40 Eric Lindros Quotes About Hockey & Success

1. “I wasn’t playing the way that I had in the past, I just felt extremely conscious about going through the middle of the ice and getting whacked again. It hindered things. I wasn’t nearly as effective. There was a good chunk of time there where I felt frustrated. It wasn’t a lot of fun.” – Eric Lindros

2. “I don’t think you can run around and crash and bang quite the way that I might have done in the past.” – Eric Lindros

3. “I look forward to proving something to myself and others.” – Eric Lindros

4. “My thought would be putting the red line back in would alleviate a lot of this. Possibly widening the ice 5 feet on either side would be a pretty good idea, too. You’re only looking at a row or two of seats. I’m sure you can talk about money loss here and there and the balance of salaries to the gross intake of teams, but you can displace that.” – Eric Lindros

5. “I remember being in Pittsburgh thinking that I was traded in the showers because I thought that we were playing at home, and these were not the showers we had at the First Union Center.” – Eric Lindros

6. “It’s a little dusty, … It’s about time. This is great. I’m really excited about it. It’s a dream come true.” – Eric Lindros

7. “People on the streets are ready for hockey.” – Eric Lindros

8. “What’s best is having two points, … We have played some good hockey clubs in the first four games. So we’re just happy about the win. We got some great goaltending and we’re fortunate.” – Eric Lindros

10th of 40 Eric Lindros Quotes

10. “It’s definitely something we have to work on. Sometimes our entries into the zone are pretty good but the puck movement isn’t. At other times we just have problems getting it in there.” – Eric Lindros


11. “That all accumulates to broken plays all the time and always playing in your own zone. Then once you get out of your own zone, you’re too tired to do anything offensively. Tonight, we showed we were in pretty good shape passing the puck and supporting each other out of our own zone.” – Eric Lindros

12. “It’s great. It’s wonderful. It’s hockey.” – Eric Lindros

13. “We just weren’t there [in 1997]. Game 1 was pretty close. Game 2 I thought we could have won. We got smoked in Game 3. And Game 4 was a pretty good game, but I think after McCarty scored that was kind of late. We were down a goal and that kind of did it in the third with about 4 minutes left. I thought if we had won Game 2 we really had a shot at it.” – Eric Lindros

14. “Could you imagine if Mikael Renberg and John LeClair were to join Lindros? They were affectionately known as the “Legion of Doom” line in the ’90s. According to team sources, it’s definitely a possibility for the Winter Classic Alumni Game.” – Eric Lindros

15. “Right now I’m happy to be on the ice anywhere, anytime.” – Eric Lindros

16. “I have a lot of respect for Eric as a player because my job was to shut down top players, and he was a unique player in that era.” – Eric Lindros

18. “I’ve been through this a few times. So I’m not going to fire one out. When it’s ready, it’ll be ready.” – Eric Lindros

19. “Nobody knew if and when we’d ever see Eric at an event with the Flyers organization in the future. Lindros was a terrific leader for the Flyers for a good part of the ’90s and deserves to be a big part of the team’s history.” – Eric Lindros


20th of 40 Eric Lindros Quotes

20. “To clarify, I believe clean body contact should have a place in the upper aged tiers and professional hockey. There is an importance for non-contact leagues including youth teams and non-pro.” – Eric Lindros


21. “I love Roger! Roger was really good. Roger was a teacher at heart. He had his ways. Some players disagreed with the way that he did his X’s and O’s, and the way that he ran a bench, but you know when you have 22 guys on a roster there’s always going to be a different mindset from player to player.” – Eric Lindros

22. “You have to dream dreams to live dreams.” – Eric Lindros

23. “We didn’t give them what they wanted.” – Eric Lindros

25. “Dr. Fowler was fantastic. He was a wonderful person to bounce ideas off of or have questions for. He had a great team down there that really took great care of me when I played, and in many ways, I felt that it was a thank you to Dr. Fowler and the work that he did.” – Eric Lindros

26. “I love it, … It makes for exciting hockey.” – Eric Lindros

28. “we had a lot of good players on that [2000] team. We had a lot of depth with that club and a number of real good players. I think losing in general sucks, I don’t care what game it was.” – Eric Lindros

29. “I don’t know what lies in the future and I don’t care to think about it but I don’t foresee anything. But I also took a lot more time generally speaking than others.” – Eric Lindros


30th of 40 Eric Lindros Quotes

37. “Guys used to take care of things themselves. I think there was a little more respect. I think the respect level has diminished greatly. I used to think strongly back when I played that there was a place for [the instigator rule], but I’ve softened on that.” – Eric Lindros

38. “So many great memories about what it is. Even now, I look forward to skating with the guys on Tuesday. Thursday morning we have a really good skate too. No referees.” – Eric Lindros

39. “I thought we hung in there and got great goaltending again, … It wasn’t our most spectacular (win), but generally a good effort.” – Eric Lindros

40. “There’s no communication I don’t think we’ll be playing this season at all. The bottom line for both sides is nobody should be worrying about public perception right now or who is right and who is wrong in all of this. They should be putting their energy into trying to get a deal done. It’s not going to matter who is winning the battle for public opinion if we don’t get a deal done. I just don’t think there’s much reason for optimism with nothing happening right now. We offered them the 24 percent (salary) rollback and I thought that was a very good offer. They didn’t want it. We know that hockey is going to be back. But I can’t tell you when and in what form.” – Eric Lindros
