Do you know what’s more ironic than Mike Hoffman saying he wants to be a leader in San Jose? Not much, given that he could very well have been a leader in Montreal under similar conditions.
For those unfamiliar with the story, the Karlsson family had accused the Hoffman family (mainly Mike Hoffman’s better half) of harassment on the Internet. Both players were wearing Senators uniforms at the time.
When the guys left Ottawa a few months apart (partly because of this story), they went years without speaking to each other. It’s safe to say that, as of today, they have no plans to reconcile.

But Kyle Dubas obviously didn’t. I don’t think any NHL GM would have done it, to be quite honest.
And while Kevin Brown should be back soon, the damage is done. https://t.co/GV1HKtqlfQ

Wow… the @MLS is going to another level! 4DP and cap increase next year!
But it would seriously take a salary floor, otherwise…
