I don't expect you to like Eric Lindros. It is not the easiest thing to do. He dug his own hole, taking unpopular stances about dictating where he was going to play. He's guarded, moody, abrupt and has no visibly likable personality, and he pissed off a lot of fans and a lot of hockey people along the way.
But I did like Eric Lindros. And, given the watered-down Hall of Fame we deal with in reality, he does belong in the Hockey Hall of Fame. I explain it all in my latest player profile as I feature "The Big E," Eric Lindros.
And just for kicks I've also added oft-injured linemates John LeClair and Mikael Renberg.
