What do you mean the damage has been done? He's still a prospect for a very good NHL team with a very good chance to carve out an NHL career about 1,000 miles away from where this whole mess occurred.

If Ray Lewis can get past an alleged murder that happened in a US city while he was in the NFL to achieve stardom, then Cousins can get past an accusation in Canada while he was a junior hockey player.

It would obviously be better for Cousins if the whole thing never happened, but I honestly doubt this will have much of an impact on his career. Given what he was accused of doing, he should count himself as being extremely lucky that all he got was some negative press. It could have been much worse.
