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.

Lindros ready for Classic return to Philadelphia

Eric Lindros is ready to return to Philadelphia.
