On Saturday night, reports started to surface that the Stars were to the dotting the eyes and crossing the tees part of a contract with Eric Lindros.
Lindros, who has a long history of concussions, missed more than half the 2006 season due to a broken wrist. He scored 22 points (11/11) in 33 games with the Leafs.
Early Sunday morning, the Dallas Stars website posted that they had come to terms on a one-year contract with the 33-year old, but it was removed after a couple of hours. Now the team says that no deal has been reached.
Does this Dallas two-step sound familiar? It should.
They're saying "within the next 24 hours". Meanwhile, fans in Edmonton are excited. They still have a chance at him.
UPDATE The Stars and Lindros have come to a one-year agreement. No details about the pay yet.
