Morning Line- Gare Joyce On Eric Lindros

Eric Lindros paid an awful price as a player. In the beginning, because of the judgments of people who didn’t know him. In the end, because of the concussions. He tries to be philosophical about both.

The cynics—and there will be some—will think he’s rehabbing his image. The more fair-minded—and their numbers are growing—will think he’s wiser for his suffering. That he changed over the years.

And again, I say: “You’re wrong about Eric Lindros.”

I’m sure he’s a wonderful guy now.  Probably all the concussions made him forget what a bag of shit he was.

You want me to punch you until you’re no longer a bag of shit?

Nah, I’ve had enough concussions that I’m probably a lost cause at this point.  There might still be hope for you, though.
