Eric Lindros, yes or no?
It is a simple question without a simple answer.

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,
If you want to get Eric Lindros wound up, ask him about the NHL lockout, which has not-so-quietly extended into a third month — with no negotiations scheduled and no real end in sight.
The retired NHLer and former NHLPA ombudsman wasn’t overly optimistic when asked to give his opinion during a break in the action at the Mike Keane...
Last night, the city held the 2012 Philadelphia Sports Hall Of Fame Ceremony. The ceremony had some of the city's top athletes, including Flyer great Eric Lindros. Our friends from SportsTalk Philadelphia on La Salle TV and David Grzybowski had the privilege at being at such a huge event.
