Lindros Might walk….Rangers might let him

Well, Lindros hasn’t had a great season this year, And With a neutral option for next season … he might not want to come back…… and the Rangers might not want him back either.

Lindros Didn’t really want to be in NY when he was traded … but realized it was his only way out from Philly. He Really wanted to be in Toronto … and may find himself playing in Canada next year were he wants to be. Toronto was the only place for him … and he may end up around there next season…… Sather has hinted over and over that Lindros is killing the team when he play’s bad … and he sat on the bench for the first time in his career, this season.

If the Rangers have anyone to replace this guy they might do it….. Who that is? I have no idea….. but even if the Rangers wanted him back … which hasn’t been very convincing… Lindros might not want to come back … because for the first time … he will become a free agent.

Who could replace The big First line center? Holik? maybe I wouldn’t think so…… Nedved? HA, been playing good … but no place near a 1st line Center. Mess? He will play one more season … but that’s it….

Does the name Fedarov ring a bell? I know, I know…. Wings fan’s will flip when they hear that but….. hey contracts are becoming a problem and the Rangers would make there best move ever by getting this guy. He’s a #1 center that’s not a problem … and…. He’s a star, no career ending injury will be near him for years to come….. Unless they can find a different number one Center for the team….. The Rangers might have to keep Lindros around … but like I said before … does he want to stick around? I really don’t know……


Now Philly did a bad job with him… Clark is a nut job and made him look like a bad player on and off the ice…. But fact has it that whenever an NY Reporter talk’s about him they say he is one of the best teammates a player could have…… Surprised? I’m not…. Clark hated him and so….. the rumors went on….. Lindros in fact, invites almost everyone on his team over to eat. One Daily news reporter said … he can’t believe how nice Lindros is off the ice to his teammates and fan’s … and also said Clark built up a bad reputation for him…..

    They are rebuilding, youth is producing and not being rushed by Slats.

    Meanwhile he is trying to do something he never did.

    Thanks the Devs for making Holik get overpaid, they could have signed him for $6M a season months before July, yet they ignored it to then make a first offer of $8.2M and then let the other teams bid over that.

    Concussions aside I would say YES but both are very good. I didn’t get to watch Lindros too much this year. He didn’t have a great year but the games I did see he wasn’t playing the way he usually does. Nolan is the MAN but all I’m saying is Lindros will be big news and a great addition.

  3. WeStSiDe says:

    Becuz you suggest that if Quinn doesnt sign both of them he isnt commited? What are you nuts? We just went through this at the deadline? Why wold you sign them both? It makes NO SENSE! Is lindros gonna be the checking line centre or something?? Think about the budget also, also think if they want to come here, think about the salary cap that may happen… This just isnt logical thinking… I could go on more if you would like..

  4. WeStSiDe says:

    He said the time is now, and that is why he made the trades he made… He didnt mean sign a bunch of big name FA agents at season’s end. The way your thinking is trying to buy the cup, it doesnt work that way.. IF anything, in the off season he will be looking at speed and defence.. First before anything, he has to get rid of the dead beat contracts..

  5. wingerxx says:

    If that is all Lindros’ market value is, Detroit would not be a good fit. He is not suited to a third line role. He will want to go to a team that can use him in a 1st or 2nd line role. The lines above…..Detroit would be better suited having a more defensively oriented player in their third line center slot. Lindros would not get much power play time, from the roster above, since Holmstrom’s main value is on the PP. There are just too many teams that can afford that kind of money, that need Lindros more. The Rangers being team number one.

  6. czar5 says:

    If he’s not signed by July 1st, of course NYR will show him a mountain of cash offer. Sergei could figure that he’s aleready won 2 cups, why not just cash in completely for the last 1/3 of his career? The Rangers would love to hype up an all -Russian line with Federov, Kovalev and Bure. Id hate to see it happen, but its entirely possible, especiallly if the Rangers drop Lindros. How much was the last DET offer Federov turned down $8M or $9M per? Rangers will make j him the NHL’s highest paid player.

  7. beckfan says:

    Hey Mik, besides stating more than once that the Rangers are overpaid and arent going to make the playoffs, did this guy make any clear cut point? He sounds like a broken friggin record.

  8. OldNord says:

    I know all that but he has act like a fucking asshole all the same.

    BTW, the deal for Lindros was :

    Forsberg, Duchesne, Hextall, Huffman, Ricci, two first round picks and 15 millions I think.

    Québec got an huge compensation for his lost but DAMN, they move in Colorado 2 or 3 years later when we was at the top after many awful years.

  9. Tradedude says:

    well if these rumors keep continuing, he’ll just be a headache in the paper.

    But Nolan I say is better, if Lindros played like he did in Philly, than maybe i would reconsider some thoughts. But as of late, past 2 years, i’d say Nolan, besides we’d have to give someone big up. or just big in salary. haha! how bout this lumme, reichel, and a fully loaded rifel to shoot them in the head for lindros. Sounds good, who knows, sather could fall for it lol.

  10. TC_4 says:

    Yes the habs fans were wrong last night, BUT…you Americans forget pretty fast. Wasn’t it the Islander fans who booed the Canadian national anthem last year in the playoffs??? Add to that, the Detroit Piston fans booing the OUR national anthem last year when they played the Raptors in the playoffs??? It happens, your own people are booing your national anthem right now, your going to have to live with it. It was wrong, but it’s going to happen. Bush has pissed off A LOT of people by going to war.

  11. Tradedude says:

    look at the 2 lines ahead of him jackass.

  12. Bishop7979 says:

    I have to admit I’m an american, and I dont know what its like to have a team moved let alone to anouther country but growing up the Nords were always one of the teams I loved to watch, It was great to see Sakic develope into what he is now. And I completely agree that Lindros was a complete and utter prick to do what he did, but even if the team did move, at its core the aves are still the nords, at least from my skewed perspective i can say that, and which would you rather have had lindros and all the problems that would have come with him, or forsberg, ricci the first rounders (do you know who they drafted with them by the way) the cash ect ect.

  13. big_booty says:

    With the whole “Anna” thing, do you really think that Bure and Federov would look forward to being in the same locker room, much less playing on the same line?

    What a catfight that would turn out to be….

  14. slipnaughtyboy says:

    my god, re read what I said…

    I said after this season AND next season…

  15. slipnaughtyboy says:

    The comment was: ” I see Eric Lindros as a third or fourth line center on a good team”

    I refuted that, because he is NOT. You think lindros would go to detroit to play on the 3rd line? Plus as it stands if he ever picks his game up again he’s better then Datsyuk and would be a #1/2 line center easy.

  16. Freeze says:

    I said that Lindross would be a 3rd or 4th line center on a good team. Who would Lindross displace in Colorado as a #1 or #2 center? Sakic? Forsberg?

  17. Freeze says:

    Well said.

    What impact has Lindross had in New York from a playoff perspective? The playoffs is where a lot of NHL teams try to make some bucks to cover high payrolls. That, along with his history of concussions and being the brother of another NHL player whose career ended due to concussions, casts many doubts on Eric Lindross. He is the most overrated player in the NHL today. So much promise, so little fulfillment.

  18. Freeze says:

    I’m not sure that would be a factor. That was an impossible marraige for Fedorov and it would have been the same for Bure had Anna hooked up with him. It’s more likely these 2 Russian comrades would go out to the bar, have a few cold ones, and recall ever so fondly the best of times in Anna’s pants.

  19. OldNord says:

    I turn my back at the organisation when they’re move off. I’m an Habs fan now, sound weird cause I was a “big hater” of them.

    With their picks, Québec drafted Jocelyn Thibault and they traded the other at Toronto in the exchange of Sundin,W Clark, Lefevbre etc.

  20. Malurous says:

    I think that was one of the best/worst trades ever. The Selanne to Anaheim trade was awful for the Jets/Coyotes if you look a few years further and the Neely trade was awesome for Boston (Barry Pederson to VAN for Neely and a first rounder that became Glen Wesley who was traded for three first rounders, two of which became McLaren and Samsonov). But I think no other team has affected two teams fortunes so immensely. Philadelphia suddenly got a base to build on and got some respect. Quebec/Colorado got their cups thank largely to that: Forsberg came in and Thibault got them Roy.

  21. Malurous says:

    Phew… at least there are some Americans that are against the war and realize that Bush is making mistakes, not only by going to war btw, but especially in domestic issues. I’m so happy the congress turned down the oil drills in the nature preservation zones in Alaska. It would have sucked.

  22. ThePocketRocket says:

    Nolan with Lindros spells trouble….Nolan has stated over the years that he thinks Lindros is a big baby and it is known that they do not like each other, it started during junior and continues today. They have set aside their differences during the olympics, but that was only for 2 weeks +/-, I can’t see these two guys together for a full season. Lindros missed the boat to become a Leaf last year.

  23. sportside24 says:

    If Lindros is a free agent next summer, Toronto fans would demand management to sign him..

    Dont blame Canadians for not helping you ass its our messed up prime minster.
