Eric Lindros, the mere name brings a myriad of mixed reactions in Philadelphia.
Yet there is no denying the talent and excitement he brought to the Flyers, none bigger than in 1998, when he appeared on the debut cover of ESPN the Magazine alongside Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez as the “NEXT” generation of superstars.
ESPN the Magazine recently went back and talked to Lindros about his career, mostly focusing on his never-ending battle with concussions and the way head injuries are making people re-think professional sports.
The feature, titled “Not So Crazy Now, Am I?” by writer David Fleming, is a great read. Flyers fans — and all sports fans, really — should take some time out and give it a perusal.
