I'll sticky this in the wake of the 2003 WJC team also being named in the ongoing cases re: sexual assault AND the civil case against Daryl Katz.
Any speculation as to who is/isn't guilty of SA will result in an immediate Level 1 infraction. Repeat offenders will be at risk of having their accounts permanently banned
. It is not our place here at CapFriendly to lay blame at the feet of others: that burden is up to the Canadian justice system.
I want to reiterate on behalf of everyone at CapFriendly that having the awkward, necessary conversations about the toxicity associated with hockey, and the consequences of the culture this sport has nourished over its current lifetime, is encouraged. These conversations are one of a very few mechanisms that we as fans and we as the public have in forcing change. Please conduct yourselves with the utmost of respect for others and the sensitivities this topic raises.
