Lindros Deal Finalized; Waiting for League Approval
The Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers have finalized the Lindros deal. The Flyers will aquire Jan Hlavac, Kim Johnsson, Pavel Brendl and a mid-round draft pick, and the Rangers get Lindros and a conditional first-round draft pick if he doesn’t play enough games. The Rangers also reached a deal with Lindros reportedly worth $37 million over four years.
Sources say the final sticking point of the deal was insurance, was solved Friday. TSN reports that if Lindros suffers a concussion during the 2001-02 season, he will not be insured for the first year.
“I expect it to be resolved on Monday,” Clarke said.
