This week on Faceoff with Chris, the debate on whether or not Eric Lindros is worthy enough to be in the Hall of Fame. Chris and guest-host Jason Miller discuss the chances of Claude Giroux making team Canada’s Olympic roster because of Steven Stamkos’ unfortunate injury. Was Giroux’s early struggles due to Olympic pressure?
Next, Chris and JMill talk about the recent Flyers turnaround and if they’ve finally turned the corner. How good is Steven Mason and can he be a constant force between the pipes for a consistent period of time?
The Phillies are in burning-hot-stove rumors to acquire Toronto Blue Jays’ slugger Jose Bautista in exchange for Dominic Brown and other pieces. How do we view this rumor, and if the trade does go through, how will Joey Bats fit in this lineup? What about the Marlon Byrd signing? Is Amaro crazy for giving a soon-to-be 36-year-old $16 million?
