- Eric Lindros joined the free-agent market on Wednesday when the New York Rangers declined to pick up the $10.25 million option in the oft-injured center's contract.
When the hockey shopping season opens Thursday, the 31-year-old Lindros will be free to sign with any club. It is unlikely that Lindros will return to the Rangers, with whom he played the past three seasons after being traded by Philadelphia.
Clubs had until midnight EDT Wednesday to make qualifying offers to restricted free agents to keep their rights and prevent them from becoming unrestricted. Normally players need to be 31 before becoming unrestricted, but any not given qualifying offers are free to sign anywhere.
Eric Lindros should retire-he can not ever be the player he first came into the league as and that he is the only way he can be effective-nasty

That was a "High" blow if you know what I mean about Lindros.
He definitely should join his brother in retirement though.
You know that some team with financial resources will be looking to sign him- the owners complain about finances
but then they can not help themselves!
NHH is in a tough situation-they do not have revenue that can come in from television and marketing like baseball or football to support the teams
They expanded or relocated to cities that I really have to question like Carolina. It really looks like the owners are serious this time-hopefully thay will work out a compromise-I need my hockey fix come October thru May-lately April being a Ranger fan!
