The Suspension Of Slava Voynov

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

If the NHL waits for the legal process to play out before lifting Slava Voynov’s indefinite suspension, he will almost certainly end up serving one of the longer bans in league history.

Consider: The Los Angeles Kings are scheduled to play 18 times before the defenceman is even due in court on Dec. 1 — and that could be just the beginning if domestic abuse charges are pursued against him in California. Some cases drag on for years.

Absent a quick legal resolution, the NHL is left in an unenviable spot. How can it fairly be expected to serve as judge, jury and executioner?
