Lindros to appear in the Winter Classic Alumni Game?

4 Comments

Joe linked to this morning, but if you missed it, here’s an interview former NHL star Eric Lindros did with thehockeywriters.com.

Some bullet points for the reading averse:

—- Lindros currently works for a company in Ontario that specializes in “online and mobile learning.” After a controversial stint with the NHLPA, it’s no surprise he’s not working in hockey anymore.

—- When asked how all the injuries (see: above) affected his play later in his career, Lindros replied quite candidly, “I had a real tough time mentally cutting across the ice. Yeah, it just wasn’t the same.”

—- Lindros confirmed he’s spoken with Flyers GM Paul Holmgren about appearing in the 2012 Winter Classic Alumni game at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. “That’d be great if I could see Mikael Renberg again, and Johnny LeClair. I haven’t seen Johnny in a couple of years.”

—- You get the feeling he remains rather disenfranchised with the business of hockey. “I still get out on the ice with a bunch of guys a couple of times a week and we have a tremendous amount of fun with the purity of the game.”
