Well, it looks like we can officially stop worrying about Eric Lindros being on Lowe's radar screen, as everyone's favourite big retarded lug just signed a one-year contract for $1.55-million with the Leafs. While that may be a relief for now, mind you, Lowe will have another crack at him next off-season, especially considering Peca's will almost certainly be gone. But still, for now, we've dodged a bullet.
And I know I talk a lot of smack about Lindros and the Leafs, but honestly, I think this is a good signing. Lindros is a prototypical Quinn player, and although he can't be anywhere near as physical as he once was, brings much-needed size to a fairly gangly forward squad. Plus, in the article Lindros sounds like he's the least gruntled he's been in years, so it'll be interesting to see how he performs on a team he actually likes and attaches some emotionality to. Because let's face it; even setting size aside, Lindros is an above-average talent. Whether or not he's still go it remains to be seen, I guess. But you can't argue with the price.
Also, Peter Weller.
