You mean Austin Watson?  You might want to change that headline for the thread.  Just a TAD bit misleading...

Is it just me or is the 27-game figure seem a bit random / strange?  I'm not saying its not deserved, it certainly is...

Here's the thing: we don't really know what happened. I read an article that said he shoved her in public, and the police had to charge him with so many witnesses, even though his wife (gf?) didn't want to press charges. Look, he did a really stupid thing. Don't hurt anyone, especially the women you care about. I think he deserves to sit for a bit, and if the NHL thinks 27 games is what it takes, I'm fine with that.

 

Not sure if there is a thread for this, but we need to not compare the Slava Voynov thing to this. Watson (allegedly) shoved his wife, she tripped, and fell to the ground. No bruises, no broken bones, not scars. I am by no means saying that that is acceptable, but Voynov almost killed his wife... He should be out of this country for good, not just not allowed to play in the NHL.

Maybe they were going for 1/3 of a season?

(shrugs)  That is as good of a guess as any.  Either way, hopefully he learns his lesson as I'm sure this one will cost him a fair bit of $$$ too.
