Update on Virtanen:

He gone.


Good he was terrible at hockey. I feel like the only people cheering for him were douchebags who find it edgy to cheer for bad people who "deserve" a second chance

Deserve isn't the right word. Some of us think a second chance should be possible. There are even some who think a second chance shouldn't be necessary upon acquittal. Just a chance. Shrug. Fortunately, we don't have to worry about it anymore because he was terrible at hockey.


You say "some of us" implying you are part of the group. So were you;
- cheering for him?
- thought he deserved a chance?
- a douchebag?
- edgy?

I dont want to assume your stance here but all I meant is that he had done nothing to earn his spot and his biggest fans seemed to have a lot in common.
I am all for second chances for those that do deserve it so I think it is the right word. I dont think anything about him, from his talent to character earned him anything. Take the accusations away and he was still a guy who had low effort, was rumored to not train or practice hard and often hurt his team on the ice.
Last year he was outscored in the KHL by numerous NHL castoffs.

He brought nothing to the table but nothing lost given it was a PTO and he is gone now. I just think for a team with many black marks in the PR department they would want to avoid a guy with very little upside and, rightly or wrongly, a negative connotation to many.
