Lindros: Flyers GM asked me to make comeback in 2012

Recommended Posts


It turns out Eric Lindros may have had the chance to prolong his Hall of Fame career after several years away from the game.


"The Big E" spoke to reporters in Toronto on Friday following the ring ceremony as part of the Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Weekend, where he explained that in 2012, former Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren asked if he was willing to come out of retirement.



By 2012, Lindros was already been out of the NHL for five years - he retired after the 2006-07 season - but what a sight that comeback would've been.

I don't think it would have been a good sight at all.


With his concussion related issues, that sight could have been of him motionless on the ice. Good call on his part.

Agreed. It's almost a shame that Holmgren would actually considering endangering Lindros further.
