Unfortunately I would too...but I definitely wouldn't get his jersey. Lemieux was also a man of questionable character, so I'd deal with it.

Plenty of NHL players who won championships were ********. Tom Barrasso, Eddie Belfour, and hey, Corey Perry all have their names on the Cup. Patrick Kane, Mike Richards, and Jeff Carter are little more than glorified frat boys off the ice, yet all three of them won rings too.

I think a deficit in character only comes into play when the player in question does little to contribute and much to disrupt...much like what we're seeing in Buffalo with Kaleta and certain players voicing their opinions that they're fine with him continuing to sit on account of his antics.
