What specifically was wrong with what I said? Don't act like Romney and just dance around not getting into specifics. Here's why you're wrong on calling me out: I had not paid any attention to the Kassian BS before hand. However, as I had mentioned there were three articles I read after you responded, including the Sun, that mentioned absolutely nothing like how he described the Kassian situation. Now, either, these three articles are wrong and CDC is getting their information from some other legitimate source or you're all speaking out of your ass. Word of mouth. Some keyboard warrior described it this way therefore that's how it must have happened! Get real, lol. And here comes the bias part: Why is it okay for Kassian to get involved in this but then Eager does it and he's made out to be a bigger prick than he already is? Is it because Kassian is just a 'kid' who was 'provoked' despite absolutely no evidence suggesting that? Is it because Kassian is also a Canuck? Is it because everyone hates Eager from his Chicago days and for what he did to Daniel in the playoffs? I'm willing to bet it's to do with all three.
All barfights are not equal. Some can be more serious than other. Kassian was charged with assault, which can vary greatly in severity depending on various factors.
Assault causing bodily harm is more serious, since the injuries are more serious. Assault with a weapon is obviously more serious, and involves someone using a weapon or an object with the intent of it being a weapon.
Can you see the difference between the two cases,especially in light of the fact an ambulance had to be called in for the alleged Ben Eager assault?
Assuming these two situations didn't involve hockey players, I'd expect what Kassian did (punching someone in the face) to be a summary conviction, and what Ben Eager allegedly did to be an indictable offense. The two cases are only similar in that they involve hockey players, and a bar fight, but that's where the similarities end.
