He won't serve 90-days... if he does, it'll be min. security, house arrest or half-way house type situation I'm sure.
The probation and counseling are appropriate.
Thing that is a head scratcher for me. 8 hours of community service?
How skipping the 90 days of meaningless jailtime and give him 2160 hours of community service (90 days x 24 hours) that has to be served at a battered women's shelter.
Agreed. His time would probably be better served helping his community than locked in a cage. However the justice system is often more based on vengeance than rehabilitation, as exhibited by some of the knee jerk reactions here.
Babs is soon going to find out just how F** in the A he really is. If Kip is correct in his assessment that he's overrated, it will come out this year. He's always had high caliber teams whether it's the Wings or the Canadian national team. Now he has a team that is basically Phanuef, JVR and Lupul. He's F*****. I can almost guarantee that Shanahan does not do this the correct way. They've signed a bunch of mediocre players and acquired a a bunch of mediocre prospects.What's next? Be mediocre.
This is by far the worst UFA class in a while. Everyone's going to get overpaid. This is a year that most teams should be conservative with signings, but someone will take a chance. I'll be fine if that isn't us.
Imagine a Wings team loaded with cheap young talented players a few years down the road, but too hamstrung with Weiss and Green type contracts to make constructive additions and make a cup run.
You just don't get it. Because you're part of the PC police and also because you want hockey to become the same thing as women's soccer (which is significantly tougher than Men's soccer BTW). Admit it.
