The NHL is a pale shadow of its former self.

Guys like Lindros are non-existant because Buttman has squeezed all of the passion out of the game with threats of suspensions and fines so guys, even Lucic who is loosely compared to Lindros because he plays that power game, are thinking twice before laying on a hit.

Lindros never had to think twice, he just did what he did.

Lindros was a MAN, today's players are children compared to him and while I don't like a lot of things about him, I think his attitude wasn't always great, he was great to watch play.
