2018 Offseason Thread

Recommended Posts

In all fairness, if you look up other pictures of her you can tell that one posted is not a flattering angle...unless she had some plastic surgery between those pictures and now.

TSN reporting that things might be complicated between the Jets and Trouba again. He's an RFA. Is his compensation worth tendering an offer? He is probably going to get a lot of money....probably a first, second, and a third round pick just to sign him. I guess doesn't make much sense if you can get Carlson for nothing.

We also don’t have a second or a third, so it’s not even worth thinking about.

The RFA compensation would come in the form of 2019 Draft picks since this would theoretically happen after the draft, but we did move out 2019 3rd in the Maroon trade which would make an offer sheet impossible unless you're getting him cheap. Doesn't rule out of the possibility of trading for his rights from Winnipeg, however, it would just be expensive because Trouba is a hell of a player.

That story in Ottawa is crazy, I'm gonna wait until I see what happens first before saying they are guilty but yeah it definitely doesn't look good.

I wonder how much Hoffman actually knew though, it's not like it would be hard for her to hide it, she could do it on her phone at anytime, anywhere and unless he's peaking over her shoulder at all times he possbly could have no idea so it becomes a they said / his gf said argument and of course he's gonna believe his gf of 10 years if she said she didn't do it and had no history of this sort of thing. 

If this is all true though and he knew about it then geez that's so beyond fvcked up.

All these players’ wives tweeting about what a bitch Hoffman’s fiancé is and how they aren’t surprised doesn’t bode well.

Definitely agree it looks bad just not gonna say they are guilty yet until we get more information. It's the number one thing I hate about social media, they are already labeled guilty in the court of social media even though no proof is out there. 

Of course if she is then she's obviously a horrible human being but I can wait until more comes out before yelling guilty like I see a lot are on the internet.

Oh, no question its a horrible picture. But, Google images also reveals:

I think she just has one of those faces that makes her look like she's always up to something.

It really doesn't matter what Hoffman knew or should have known.  If you're a player who has a family of your own, you don't want someone on your team who is attached to someone who tormented a teammate's wife at what must have been the lowest point in her life. 

Maybe he dumps her,  I don't know.  They've been together since around the time he was drafted.  But if he wants to catch on with another team, he really has to clear the air and she has to admit she has a real problem that she has to do something about.  Even that might not be enough.

Even though it's not looking good for her they still have to prove it was her that did it, so far its just allegations. Even if she's proven not guilty there are going to be numerous teams who don't want him because public opinion has already tried and convicted her guilty.

Yeah, it goes without saying that no one knows anything for sure at this point.  But I was listening to Patrick O'Sullivan on NHL Radio yesterday who was noting that based on his own experiences with his father, a restraining order like the one Karlsson's wife got is not just there for the asking. 

So basically, either Hoffman's GF was doing some really nasty stuff or Karlsson's wife perjured herself and vindictively used the legal process against a teammate's significant other.  Either way, it's really ugly.

If Karlsson wants to come here, I'll personally join Twitter and post something nice about his wife every day.

Ordinarily I would think a guy named Cox was an expert in being bullied. But he still managed to make himself look mind numbingly ignorant.

He's been doing this for 20 years.  He hasn't changed and journalism hasn't changed - there's just more ability to amplify a terrible take.

Hmm, thanks for the clarification.   I had to work late last night and was streaming some radio station in Canada that was talking hockey and they mentioned it.   

Oh well, we all know it's coming anyway.

That's fair enough, my perspective is that of a 28 year old.  

That said, even in my lifetime, I feel like twitter has made things exponentially worse even since I was in high school.

But anyway, at what point does the league step in regarding the situation in Ottawa?  Does the league even have any authority to do so?

It's an utter and complete dumpster fire.. mismanaged from the top down.  Kinda sorta feel for their fans a bit.

I can't imagine they have the ability to, or would want to, do anything in regards to this situation.  It doesn't look good for the sport, but I don't think it's gotten much attention here in the U.S. (at least not yet anyway), and if they were to even attempt to step in, which I still doubt they could, it would probably only bring about negative publicity.  I think at this point it's a legal matter being that they applied for (and I guess received?) an injunction for protection.  The league, or perhaps the team itself more likely, might have a conduct policy, but to me this still seems like more of a personal/individual issue that takes place outside the league and is someone's private business.  Not sure that they'd be able to dictate or implement an action or punishment, at least not in this stage of the ordeal where it's still pretty much a he-said she-said thing.  If someone is found guilty in a court, then perhaps they might be able to do something at that point.
