In my opinion, the sentence was short by about a factor of 10.

Its quite aggravating to read this stuff... I can't understand why laws haven't been stricter on these types of crimes.

What a joke, and another slap in the face to all of the victims. I'm embarrassed for Canada

Words cannot describe my utter disgust.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

I am glad that Theo is man enough to come forward and publically deal with this. Some men would not be strong enough to do so.

In fact, one wonders if there were more victims. It seems very few people who commit the same crime only abuse one or two victims, especially given the coach's situation.

I hope that 2 years doesn't set a precedent for the Sandusky case, which I believe is due to begin soon.

This is another example of why defence lawyers make the really big money.
I was watching CBC Newsworld yesterday and one of the "talking heads" erred in stating it was "Colin James".

I'm fairly certain it can't be used as a precedent since it happened in another countries legal system. Althoughthe inadvertant influence could happen.

So a child molester gets two years? Unbelievable.

Physically impossible, unfortunately. There are some things you can do to a person only once. Nonetheless, I am glad that he was found guilty, even if the sentence was a joke. An innocent verdict would have been intolerable.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

I'm still shocked that he only got two years. Two consecutive life sentences sounds better.
