    More likely to be on Montreal and Edmonton, now Ottawa with this.

    Makes one glad we have Aquaman as the owner vs the Crappy Tire guy. There's probably one or two (or more) other pretty sad situations in the NHL.

    The arena is named for Canadian Tire, but I don't think Melnyk has any affiliation with the company.

    No doubt some team will still trade for Hoffman. There’s supposedly a number of teams interested in signing Slava Voynov FFS.

    Outside of being a terrible person, I haven't heard anyone complain about Voynov as a teammate.

    Hoffman is truly the ultimate locker room cancer, I can't imagine any rational GM looking at that and thinking 'it's worth a shot'

    Do we know that we was talking about Pheonix? Boston traded him in the off season as well.

    This stuff got to me as well. Really reminiscent of Stephen Peat.

    your takeaway is not that NHL teams don't do enough to help players who are struggling with the effects of what the game does to them?

    How about ......violent sports take a tremendous toll that has been ignored by everybody - fans, sportswriters, teams, leagues - until recently.

    i guess we don't know which team, actually.

    two pieces of information that give conflicting clues:

    when boynton was traded from boston, boston was in the midst of a GM transition. mike o'connell was fired may 25, 2006. peter chiarelli was hired may 26, 2006 but was "forced to wait until July to begin his active duties because Ottawa filied a grievance with the NHL." boynton was traded june 26, 2006. so it's unlikely that a team with no GM could have made that trade.

    on the other hand, the coyotes have employed boynton post-career. this is from a couple of years ago: "I’ve met with Nick several times and he knows he made a terrible mistake," said Anthony LeBlanc, the Coyotes’ co-owner, president and CEO. "Nick is a good person and everyone deserves a second chance. He recently completed his alcohol counselling program and will now be reinstated as our radio colour analyst." although it probably also needs to be said that that 2015 group that employed boynton is almost certainly not the same one that traded him in 2008.

    ouch, yeah i just read a little further. the only evidence in the public domain seems to be an unserved peace bond application making some allegations and some oath helping tweets by wags.

    i certainly hope the karlssons are using a good lawyer going down this path and have a smoking gun. it could backfire pretty badly on them if they cannot prove this.

    If that's the timeline, the trade would have been made by Jeff Gorton, who was acting GM between O'Connell and Chiarelli (and put a lot of pieces of the Bruins championship team into place).

    Good to see more players speaking out about this.

    I really suggest reading Ken Dryden's Game Change: The Life and Death of Steve Montador and the Future of Hockey

    Hmm has Travis Yost uncovered a colangelo-esque burner account in Ottawa?

    edit: I won't put the link here because the forum makes it gigantic. It's from this tweet:

    Sounds a lot like a certain HFCanucks poster and his multiple banned accounts (i'm looking at you weisbrod)

    Great stuff. But that could never be happening here, of course. :skeptic:

    I think the big difference is that the colangelo accounts/sens gadfly actually seem knowledgeable. The weirdos on this forum don't have any coherent arguments, just their peasant-like devotion to vancouver's very own habsburg inbred Jim Benning.
