A Look At Eric Lindros

Ken Campbell of The Hockey News posted a feature on Eric Lindros on Sunday, so if you have yet to read ti...

It’s a bright fall day on a tree-lined street in one of Toronto’s most exclusive neighborhoods, but the rich and/or famous are nowhere to be seen. Things are pleasantly quiet on this Thursday morning in mid-November. It’s no more than a mile or so north of the bedlam that is downtown, but here, amid a mass of bright yellow leaves, there is nothing but calm and serenity.

On one of the houses, there’s a makeshift sign from a torn cardboard box posted on the front door that reads in black magic marker ink: “Dear Guest: Please refrain from knocking at this time. Thank you.”

The door opens and a mountain of a man stands in the doorway. His hands look as though they could still swallow you whole, then crumple you up and throw you away like a piece of scrap paper. He’s unshaven and graying at the temples, wearing blue sweat pants and a T-shirt with a Batman logo on the chest.

This is where the tranquility ends. Eric Lindros apologizes for the mess as he walks past the three baby car seats at the door and pushes a child’s toy out of the way with his foot.

I’m glad Ken Campbell took the time to interview Lindros and write this article. Thought provoking and very helpful to look back now, see just how off our previous beliefs/knowledge were/was. Also glad to hear he is doing well at this stage of his life. I remember him being an absolute force in the 90s.
