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 changed since the former number 88 last played hockey in the city of Philadelphia. A feud with the franchise followed numerous concussions, and when Lindros was traded to the New York Rangers in 2001, there was no love lost between the player and the team. The Alumni Game is part of the Winter Classic between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers and will take place on December 31 at Citizens Bank Park. The actual Winter Classic will be played in the same building on January 2, and ticket sales are not available to the public. Josh Verlin is the lead columnist for BuzzOnBroad.com.
