When is a trade a trade? The Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers will find out this week. So will Eric Lindros.

An NHL arbitrator will answer that question following an historic hearing with the Flyers, Rangers and Quebec Nordiques. The hearing to determine whether the Flyers or Rangers made a valid deal for Lindros with the Nordiques began Monday night.The double-dealing happened on Saturday in the midst of the NHL draft. The Flyers claimed they had made a verbal deal with the Nordiques, who then turned around and made a deal with the Rangers.

Specifics of either trade were not available.
