Not sure.  Weiss really didn't get too much ice time what with his injuries and all.  At least Richards is proven.  Weiss was when we got him, but the injuries killed that.  Hopefully Richards stays healthy.

 

(BTW, the Hot Wing thread has been gone for a while, hasn't it?)

 

The person below me has gone more than 2 days without internet and lived to tell about it.


In Topic: Voynov pleads "No Contest" to Domestic Violence Charge

They threatened her with contempt because she refused to follow the judge's orders and wouldn't cooperate with the investigation.  She's either legitimately afraid that Voynov would get to her even if she left him and took off, or she's just a gold digger who will put up with it as long as it means she has plenty of money and nice things.

It could be either of those.  Or it could be that she just wants to get on with her life and not be dragged through the media.  I'm sure that when she married a hockey player, she knew that he would be in the news, and that she might be too, but this is not the kind of press that most people want.  She may just want it to be done with. 

Since she's not a native English speaker, she may be worried that anything that she says may be misconstrued.  Words like "hit", "punch", "slug", and "beat" have similar meanings, but different nuances.  She might not have trusted herself to not make things worse than they were or she may have not trusted the officials questioning her to understand her correctly.  When you are being interrogated, you have to keep in mind that they are already assuming that there was a crime if, like in her case, she was not the one who reported it.

There are a lot of reasons she may not have wanted to talk.  We have the right to remain silent if we are the one investigated.  We are supposed to have the right not to incriminate a spouse. 

I don't care for him, but I feel really badly for her.

When you look at the fine etc. in light of what he has as a professional athlete, it seems like nothing.  Since it's a standard punishment, it's a one-size-fits-all kind of thing.  It would be a big deal to any of us.

 

Still frosts me that they go after the wife.  She deserves a get-out-of-jail-free card.  This is why women don't go to the cops.

I can go either way.  With family, it's soda.  With friends, it's pop, unless they say soda.

 

The person below me is now thirsty.
