Lindros Signing soon to come...followed by Carter?

Eric Lindros is not a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs yet, but there are indications that it is closer to happening.
Sources tell TSN that Lindros is undergoing an MRI exam, and if everything goes to Toronto's liking, Lindros will sign a deal with the club.
The Columbus Blue Jackets, who were also interested in signing Lindros, are no longer in the running for his services. They reportedly offered Lindros a one-year deal for $1.5 million.
While the new CBA has a provision to exempt bonuses from the salary cap in some cases where a player has a long term injury, Lindros does not qualify.
The 32-year old Lindros has played 11 NHL season. His injury history has been well documented. He has had eight concussions throughout his career.
Despite the injuries, Lindros has scored 356 goals and 461 assists in 678 career games.

Also on the horizon is the potential signing of Anson Carter. He is currently going through a medical review. Maybe the leafs should open up a clinic or medical consulting!

And with the signing of Alexander Khavanov, look for the leafs to move one or two of their defencemen...maybe Klee, Berg, or Kaberle to make room for a Lindros signing.

Stay tuned!
