The End Of The Eric Lindros Trade Chain

Not only can we put an end to the “Is Eric Lindros A Hall of Famer?” argument, we can also close the book on the blockbuster trade that sent him from the Quebec Nordiques to the Philadelphia Flyers before his career even began. 

After being passed over six times, Eric Lindros, who scored 372 goals and 493 assists over 760 NHL games, was finally inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame this week. Interestingly enough, on the day he was inducted, the Colorado Avalanche also didn’t offer defenceman Brandon Gormley a qualifying offer, making him a free agent, and officially putting to bed a string of players acquired by the Avs that began when the franchise, back when they were still in Quebec City, drafted Lindros first overall in 1991.

Over the past month, we at NHLnumbers have been analyzing each team's roster and current cap outlook heading into the 2016 offseason, trying to paint a picture of what the team's summer is going to look like in order for them to achieve their short- and long-term goals.

Because It's The Cap: Washington Capitals

The Washington Capitals enjoyed arguably their best regular season in franchise history last year. Key word, though, regular. The Caps were eliminated in the second round of the playoffs by the Pittsburgh Penguins, well shy of their ultimate goal of winning their first-ever Stanley Cup, making it difficult to call 2015-16 a success. 

The easy thing to do here is to point fingers, yell and scream, and say that the team totally messed up, or that they couldn't get the job done. But sometimes, you’re a damn good team that plays well, and you just don’t come out on top because the other team is also damn good, they also played damn well, and, you know, things happen.

Thankfully for the Caps, their window didn’t slam shut after they were dropped by the Penguins. They're going to get another go at the prize with this group again next year, but after that? That’s anybody’s guess.
