Chris Doyle Charged with Assault

As brought up in the Prospect thread, decided to created its own thread for Chris Doyle on this matter. He sure is making quite the name for himself in the past month!

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/prince-edwa...doyle-584.html

Officials with the team said forward player Chris Doyle, 19, spent the night in jail following the incident some time last week, but are giving no further details.
This should be quite interesting how this plays out..

If he is found guilty he can kiss any chance of playing with the Rangers goodbye.

And he has so much talent also! If he gets his head on straight he's a pretty nice prospect to have.

It's a shame.

But with Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov, Grachev, Kreider, Stepan, and Werek in the long term mix...

Doyle probably would have been on the outside looking in anyway.

If he had a good attitude and work-ethic he would be in the mix without a doubt. The kid has significant talent offensively and defense can be taught.

That's true.

It's unfortunate.

Million dollar talent, 10 cent head.

It's the same issues with guys like Schremp and S.Kostitsyn.

Yeah, although this kid seems to actually have some anger issues. Those other two may have work-ethic issues but I dont think you would see them in jail.

Trade him to Chicago & put him on a line with Kane. The Felon Line.

If it's a misdemeanor, it's a non-story really. He'll get a day or two in community service to have the charges dismissed or maybe they have a Canadian version of ACD (stay out of trouble for half a year, the case is dismissed and sealed, and you don't even have to come back to court).

You'll be surprised how many young men get arrested for misdemeanors. Most just don't tell anyone about it.

The issue goes beyond the isolated incident. In the case of Patrick Kane, while it certainly wasn't a good thing, it was an isolated incident and in the long run means nothing.

For Doyle, though, it goes beyond this one incident. It's another questionable event a turbulent career for Chris Doyle. His head CLEARLY isn't on straight right now and he needs to realize that this crap won't earn him even a professional contract, let alone a chance in the NHL.

I agree, I was trying to be funny when I said Felon line.

Even in the Kane situation it was vastly over blown & was 99% the fault of the cabbie looking to create a problem so he could get a civil suit out of it.

Kane should have just walked away immediatly.

Hell, Mark Messier got pinched for drunk driving once while playing in Edmonton during his early years.

oops! unless it's serious, it's not a big deal to me. Even if it's serious, I won't lose sleep over it. Doyle really needs to worry about getting a contract at this point. There is so much competition ahead of him in our prospect pool that he's got his work worked out for him.

And where are you getting this information? Even the lawyer representing Jan Radecki (the cabbie) downplayed the earlier accusations that were first reported.

Attorneys said Radecki sought no restitution, just an apology.

look at comments on bottom ..
Well sorry but "Innocent until proven guilty" does not work in this situation. I know the girl, and what he did to her. He should be charged with assault, given a sentance to serve therefore suspended from the team. But... because he is a "hockey player" (whopee!) I am sure he and the team will have the spin doctors working and come up with some excuse (alcohol is the usual scapegoat) for punching a girl in the face.

doesnt that mean we should trade him to flyers or isles? lmao
anyway, if its true.. uh oh .

yuuup, way to keep throwing away your dreams, kid

Is it really worth losing a chance to play pro hockey

edit: then again, Billy Tibbits got his chance and from all accounts he was 100% pure *******

It's not about the severity of the crime, IMO, more that it seems to be Doyle establishing a pattern of bad judgment. There were already questions about his maturity when he was drafted, and now he's been involved in (at least) two questionable incidents in a matter of a month. Even if this proves to be a minor scrape, it's still troubling. I know he's just a kid and still growing up, but he needs to start turning **** around very very soon or else he's not long for this organization.

I wouldn't really say that. Kane is known for being a hot head and has had altercations before. None to this extent, but the kid is not a nice kid. He's far from being a model citizen.

If he truly punched a girl in the face, the misdemeanor will likely stick and he'll have a criminal record ... and he can forget about the NHL unless he becomes a top-6 forward willing to play for 4-th line money.

I thought it was a little bar scrap or some other pushing/shoving match that we all had at some point as young men.

I could elaborate, but my posts keep being deleted. I think it's because the site doesn't want anything related to charges explicitly discussed until Chris Doyle is proven guilty or innocent.

I can respect that decision, so hopefully when such a time comes that we are allowed to discuss the details publically, I can just say that I did see what happened and that I believe he is going to have PR battle, and the PEI Rocket are going to face some tough decisions.

I don't know the man personally, but a lot of people that I do know are infact friends with him and by all accounts he isn't a bad guy. If he is found guilty though, I certainly hope he faces the full penaltys of the law. Some things are not excusable.
