    Default Voynov now? Probably not.

    If you want a current feed about how the sports world might feel about VV right now, here is a pretty good primer.

    An article that sticks it to those evil Russians and virtue-signals about domestic violence, instead of focusing on the fact that they just won the tournament? Oh wait it's Yahoo, nm

    Life is so confusing when you hit your partner and are never allowed to play in the US again but on the other hand celebrate a “legend” that molests his daughter.

    Not excusing Hardy, but comparing apples to oranges is always going to be a flawed mechanism for making a point.


    Those 2 incidents are really not comparable, once you read past the headlines. Also, honoring somebody for 5 minutes before a game is not comparable to bringing somebody back and paying him millions to play on your team every night. Also, don't cry for Slava, it's not like he had to go do his job in the ECHL.

    If Blake brings back Voynov, it better be a sign and trade. And I'm not even talking about outrage at him coming back, I'm talking outrage at their failure to fill the ****ing box and move on after 4 years.

    I say, ask around the League to find someone to trade him to.

    If there's interest, bring him back and trade him.

    We could use another 2nd-round pick.

    Fake News.

    Voynov never hit his wife, the TV hit his wife.

    Listen he could of easily just pled not guilty and won. The only witness that mattered, was his wife and she wasn't going to say a word. What he did is wrong, but it shouldn't reflect his job. He was employed and what he off the ice has nothing to do what he does on the ice.

    If I go out to a bar and smash a guys face on the bar counter, I should be able to have my job the next day. So why is it different for Voynov? NHL dropped the ball on him. We have convicted wife beaters and friend killers, and on ice paralyzing players assaulting one another and they all get to play. There are things on the ice happening worse than what Voynov did in private. How is Bertuzzi allowed to play after that assault that ended up paralyzing a player and ending his career and way of life. Come on folks. Varlamov beat his wife and so do a lot of players. Stop with Voynov being the only one. Either expel everyone, or no one.
