    I know he wasn’t alone but it doesn’t excuse the action of going up to a car that is occupied by a female security officer and jiggling the handle to see how she reacts.

    Crap like that is unacceptable.

    He'll get away with it because he's a Leaf, like Morgan Reilly's f-word last year and the blatantly stupid "I was saying Rag it" excuse.

    But also I don't think the league cares about this type of stuff in general. Patty Kane never faced any discipline for any of the allegations on him, did he?

    What he did was stupid, but what is the league really going to do? I see people walking around all the time with underwear almost completely exposed and that's during the day and sober...

    I think it is more to do with the threat of what they might do. If your daughter happened to be in a vehicle when a group of young, drunken men approached, tried the locked door to rattle her, maybe you would see it differently? I know that I would be afraid if it was me. As long as he gets the same treatment as anyone else, then let the legal system deal with it. I think he will get off because he is a pro athlete but I can't imagine the penalty would be much either way.

    what if this was Marchand doing this? The hockey world would universally condemn it. Its all about who you are

    I get that, but I also don't think I'd recommend my daughter be a security guard, as you're bound to run into idiots, be it drunk people or domestic situations.

    He clearly didn't use good judgment, I just don't think this is much of a crime, if it is in fact one - so I'm not expecting the league to do anything about it.

    The security guard identified herself as a former servicewomen with PTSD. His reaction was to pull his pants down. It's not a huge deal really, but it shows a lack of maturity and really the situation could've ended a lot worse for Matthews.

    I have no idea why Tavares wasnt made captain last summer, but he really seems like the only logical choice now.

    Tronna fans will somehow find a way to blame DeBrusk, Marchand or (now that he's in a different sweater) Kadri.

    Mathews , forget the charges deal with the mustache.

    I had one like that for 8th grade, yea you have dark hair, it's not enough.

    Shave it, wait, move on, try again ... for now at best it looks like a young Freddie Mercury.

    Theres doing stupid stuff while young and then there’s going up to a car with a woman inside and jiggling the door handles to see how she’d react just for fun.

    What he did was disgusting and goes well beyond stupid.

    What are the odds of a bad team catching lightning in a bottle two years in a row?

    There was a hot dog to go with it but someone resembling Phil Kessel was spotted jogging out of the arena with them
