My personal hatred of Lindros aside, he needs to realize exactly what you just said “life is a whole lot bigger than hockey”. If Pat Lafontaine can walk away from what could have been one of those historical careers in the making then Lindros can walk away as well. People will respect him much more for being intelligent enough to make this decision than they will for him sticking it out.
He has a choice, think about his health and his family or come back and most certainly end up eating applesauce with Muhammad Ali the rest of his life.]]>
