I know there are some differences between the USA and Canada and this is one of them I guess.
I remember in a discussion on the board a while back I had a debate with some others as to whether there should be lines drawn as to how much of a second chance we give people.
I am not going to get into who said what, but some posters were of the opinion that criminals should have a second chance but at the same time, that chance shouldn't include eligibility to UM.
Having a rather colorful past, I am a big advocate of second chances and I am glad to see that this guy is being given one. I am not an advocate of numberous chances, but I think second chances are deserved.
Mike Danton was convicted and jailed for conspiracy to commit murder and has since been released. He is now going to play university hockey for the St. Mary's Huskies in the future.
I wonder what the Freep would say if he was a football player and allowed to play for UM. Anyway, I just heard the news and thought it was interesting.
How he can play university hockey after playing a year of pro hockey however, is beyond me.
