Catch 22

Hawks should put him on the shelf until this is resolved

Innocent until proven guilty?

Yeah, stay classy Chicago

This case needs to be observed individualy of the voynov case. Each case is unique unto their own. The evidence was pretty discerning immediately after it unfolded regarding voynov. However there has not been enough evidence to indict Kane at this point. I am by no means defending kane, and believe his reputation precedes him. Also I am a prosecutor not a defense attorney, but I am reminded of a case that I studied regarding rape. A USC football player was accused of rape by a high school "friend", and sentenced to 15 years. 2 years later, while he was in prison she came clean that it was a bribe contrived by her mother. I'm not saying he is innocent, but we need to take our fan bias out of the equation until our justice system rules on the case. Is it perfect? No, however the system gets it right more than it gets it wrong. In this case there isn't enough evidence to send it straight to trial, so let's wait to judge the league until after.

Whoa guys, I never claimed there was a perfect system ok

I wasn't attacking you at all, and i apologize if it came off that way. I was just curious where you feel the direction our justice system should head. I 100% agree with you that our system is not perfect. I have thought, over countless glasses of bourbon, how I would change it if I had the power too.

And therein lies the problem with trials by jury

It is definitely not a perfect system, but what's the alternative use one "nuetral" arbitrators/judge? I can promise you that nuetral is a very loose term with outside arbitration. The problem doesn't lie within the system alone, but within human nature.

In Topic: Nyquist Files For Arbitration

The mistake many making here is assuming that this case even gets before an arbitrator.
Neither side wants that, no player wants to hear his employer explain all his shortcomings in an effort to cut his salary. Nyquist has excellent regular season production but he'd be roasted on his awful playoff numbers to this point. Still I think he'd get a better offer by going to arbitration than what I think he's going to sign before it gets there.
I expect him to take a deal in the 3.75 to 4.25 million range, similar to Kadri's but perhaps a little longer. 

You're exactly right. This has very little potential to make it to arbitration. I present cases periodically before outside arbitrators, and if people think divorce hearings get ugly employer arbitration is a whole different animal.
