One of the more popular--not to mention effective--lines in Philadelphia Flyers history will be reunited this winter, when John LeClair, Mikael Renberg and Eric Lindros lace up their skates together at the Flyers-Rangers Alumni game on December 31st. Lindros confirmed the "Legion of Doom" line will skate again this morning in an interview with 590 AM in Toronto.
The line, which existed from 1995 to 1997, was named because of the three skaters' combination of size and skill. During those three years, the trio combined for 305 goals, 361 assists, and 631 penalty minutes. LeClair had 97 points in both 1995-96 and the following season, his career high for point totals, while Lindros' 70 points in the strike-shortened 1994-95 year led the NHL and earned him both the Hart trophy for MVP as well as the Ted Lindsay award, the Outstanding Player trophy handed out by the NHLPA.
The fact that Lindros is even playing in the game comes as a testament to how much times have cha...

"I knew he was in trouble and needed help," said Briere, who skated with Pronger to...
Eric Lindros confirmed on Wednesday that he will be playing hockey in the City of Brotherly Love - well, the Winter Classic Alumni Game, that is.
The former Philadelphia Flyers captain told 590 AM radio in Toronto that he will participate in a reunion of the Legion of Doom line with John LeClair and Mikael Renberg during the Alumni Game at Citizens Bank Park on Dec. 31.
By his own admission, Ian Laperriere was too macho to wear a visor. Then he took a Paul Martin slap shot to the face during the 2010 playoffs and suffered a brain contusion and concussion. He valiantly returned to the Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup Final, wearing a visor and vowing he'd wear one for the rest of his career.
That Ian Laperriere hasn't played another...
Eric Lindros will participate in the Philadelphia Flyers alumni game against the New York Rangers during Winter Classic weekend.
The eye injury suffered by Chris Pronger last night was one of the scariest things I have ever seen. Even veteran hockey people in the pressbox -- who have seen and/or suffered some grisly injuries in their time -- were horrified by the thought of any worst-case scenario.
Thank heavens, the early prognosis is about as good as can be expected under the circumstances. Pronger'...
