In Topic: slava voynov suspended after domestic violence arrest

... Or are you saying that the NHL is acting to harsh with Voynov?

 

If you worked with the NHL, what would you do?

 

Personally I feel that when these types of accusations happen, it puts the NHL in a very tough situation. If I were Bettman, I wouldn't want to make judgements myself, I feel situations like this need to be assessed by people who see these things every day (ie. law enforcement, court system). When you try to become judge, jury, and executioner you will end up in a Goodell situation. I would likely link my disciplinary process to what the law enforcement/court system decide.

 

So for example, if law enforcement decided not to press charges, I would let him play. You wouldn't want to run into a situation where if someone was falsely accused and the police deemed this, the NHL still suspends. But, if the system deems there is enough evidence to go to court, I would indefinitely suspend him.

this.

NHL distanced themselves from the Varlamov's case and waited for court decision. Voynov was suspended without hesitation even before he was officially charged.

... Over an 11 year time period you can expect the disciplinary process of any league to change.

 

If the Heatley incident happened last year, maybe you could compare the two (though I still feel they are way too different). A completely differant incident 11 years ago, you really cant compare the two.

Let's compare Varlamov then :)

That's kind of the point I was trying to make--there have been some comparisons in this thread like "well, Heatley didn't get xyz punishment so why should Voynov?" Heatley's punishment is irrelevant, and should have absolutely no bearing on Voynov's punishment. The two offenses are unrelated, and just because some here dont think Heatley got punished enough that should have nothing to do with Voynov not getting an appropriate punishment if gound guilty.

 

you are missing a point. it doesn't matter what somebody think about heatley punishment.

the big question here is why NHL and public jumped on decision about Voynov's guilt even before he was charged with anything. And they allowed Heatley play as soon as he got ready even he has been charged with manslaughter...

If he's convicted.
And there's programs for first timers.
He's only 24, I doubt hell get prison time unless theytry to make an example of him.

they made example out of Dany heatley. Just look at his sentense. Why would Voynov's would be much different?

If he is convicted from everything I've read there's a good chance he just gets deported. Meaning his NHL days are over.

 

Animals aren't human dogs aren't getting a second chance after they've bitten someone so why should another animal...

 

Did Dany Heatly get deported / get a second chance? Why would/wouldn't Voynov then?

Give me one reason that would apply to Voynov case, but won't to Heatley's.
