It doesn’t speak well to Hoffman’s character (understatement of the year) if he knew what was going on and continued to date this ++++. I’d want nothing to do with him.

Completely agreed.  I was mildly intrigued when I heard his name being mentioned this past season, but no amount of skill can make up for or negate this type of moral turpitude.

Ottawa was definitely trying to trade Hoffman this past season.  I wonder if this was the main reason for it, and if other GMs knew something wasn't quite right.

According to the article and Ottawa fans at HF Boards, he's been with her for something like ten years, going back to around the time when he was drafted. 

I forgot about that, and thinking back, I do recall his name being mentioned now.  I'm sure there's a strong possibility that this had something to do with it, and also an equally strong possibility that teams also steered clear for this very reason.  Still, I'm surprised no one was interested -- usually there's always one person/team willing to completely set aside their values and integrity for the sake of dollars and/or a championship.  Pretty revolting, but it happens.  Me, I'll take principles all day long, and tell you politely, 'no thanks'.

Oh and in regards to him being with her for 10 years... I get that maybe he feels like he knows her on a deep(er) level, and maybe he does - none of us know anything - but if any of what's alleged in that article is true, and he knows/knew about it, it speaks volumes to his character and he's as equally reprehensible of a human being.

Yeah you can’t get good Mexican food up here. Obviously the closer you are to the border, the better you’ll get. Best Mexican food I ever had was in San Diego- authentic, real deal Mexican. Nothing I’ve had since comes close.

Jose Tejas Route 1 in Woodbridge.

Best around here that I've come across.

Best Mexican I ever had was in Old Town, San Diego. Scrumptuous

Whoa.  I just saw the Hoffman story.  That's f'ing bizarre.    

 

I don't really have much else to add.

I think that'll hurt his trade status. And you know he won't be back with Sens if he (or his fiancé') tweeted bad schizzle about Karlson.

Even if you're getting a huge bargain, do you even want to bring that into your locker room?   I just saw Andrew Hammonds wife tweeted that this isn't surprising, so it sounds like at a minimum, the Hoffman's aren't well liked <--- understatement.

I don’t see how you can.... how can you trust the guy? I wouldn’t bring him in for the league minimum now, let alone trade anything for him.

I've never heard anyone 9here) speak about Tyler Bozak. At 32, I don't think he's done. I guess we're Ok down the middle, (Nico, Zacha, Boyle Travis) there are a couple teams weak down the middle that will pay $$$

I always had this fear back in the really dark days that Lou would trade a first rounder for Bozak.  

At this point, I see no use for him.  He might be a slight upgrade over whoever, but he won’t play any role in getting us where we want to be.

Besides the smallish moves that every GM needs to make, Ray’s focus should be on landing one or two real impact players we need to take the next step.  Tavares is real a long shot, so it’ll have to be in the draft or another Taylor Hall heist.

Ottawa is such a dumpster fire; what an organization!  It makes their fans soooo proud....

No way. Multiple wives are speaking out about what a crazy bitch she is.

Do not want any part of him.

GG bud, your girl cost you millions.

It would be a lot easier to believe Hoffman's denials if his girlfriend didn't look like the classic cartoon villain.

And basically the prototype for nasty girls who post things on social media. When I think of that phenomenon, the offending party is making that exact face as they post.
