REPORT: QUEBEC NORDIQUES TURNED DOWN 5 BLOCKBUSTER TRADES FOR ERIC LINDROS - THAT LOOK INSANE TODAY

SEP 30, 2022  (11H02)      RYAN
Eric Lindros was supposed to be the next league superstar, and while he was playing, he was one of the most dominant players in the game, but unfortunately that was not for the team that drafted him.

In his draft year, he told the Nordiques that he would not play for them if they drafted him with the first overall pick, but instead they called his bluff and drafted him anyways.

A year later they decided to finally trade him after refusing to play, and here are 5 other offers that were on the table for Eric Lindros:

NEW YORK RANGERS:
Alex Kovalev
Tony Amonte
Sergei Nemchinov
James Patrick
John Vanbiesbrouck or Mike Richter
(multiple first round picks)
$20 million

CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS
Ed Belfour
Steve Larmer
Steve Smith
(a 2 for 3 swap of undisclosed draft picks)

TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS
Felix Potvin
Wendel Clark
Dave Ellett
Craig Berube
(multiple first round picks)
$15 million

CALGARY FLAMES:
Mike Vernon
The choice of Al McInnis or Gary Suter
The choice of Joe Nieuwendyk or Robert Reichel

DETROIT RED WINGS
Sergei Federov
Nicklas Lidstrom
Steve Chiasson
Martin Lapointe
Tim Cheveldae
(undisclosed draft picks)

Some of these trades are mind boggling and some teams are probably thanking the lord they did not complete them, cough cough Detroit.
