Great line during their time.

Thought I would pass this along to everyone and like one person already said, I thought Renberg already retired.

I thought with the size and skill of Lindros he would have been the greatest player of all-time. I loved watching him play early in his career. But once the injuries started he really tailed off quickly. If any of you get a chance, find a Classic Playoff series of the Flyers with the LOD playing. Lindros was incredible. All the negative press has really tarnished his image, but man what a player he was!

Phigment - Agreed. Lindros was dominant before injuries caught up with him. When he started in the NHL the only guy bigger than him was Uwe Krupp. I don't remember who it was but in an interview after fighting Lindros a player said 'It was like wrestling a bear.' When he was really on his game and skating strongly he was very difficult to stop, I remember seeing checkers bounce right off him without slowing him down. Too bad injuries stopped him from playing to his potential. In spite of it all though, he did have a pretty good career and was an effective player right up to the end.
