Lindros Retirement

[This post is temporarily ‘sticky’ to top of KK - updates in the comments]

From the CP via The Hockey News,

The 33-year-old Lindros, a free agent who has not played this season, is expected to announce his retirement in his hometown of London, Ont., on Thursday. 

The Big E made it through 13 seasons despite eight concussions - injuries that eroded his impact later in his career.  But he remains one of the most compelling impact players to skate in the NHL, and he wore Canada’s colours with distinction in earning gold and silver Olympic medals.

Bobby Clarke argues that Lindros should make it to the HHOF, but there’s likely to be a lot of debate. (updates: more articles on Lindros and his career will be added to the comments of this post)

Update 12:50pm ET: ESPN video discussing Lindros’ legacy is below.
