Lindros Fits In With Dallas

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated via Yahoo,
All right, so Eric Lindros is not the wrecking ball he was when he crashed his way to the Hart Trophy in 1995. He's not even the guy who scored 93 points in just 71 games with the Flyers back in 1998-99. Sure, Lindros is about as sturdy as a porcelain doll, but consider the big picture. The team gave up no assets to acquire him. His cap hit, a reported $1.5 million plus performance bonuses that can be shifted to the cap in 2007-08, is very manageable. And his surgically repaired wrist -- his primary health concern at the moment -- is expected to be fully functional for the start of the new season.
