Man I hate some fans in this market sometimes.

 

Who the F cares? He posted a 3 second video where he looked at the camera once. I look away from the road that long looking at my nav screen.

 

People will rip this guy for anything apparently.

Well, we knew that the “ Usual Suspects “ would come running to his defence.

Is it really something to beat him up over though? There are bigger issues to freak out about than a guy spending a few seconds video taping himself while driving.

I’m not sure some of these arguments would hold up very well in court. The guy made a stupid move....And it’s not the first time. Just admit it.

Yeah it was stupid but noone cares. Pay the fine and get back to the shotgun Jake that everyone loves. Or at least they should or they'd be pretty shortsighted fans to not see the growth in his game the last couple years. At 23, he's only getting better and this season was a pleasure to watch.

Sure it's a stupid move, but do we have to dwell on it? He made a mistake, which we all do. No point in keeping a record of all his dumb moves so as to craft the perfect indictment of him, unless you thing incriminating our players is worth your time. Spend some more time on the positives.

I could use a little more reckless from 18. Keep it up but bring it on the ice please.

I guess my question is is there anything that would make you see that this doesn't matter in the end?

 

If not, then there's clearly no point in trying to convince you as you sound like someone who had their mind made up about Virtanen before this.

I see that you are a lawyer. So of course you are aware of the legal principle, "De minimis non curat lex"? Translated as "The law does not concern itself with trifles." Or to put it another way, nobody cares.

 

It must be very exciting, after months with nothing happening in the NHL, for you to have a new opportunity to crap all over a Canuck.

we wait for that emotional growth spurt

maturity, I think its called

you might want to get that fixed before you come back to camp.

Yeah, and Virtanen has turned a corner in the right direction with regards to conditioning.


I couldn't care less if he weighed 350 lbs in his previous life.

so, you think he looks in shape and ready to play in his new clip?

I posted the old pic because I think he looks doughy in the new vid, possibly not AS doughy, but not is shape

you can agree or disagree and time will tell

Maybe there was a passenger recording the video and he happened to lose his left arm?? :ph34r:

Where did I crap on him?........And by the way I CARE.....And I would CARE a lot more if he had hit some kid out bike riding. You are missing the whole point.

Looking at the video, he only takes his eyes off the road for a few seconds and he doesn't appear going too fast, with a single car ahead of him at a fair bit of distance. I don't think there was any chance that he was going to get into an accident. To me this doesn't make him seem reckless or stupid but I think it speaks to his maturity because I cannot see someone like Petey or Bo ever posting such a video. Its just not a smart idea to film yourself breaking the law, posting it on social media is even dumber and the reason why people do things like this is to chase clout on social media. I recently suggested that we sign him to a long term contract but honestly I think he still needs to do some growing to receive that kind of commitment. File this under "What the hell were you thinking?"

Watch out!!! You’re going to get accused of crapping on him.

Begs the question of whether you would be ticketed and your insurance knocked if you posted a similar video and the authorities knew of it and who you are.

He will be a force in the playoffs this year and in the future. 

All the young stars JB acquired are all going to grow up together and win Lord Stanley.  Hockey Gaud is on our side!
