Lindros gets evaluated based on what he did during his hockey career, just like any other hockey player. Young men don't always make the best decisions but hockey is a young man's game. You have to grow up fast.

Also, I'm not aware that an older and wiser Lindros has ever said he handled the situation poorly, or he wishes he had done it better, or acknowledged and apologized for his actions. (If I'm wrong about this, I'd like to know.) If he still stands behind his actions at age 38 then why shouldn't we hold him responsible for them?

Of course if you don't think he did anything wrong this line of argument doesn't apply, I'm addressing the "he was only 18!" argument.
