Before he started to become ultra susceptible to injury, Lindros was one of the most promising and talented hockey players that the NHL has ever seen in its current era - pretty much the next Wayne Gretzky (there's a reason why the Flyers gave an arm and a leg to get him...and due to his injuries, it REALLY cost them). However, he remains one of my favorite players to have ever played the game.

Oh no, he's not exactly this amazing hero anymore (but considering how often he plays vs. how often he is injured, it's simply amazing that he still plays as well as he does). He also has to play more conservatively nowadays, which is a bummer, because you have this behemoth 6'5 power forward trying not to get hurt...and that doesn't even work; when Stevens gave him his bazillionth concussion, he was playing ultra-conservatively.

Anyway, about the Flyers, I am annoyed to no end about how often they end up choking in the playoffs. Even after they pretty much revamped the team last season, same old story.

Edit: About the Stars, when it comes to stick handling, Mike Modano has been the one player to consistently impress me. I've seen him go through lines of defensemen just by himself so many times...it's so impressive. I mean, this isn't where his goals usually come from, but to just see it happen is amazing. The Stars used to be amazing, five to ten years ago, when they had Belfour. Along with Brodeur, Roy, and Hasek, they made the four best goaltenders in the league at the time, completely on par with each other. He's sort of faded into oblivion, now, though. But he was great.

I'm just glad to see Hockey coming back...I was totally pissed the season they had the lockout. I suppose, geographically, I should be cheering for the Red Wings....but eh. Like every other sport I watch, I just wanna see a good game, no matter who is playing.
Yay for Hockey!!!
