    With today's advancement in flat screen TV's, Voynov's minor incident with the LCD panel would not be even considered a crime anymore.

    Boston Celtics guard Jabari Bird pleaded not guilty to domestic violence charges at Thursday’s arraignment in municipal court, where the alleged sordid details were revealed for the first time.

    Why was Jabari Bird arrested?
    A month after the former second-round pick signed his first full-time NBA contract with the Celtics, the 24-year-old was arrested Saturday in Boston’s Brighton neighborhood on charges of domestic assault, strangulation and kidnapping. The allegations revealed Thursday are no less harrowing.

    According to reports, Bird’s girlfriend says he detained her for four hours on Friday afternoon in their Brighton apartment. He allegedly repeatedly kicked her and strangled her roughly a dozen times, including once until she lost consciousness. She reportedly tried hiding under a bed and in a locked bathroom, and when she tried to escape the apartment, he allegedly dragged her back by the ankles.

    Bird’s girlfriend escaped when he eventually suffered “seizure-like symptoms” and passed out, according to the police report. She reportedly moved him to a bed and fled in a friend’s car. When Bird came to, he allegedly texted her and threatened to kill himself if she did not return to the apartment.

    What is the NBA’s domestic violence policy?
    The NBA’s new collective-bargaining agreement allows commissioner Adam Silver to place players on paid leave during domestic violence investigations. Pending a league investigation, Silver can also issue a suspension, even if a player is not found guilty. Such was the case when former Detroit Pistons center Willie Reed was suspended for six games following a domestic battery arrest last summer.

    The NBA requires violators of its domestic abuse policy to undergo counseling. This past May, the league and its players’ union also launched a mental health program to counsel players who are actively addressing issues such as anxiety and depression. Bird’s case could be an important and complicated one for a league that has sought to both take a firmer stance against domestic violence, and create a more open environment for players working through mental health issues.

    ^^ This is a LA Kings, not Sacramento Kings board.

    NHL, not NBA.

    Heh, yeah, keep fooling yourself.

    Maybe using a TV in the abuse makes it more serious?

    Not sure if I want Voynov back but other guys who get into domestic violence trouble get reinstated, so why not?

    Interestingly, Voynov had applied for reinstatement before the Kings signed Kovalchuk, and the two were teammates on St. Petersburg SKA, a fact that I'm sure wasn't lost on Rob Blake. Per CapFriendly, the Kings have about $2 million in cap space, but that includes projections for the entry level contracts for Iafallo, Rempal, Kempe and Brickley, as well as the third goalie's salary. Moving some players around might clear enough space to offer Voynov no more than maybe $1.5-$2 million, but even then its a long shot.
