Amid congratulations and handshakes from his teammates, Eric Lindros went through yesterday's morning skate wearing an impossible-to-miss grin. Perhaps more significant, the Flyers' captain took the smile with him to the dressing room, where he had been downcast and quiet for much of the season. "I'm just so happy this is over," Lindros said, unstrapping his shin guards. "Just real happy. " Lindros agreed to a one-year, $8.5 million contract extension late Wednesday and also received a $3.8 million signing bonus, which raised his pay this season to $7.5 million.

Eric Lindros scored the first goal in Team Canada's 6-3 Canada Cup victory over Team USA last night at Copps Coliseum, but it appears more likely than ever that the junior-hockey sensation will not play in the NHL this season. Instead, Lindros, the best player to come out of junior hockey since Mario Lemieux in 1984, probably will go back to the Ontario Junior Hockey League and play for the Oshawa Generals. Rick Curran, Lindros' agent, was quoted in the Toronto Star yesterday as saying, "Eric has one option, and that's to play another year of junior in Oshawa.

If you think Eric Lindros has created a stir in Quebec, you should see what he's done to hockey-crazed Toronto. The Toronto Sun, known almost as much for its Page 3 SUNshine pinup girl as for its hockey coverage, featured a picture on the front of Wednesday's paper that had Lindros' head superimposed on Wendel Clark's body. The photo showed what Lindros would look like in a Maple Leafs uniform, and it wasn't bad. Wednesday's SUNshine girl also got into the spirit. She wore a Lindros T- shirt and called herself his "No. 1 fan. " "We want Lindros," the Sun cried out in a big red headline on the top of Thursday's front page, and the paper offered readers a chance to vote on how far the Leafs should go in trading for the junior superstar.

AND NOW, the end is near. And so, Eric Lindros will face the final curtain - the one covering a bust of his head, of all body parts - tonight at center ice as he is inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame with linemate John LeClair. Before he laughs, shakes hands and offers a few brief words for an adoring and forgiving 19,537 faithful, it would only be fitting if Lindros stepped onto the ice with Frank Sinatra's recording of "My Way" pouring out of the Wells Fargo Center sound system.

Eric Lindros has turned into a business entrepreneur and is getting married in November. But the years that made him famous in Philadelphia - as one of the most gifted and rugged players in Flyers history - are why he is returning to the area next week. Lindros will be one of the inductees into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame on Nov. 8 at the Sheraton Society Hill. "It's a special thrill," Lindros, 39, said this week from Ontario. "It's definitely an honor, and I'm awfully proud to be going in with that company.

Quickly putting that ticket-price increase behind them, the Flyers yesterday extolled the virtues of a player they don't have and may never get. Daydreams are fun for everyone, and a lot cheaper than those $35 seats. The player in question was Eric Lindros, whose very name sends some NHL clubs into such a tizzy, they contemplate trading away their mothers, aunts and uncles, their arena and a few bridges to get him. The Flyers tried to hold a news conference to discuss their plans for the forthcoming NHL draft, but Eric Madness quickly broke out. Speculation around the NHL is that the Quebec Nordiques, who drafted the junior superstar with the No. 1 pick last year but have been unable to sign him, will trade Lindros before the June 20 draft or, at the latest, before training camp opens in September.

Flyers general manager Bob Clarke met with Eric Lindros' lawyer and with agent father Carl Lindros yesterday in Toronto, with no immediate resolution to the impasse over the playing rights to the former Flyers captain. "It was a very open and cordial meeting," said lawyer Gordon Kirke, who said the lines of communication between the parties will remain open. "I can't discuss the details of the meeting," he said. "We've been exploring possibilities with other teams and we will continue to do that.

Among the 82 games in the NHL's seemingly endless regular season, some stand out like road markers. They tell where a team is, and which direction it's heading. With the season winding down to 10 games, tonight's expected war in New Jersey against the Devils is one such marker. The Devils have unquestionably played the best hockey in the Eastern Conference since the all-star break (17-4-8) and appear destined for a rematch with the Flyers in the playoffs, much like two years ago. "With this few to go, each one is bigger than the one before, but this one has big implications," said Flyers winger Shjon Podein.

After spending a week rolling around on a giant, blue rubber ball, doing all sorts of abdominal work to strengthen his back and promote flexibility, center Eric Lindros is eager to do something else. Like play hockey. The Flyers' captain will return to the lineup today against the Boston Bruins. Joining him will be center Keith Primeau (fractured rib) and defenseman Ulf Samuelsson (injured left rotator cuff). All three practiced yesterday at Northeastern University. Lindros and Primeau both say they're not 100 percent but they're close enough to play.

It isn't clear exactly what Bill Dineen might have to do to keep Eric Lindros out of tonight's Spectrum game between the Flyers and the Penguins - hide the rookie star's skates, lock him in the training room, tie him up with adhesive tape and assign someone to sit on him - but whatever it takes, Dineen says he'll do it. Yesterday, Lindros practiced at full speed for the first time since injuring his left knee back on Nov. 22. Dineen, the Flyers'...

With their playoff hopes virtually gone, two areas of interest remain in the Flyers' sad-sack season: Where will they land in the draft, and will right winger Jake Voracek become the first player in franchise history to lead the league in scoring? If the Flyers remain in the No. 8 draft position, they would have a 6 percent chance of landing the top pick - widely regarded to be center Connor McDavid - in the draft lottery. Buffalo is in the No. 1 draft spot and would have a 20 percent chance if it stayed there.

CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS star Patrick Kane had surgery yesterday to repair a broken left collarbone, likely sidelining the dynamic winger for the rest of the season unless the team makes a deep run in the playoffs. Team physician Dr. Michael Terry and Dr. Bradley Merk performed the surgery, and Terry said a full recovery will take "approximately 12 weeks. " The Blackhawks placed Kane on long-term injured reserve earlier in the day and recalled forward Teuvo Teravainen from Rockford of the American Hockey League.

HOCKEY people know. Quietly, Eric Desjardins was inducted into the Flyers' Hall of Fame last night. Quietly, he was the most consistent player on the Flyers teams that terrorized the Eastern Conference for a decade. Quietly, he became the second-best defenseman in Flyers history. Mark Howe is the best. Howe is the essence of a hockey person, by bloodline and by trade. He was inducted into the Flyers' Hall in 2001; a decade later, he followed his father, Gordie, into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

ERIC DESJARDINS never liked to be the focal point of a conversation. He never wanted it to be about him. Desjardins is, after all, the only one of the 19 captains in the 48-year history of the Flyers to voluntarily remove the "C" from his jersey. Buried beneath his humble and even shy French-Canadian shell, there was a burning competitive edge that raged on quietly. Like, that one time Desjardins was fired up about a selfish comment goaltender Roman Cechmanek made in a newspaper one day during the 2000-01 season, when he was still captain.

DOWN ON the ice, the Flyers had begun another game in a painfully familiar pattern, pucks bouncing dangerously around their own crease, players scrambling helter-skelter just to push it across their own blue line, just to buy some temporary relief from the onslaught. Simultaneous to this, and perhaps symbolically, too, an announcement was made in the press box that general manager Ron Hextall and sidelined defenseman Kimmo Timonen would hold an impromptu news conference once the period ended.

Here in Philadelphia, we like our sports villains nasty, arrogant, demonstrative. It makes them easier to dislike. When Michael Irvin strutted out of a Texas Stadium tunnel, when Kobe Bryant promised to rip out the 76ers' hearts, when Scott Stevens went on a search-and-destroy mission in a conference finals' seventh game and found Eric Lindros, they touched something visceral, guttural, within every sports fan in this city. They did something, in its way, unforgivable. They won, and in winning, they knew, or at least acted as if they believed, that they were intrinsically better than Philadelphia and its teams and its people.

Jake Voracek and Claude Giroux could become the first Flyers duo to average at least a point per game since 1998-99, when Eric Lindros and John LeClair did it. Below are the projected numbers for Voracek (17 goals, 39 assists, 56 points) and Giroux (16 goals, 35 assists, 51 points) over 82 games, along with the stats for Lindros and LeClair in 1998-99:    G   A   Pts    Voracek   29   67   96    Giroux   27   60   87    Lindros   40   53   93    LeClair   43   47   90    - Sam Carchidi

Eric Lindros and John LeClair were inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame on Thursday, and during a stirring, 30-minute ceremony, both said the fans pushed their careers to a higher level. "You guys are awesome," LeClair told the standing fans before a banner with his name and his former linemate's was raised to the rafters. "You didn't accept losing. " LeClair, 45, then thanked the fans for "the continuous energy" they gave him. Lindros, 41, had a similar theme. "Night in and night out, you brought passion to the Wells Fargo Center," he said.

Eric Lindros still plays hockey from time to time. That's a nice thing to think of: Eric Lindros, playing hockey again. He doesn't have to be the marauding, seething supertrain he was during his early and prime years with the Flyers, before the concussions began. He just has to be out there on a rink somewhere, maybe on a frozen pond near his Toronto home, his body thicker, his hair thinner, just skating with a hockey stick in his hands. It's a satisfying image, and Thursday was a night for such thoughts.

MIKAEL RENBERG stepped onto the ice and the "Legion of Doom" was together once more for the first time since 1997. The thing is, Renberg wasn't planning on being in South Philadelphia last night. He received the Flyers' invitation for the Hall of Fame induction ceremony for linemates Eric Lindros and John LeClair and decided he couldn't make it. Like scores of other teammates and close friends, Renberg was busy. Living in his native Sweden, Renberg has two children, a job as a broadcaster on Swedish TV and is closing in on finishing a professional degree to become a physical therapist.
