i should write for the times; i was waaaaaaayyyy ahead of plashke.
anyway, i think that both sides have a point. on the one hand, what business do the kings or the nhl have in meting out punishments beyond what he recieved in a court of law? but at the same time, is it appropriate for the kings, who market themselves to families and children, to employ convicted felons? what if corvo was sentenced to jail for six months, came out, and was then re-employed by the kings? it could be said that he had then paid his debt to society and that he should have a clean slate, and that he should therefore have every right to pursue employment.
whatever other moral issues abound, i think the kings could have avoided a lot of trouble if they had suspended him for more like thirty games. that wouldn't have solved any ethical/moral dilemmas, but it would have saved the kings some bad press and i think people would be more inclined to accept corvo again.
