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.

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."
There's a bit of a difference, as the NHL isn't publicly traded (IIRC, neither was the WWE at the time) and operates as a consensus of crazy millionaires & billionaires owning teams.
