    The board insiders were right.

    I am now questioning my lifestyle choice of not having 2PM dinners.

    This team is the biggest joke in pro-sports.

    This team needs leadership

    So that's why we're trading Hoffman.

    Good lord... Got to wonder what sent Hoffman's GF off the deep end, even crazy people don't usually go this fair just for kicks...

    And yet again, just when we all thought the team couldn't possibly become more of a joke, we one up ourselves again.

    What a shameful display from Hoffman's GF, and Hoffman by sticking by her.

    I miss the good old days when the biggest scandal was Heatley's reduced role...

    Penny-pinching on the face of the franchise not once, but twice.

    Selling draft picks for cash.

    Frequently embarrassing comments from the owner.

    Continued unprofessionalism (i.e., calling out Dave Cameron publicly.)

    All of these, I could grin and bear. Poor decisions and frustrating as a fan, but nothing crossing a line.

    But now?

    An owner publicly supporting Bill O'Reilly, a confirmed sexual assaulter.

    An assistant GM on trial for alleged misconduct and an organization that seems fine ignoring it.

    A seemingly headlong dash to trade arguably the best player we've had for pennies on the dollar.

    And now, a culture in the organization that's SO TOXIC that a core player's wife is threatening a woman who lost her child?

    Nope. No way. Can't do this. I'm out for the foreseeable future. What kind of sick ****ing joke.

    Off-season really couldn't be going any better.

    And there were some posters, not naming names, who literally looked down on those who expressed concern with the team.

    It's even worse than we thought it was. This place is a cesspool at every conceivable level.

    Figured this would become public, as more and more people seemed to be aware of it. Once I heard this I knew one or both of them would be gone this summer. Hopefully it's just Hoffman out the door.

    I genuinely felt so bad when I posted that on here. It's something personal and not hockey. I definitely feel less bad now that my source wasn't trolling me. But damn, Hoffman's girlfriend, that is so so low. I don't care how much you dislike someone, that is like wayyyy too far.

    Side note, this affects Hoffmans trade value. Bad.

    No kidding. And this isn't even necessarily a direct tie to the organization. It's a bat**** psychopath unleashing her fury. Could've happened to anyone. But because it happened the way it did, the level of toxicity has reached critical mass. No amount of buckets in the world will bail this dinghy out from the sheer monsoon of hits it's been taking.

    Embarrassing but pretty easy solution...Turf the girlfriend. Especially of Hoffman was unaware of her doing this.

    Props to the people who knew this first. Sounded too bad to be true, but I shouldn't put anything past the organization these days.

    Things have definitely gone from bad to worse.
