    Yeah, its stinks so bad lol.

    And there are -- obviously -- so many layers to this. I am a huge Karlsson fan and have always loved him, and it doesn't necessarily have to include him that much, but I still want to point out what nobody else dears to say and that is that it takes two to tango. One nut case don't create this mess alone. What do I know, maybe Hoffaman's GF is a complete maniac and decided to go to extreme lengths to cyber terrorize Melinda Karlsson, who knows. Don't think its extremely likely that she does it for zero reasons though. Needless to say there is not even remotely an "excuse" for her to write what she have written or do anything of it, but just saying that it takes two to tango. Further, there are -- zero reason -- whatsoever to go to court with this, other than to destroy Hoffman and or his girl friend. What the ****. You have passed the threshold for what should be dealt in-house by like a zillion miles lol.

    I don't even think both Hoffaman and his GF being complete nuts alone creates this mess either, it takes more than those two...

    This was just posted an hour ago.

    Hoffman's value just went WAY down the toilet.... The entire team appears to be not shocked at all, and apparently this girl Monika is a real *****...

    I'm kind of late to the party but I must say Ovechkin should win the Stanley Cup every year until he retires just based on his celebration tour.

    So, apparently today is the (un)happy anniversary of you know what. Thanks, NHL, for reminding me. :(

    Yeah, the only reason to state something else is if you want to ambush someone trying to look good saying political correct things that are easy to interpret.

    Karlsson just requested a trade. There are more layers to this. Nobody is so dumb that they are blaming Melinda K for someone going psychopath on her like you and Edge are trying to do.

    But some of the layers:
    -Why has this not been dealt internally?

    -Why is that girl still Hoffman's girl friend?

    -Has EK been in contact with the Sens brass and how have they tried to solve it? Or have they dropped the ball forcing EK and MK to act?

    And so forth and so forth.

    The NHL is involved and have launched an investigation of this matter (Erik Karlsson's wife files protection order against teammate Mike Hoffman's girlfriend | CBC Sports). Its a PR nightmare.

    There will be ripple effects and it will expand beyond the g/f. For example, how can you expect Hoffman and Karlsson to co-exist in the same lockerroom after this? Hoffman was obviously blindsided by this. I would bet that the Karlsson are far from friends with Hoffman. EK's wife just delivered a huge blow to the franchise her husband is captain of. Its not her fault that she was exposed to this, but the decision to go public with it isn't a given. Was Ottawa given an opportunity to act and if they didn't, why the heck didn't they solve it? If they weren't, what does that tell you about the relationship between EK and Ottawa.

    If this was only about a pyshopat g/f the story could be dead by now. But I just doubt that, I don't think it stops there. I would be very surprised if EK and Hoffman can be on the same team next season. And so forth. But I guess we will see.

    I definitely think this could have an impact on the likeliness of Hoffman and or Erik Karlsson playing for the Sens next season. I think it could have an impact on the different pieces trade value. And so forth.

    The animosity is bound to spread outside g/f and MK.

    Those are stripper names. I assume the rest of the WAGs are named Crystal, Jade, Candy, Tiffany and Skye :laugh:

    I call bull****

    If this, as had been reported, been going on for a year, the Senators and the NHL knew full well about it.

    The fact that it became public tells me that the team and league could not do enough on their own that the PROPER authorities were brought in.

    And rightfully so.

    in this situation, I say with complete comfortability

    SCREW THE SENATORS

    SCREW THE NHL.

    Women are catty beyotches. I know this because I am one. I can't stand most other women and just tolerate them because I have to. If they happen to be jealous of you for some unknown reason, look out. They will scheme and plot against you and strike when you least expect it. Hoffman's gf sounds like one of those women.

    Yeah, that image reads like someone's grandma wrote the caption, but it was the easiest thing to grab off reddit.

    I voted on Caps, but what a run by Vegas in their first NHL season! :)
    I believe it will be difficult for them to follow that up that table position next season, and overall great playoffs performance.

    Who ends up coaching the Islanders? Part of me hopes for AV, but he'd probably go there and win 3 cups back to back to back.

    No way... if AV coaches that team, their goals against will go up like 30% from last year just because of the lack of defensive structure.

    But they'll still continue to score 4-6 goals/game

    If AV goes to the Island, and JT stays, they probably score like crazy and make a couple deep runs the first few years, before he's able to remake the team in his mold, after which everything goes to ****.

    I was surprised their ppg numbers are almost identical.

    In my mind, Gal seems like he'd be noticeably higher.
