Definitely the Devils. Bruce Driver and Shawn Chambers on your top pairings?

I don't mind that version of New Jersey's Devils, even if they're not the iconic April 2000 to June 2001 version.

Big#D wrote:your posts about lindros made some sense. there's always been debate about longevity vs. peak. i think a lot of people agree with you that lindros wasn't that deserving on praise because, despite his peak, he was able to sustain it. i'm not sure he'd make my top 100 if i made a list, but i'm not about to do so, so the point is moot.


I think you could poll a thousand hockey fans about Lindros and get a thousand different answers. In my mind, greatness deserves more recognition than consistency (or, in Lindros' case, durability). For six, maybe seven seasons Lindros was a top-five player in the game, and only decisively below Lemieux, Jagr, and Hasek in terms of performance. As little as four or five seasons as a top-five player is, in my books, better than twenty seasons of never being a top player like a Robitaille or a Francis or a Sundin.

I agree with this. I don't know exactly where he should rank in terms of all-time, but to me he's a definite Hall of Famer at the worst.
