    I was wondering when Lindross played for the Jets.

    Lots of scrappers on that team. Lindros, Barnaby, Chris Simons, wow and all on the same line.

    Gotta give it to Barnaby man, the dude may have been so easy to hate but he was a tough motherfucker. He might not have won every fight but he doesn't back down and he could take as many hits as anyone could dish out.

  • Reply Paul Womack February 27, 2017 at 9:12 pm

    Still odd (after all of these years) seeing Lindros and Barnaby as teammates.

  • Reply FuckingYellow March 12, 2017 at 7:27 am

    On one hand I was cheering for the Boston player (Thornton)

    On the other hand I was cheering for the New York Player.

    But meh, Lindros got lucky. Sorta like Domi knocking out Kesler earlier this season.

    I don't think that Lindros in his prime would be able to get the better of Thornton in his. He's not just big and strong, he's also smart. Eric always seemed a bit dim, a bull-headed Aries, not as cunning and insightful as the wise sensitive Cancerian Joe.

    Bruins with the easy win on this one. This is when Messier was doing crack with Theo. Lindros was still feeling the effects from the hit that Scotty Stevens delivered. Thornton with some nice shots on Dizzyros.

  • Reply The Disco Stu January 30, 2018 at 3:27 am

    Barnaby was being a good teammate here because Gill was going to make it 2 on 1. Barnaby went into no-man's land.

  • Reply The Disco Stu January 30, 2018 at 3:28 am

    I have to give Poti a lot of credit. He was fully entitled to beat the crap out of Samsonov but he didn't.

  • Reply The Disco Stu January 30, 2018 at 3:30 am

    Chris Simon should have taken Gill instead of Barnaby but instead Simon gets there way too late and ends up grabbing the other defenseman and just watches, no heart at all unlike Barnaby

    I always hated Barnaby but he did help Lindros out from a second man jumping on him.

  • Reply shane270wby January 5, 2019 at 12:12 am

    This just shows how big and strong Lindros was. Joe is a big boy that even though is a skilled player, can handle himself. Lindros was game. Had he learned to keep his head up, the possibilities could’ve been limitless. He did bounce back feom this though and beat the shit out of Brian McCabe not too long after

    Bar none Lindros was the mostly deadly in his prime in terms of size and ability. He could score a goal, get an assist, and break the facebones of the other team. Best well rounded talent for size ever!

    Lindros with all that talent and size was neutralized by ego and concussions. What a shame, he had greatness written all over him!

  • Reply Derek Knight February 10, 2019 at 4:50 am

    Pretty disrespectful to fight a guy who just got over mutliple concussions and was traded from PHI to NYR. Special punch at the end, but harsh for a kid #1 overall with high potential to suddenly grasp in the end.

    I have a hard time as far as who’s side I’m on as I love and respect both Lindros and Thornton. Being 6’4” myself and playing a lot like they did (on a much lower level of course) I always root for the big guys. But at least Barnaby got his ass handed to him! That guy was always a prick!

    Don't you wish that Lindros was born 15 years or so later? What a waste. He was so good but so unlucky. Maybe better headgear, more advanced medical treatment, tighter officiating would have given him the chance to be all that he could be. Its as sad as it is fun to watch these old clips of Eric.
