Kukla's Korner Hockey

Who Wants 88

from the Toronto Sun,
Now what for Eric Lindros? Another team, another town, another gamble, another partial season? For a million a year, somebody might be interested. The question at this stage of his life: Is he? Last season Lindros played for the smallest paycheck of a professional career that has earned him almost $48 million US. To sign to play another season, here, somewhere, anywhere, he will have to play for less than he has ever been paid before. In the next week or so, he'll find out more about his wrist. The Leafs will find out more. A determination will have to be made. He was The Next One and the hype wasn't hype. All of it was earned early on. Lindros never scored 50 goals in an NHL season, but he scored at a 50-goal pace in each of his first five years in Philadelphia. If only he could have played 82 game seasons. If only.
