I understand there are some complications for the players still on the Hawks but for the rest of them, I'm not sure why it's not as easy as saying something along the lines of "We all knew something weird happened back then but really had no idea the gravity of the situation or the impact it had on Kyle.   I was an ignorant 20 year old and made some comments that I thought were just breaking balls that I now understand had a terrible impact on Kyle and his family and I am completely ashamed of my role in this tragic situation.  I want to provide a sincere apology to Kyle, his family..." etc.    

The players weren't the ones who needed to report Aldridge and make sure he didn't get a chance to do this to anyone else.  You would just hope that a few of them would step up and apologize to Kyle Beach for being ignorant douchebags when they were younger and take a little responsibility for being part of the problem by not being a better friend and teammate, even if he was just a call up.  It seems like that would go a long way for both Beach and their own reputations.   

...but I guess Toews and Kane are going to try a different approach.   Hopefully it stains them both forever.

Well someone has mastered the art of saying something while saying nothing. I guess having only been interviewed for an hour, you can glean something from that.

I don't know the guy from adam on a personal level, but I will be so fvcking heartbroken if it turns out John Madden was part of this whole thing and treated the victim poorly.

One of my favorite Devils of all time.

Me too. It would be incredibly disappointing. He was the inspiration for my name on here. I have two Madden jerseys I would never wear again.

if he was on the ice practicing, in the locker room and/or around the arena than he was most likely aware.

Big difference between being aware and participating, in my opinion. Anyone who saw something and didn’t say anything, while maybe a little cowardly, might have been afraid of the repercussions of doing so.

That's why I said aware.

Personally I think there are  different levels of responsibility and it starts at the top imo. But I don't think anybody who was aware gets a free pass. Just my opinion.  Don't know what Madden said so I won't guess, I will however assume (insert joke here if necessary) that his head wasn't up his a$$ and he was aware. At least he wasn't 1 of the 37 who refused to be interviewed.  I do find the public statements from guys wearing letters and the management group so far to be sickening. 

Torts made some great comments  today one of them being the simple and I'll summarize - would your decision have been the same if it was your 20 year old? Another being somebody just had to stand up and walk the guy out the door. 

Being wrapped up in trying to win a cup must be amazing but does it come at the cost of discarding being a decent human being? Just not ok to me, again just my opinion.

If you are interested in what Toews and Kane had to say in detail check out this guys twitter, he writes for the athletic but he tweeted out as they did their individual zoom calls last night. There's a lot of content all in one place. Kind of jealous how there's so much real sh!t on this guys twitter, it must be nice to have that kind of coverage minus the sex abuse scandal part. Just scroll down 20 hours ago on his account for the 2 clowns.  But there's good stuff before that as well relating to the whole thing.

Couldn’t have said it any better.

fvck you Toews. We already knew Kane was trash but congrats on joining him, loser. 

That’s pretty impressive by JR.  

Kinda makes EJ and Dano look like empty suits.
