58 Points
95-96: Flames; 46 Goals/96 Points
96-97: Flames; 29 Goals/67 Points
97-98: Flames; 27 Goals/78 Points
98-99: Flames/Avalanche; 40 Goals/93 Points
99-00: Rangers; 15 Goals/64 Points
00-01: Rangers; 30 Goals/74 Points
01-02: Rangers; 24 Goals/63 Points
02-03: Blackhawks; 12 Goals/33 Points

Word is that New York is just too nuts to be a good hockey market, especially since anything players want is readily available...including drugs (FLEURY).

The Rangers never should have even thought about making that trade in the first place. I said so when they did it, too:

"Why? Because even if Lindros does play that well for the next two years,
the Rangers still aren't going anywhere. If this was a playoff team as
currently constituted, and adding one more big gun might bring in a Cup,
things would be very different. But the Rangers simply aren't close."

Ah, yes...when The Flames jumped the shark. I mean, The Toronto Trade was the single swoop that crippled the burgeoning dynasty that was the Flames. Hell, look at their record during the six years before the trade, and the six years afterwards...
