RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Eric Lindros.
Signed with the hope that he'll stay healthy enough to replace the minutes left when Jason Arnott departed via free agency. As is always the case with the Big E, his health will determine his productivity.
Big E is a big risk, no doubt about it. He's another injury waiting to happen as he still cuts toward center with his head down but he fulfilled a lifelong dream when he signed to play for his hometown Leafs. It remains to be seen whether he'll line up at center or on the wing, but we think he's going to pour on the points no matter where he slots in. He's got a one-year contract and wants to prove himself worthy of more time in blue and white. Snake eyes or lucky seven; only you can decide. We're kind of leaning toward the latter.
