You Decide

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

Nobody will ever convince me that criminalizing any and all minor ripple effects of someone’s physiological and/or psychological condition isn’t as barbaric and impractical as Canada’s court system gets.

The Lafleur family deserves our compassion, not any more punishment than their son’s poor choices have already delivered upon them.

They have been humiliated enough as it is, and the petty, spiteful charge Guy Lafleur faces today will do absolutely nothing to either end their misery or make the streets of Montreal safer.

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

That’s not good judgment on Guy’s part. His son is facing a laundry list of very serious charges including sexual assault of a 17-year old, uttering death threats, kidnapping, forcible confinement, drug possession (more than one count) and assorted acts of mayhem that police thought endangered people’s lives. It’s one thing if Marc Lafleur violated the terms of his bail, it’s something else again if his father helped him do it.

more and other NHL bits from Jim…

Update 7:05pm ET: Lafleur turns himself in to the authorities a day earlier than previously announced. He was released without condition and is set to appear in court February 7th.
