OR, because he thought D Heatley should have received 4 mins for elbow to face/head? Sid talked with 1 ref nothing heated & then went to the other one & that is the one who called the penalty. shocking that the pens announcers had no clue what happen.

Stoosh wrote:The Lindros trade broke down as follows (thanks, TSN)...
QUE received - Ron Hextall, Peter Forsberg, Steve Duchesne, Kerry Huffman, Mike Ricci, Chris Simon, PHI's 1st-round pick in 1993 (Stephane Fiset) and PHI's 1st-round pick in 1994 (which was later traded to TOR and then to WSH) and cash.
PHI received - Eric Lindros
Six players, two picks and cash for one player. Netwolf is right...no way that type of deal happens again in the cap era unless the majority of those players are prospects.
Something else to think about, too. The Lindros deal certainly helped set up the QUE/COL franchise for the Cup, but they won that Cup four years after they made the Lindros deal. It didn't happen overnight and some might argue that it wouldn't have happened at all had Mario Tremblay just pulled Roy after the first period of that infamous Canadiens-Red Wings game in 1995. Consider this...barring another trade for a goalie, the Avs tie their playoff hopes that year to either Stephane Fiset or...Jocelyn Thibault.
