I wonder what the significance of adding dating violence is? It was after a game, so it probably wasn’t a date in the classic use of the word. Is it only used to convey that he hit a woman, regardless of the circumstances of their meeting? And does it carry extra weight under the criminal code?Presumably Helvig will end up suspended, pending further info. He's got another year on his contract after this one, so it's a little more complicated than just cutting him loose, should that prove the most prudent course. Either way, you guys know where I land on guys who get in physical conflagrations with women ... don't want 'em, don't need 'em, won't support 'em, don't really care how good or not good they are.
I also wonder if there are provisions in the contract that would allow the team to terminate it.
