Which makes no sense, if he's done something bad enough that he needs to be removed from society for 6 months, why was he allowed to finish the season ?

There's special conditions for seasonal workers. NHL Player just so happens to be a seasonal occupation, although I think it's stretching it a bit much. I could understand if you were a poor fisherman, who committed a minor felony, that had to provide for his family. Not a millionaire-drunk-hit-and-run-driver.
Oh well, maybe he'll get a 400 lbs Habs fan as a cell mate who hasn't seen a woman in 10 years.
