    The more you hear about her and her behavior, the more I think that shit with her and Hoffmanís wife was bullshit or Karlssonís wife was the main party responsible for that whole mess
    The Karlsson's suffered a miscarriage not too long ago. I don't blame his wife for wanting to be with her family.

    Lol there's nothing wrong with wanting to be close to family and home. That's nonsense.

    Yeah
    I get all that.
    But she’s married to a millionaire

    She go to Ottawa whenever she wants.

    I’ve been through miscarriage myself
    People get over them.

    It totally sucks. But life goes on and you have to move forward. It’s unreasonable to make a decision that effects the next 8 years of your life based on an incident that many people deal with and move past in a relatively short period of time

    Not trying to be insensitive or anything. Just realistic

    Not to mention that Ottawa didn’t treat them well last time and that franchise will be a mess as long as Melnyk owns it

    It's unreasonable to put a timeframe on someone else's recovery.

    That’s true

    But 8 years shouldn’t be in the ballpark

    That's not for you or anyone else to say, when making a decision today.

    Money isn't an issue for them.

    My issue with your statement is the complete and utter speculation that she's some kind of cancer and was the one who was REALLY responsible for the Hoffman situation.

    Maybe Hoffman's is wife said "get over it", or something crass like that.

    I can see how you might feel I meant that
    I didn’t

    But do you honestly care what I think about Karlsson’s wife?

    Only saying that she seems to have an awful lot of influence over his decisions
    I’m old school on that I’ll admit. Especially when he earns probably all of the money. In that situation, I think she should defer to him.

    Just my opinion.

    I think it's shitty to say that a woman who had a miscarriage should suck it up and defer to her husband because he makes all the money.

    He's already made close to $50 million.

    Some things transcend money. Like my wife's mental state.

    She left Ottawa with him to begin with, so I’m guessing she’s ok.

    My point is that it’s his career. He should go where he feels is the best fit. If it’s because his wife is homesick, then there’s a good chance it’s not for the right reasons

    Forget about how that affects his career. That type of shit ruins marriages. People resent each other for stuff like that

    And if you look back, that stuff with Hoffman and his significant other was not the first time where it came out that Karlsson’s wife might be nuts.

    So it’s not pure speculation

    Let's just agree to one thousand percent disagree on this archaic mindset.

    LOL no it isn't. It's boring as fuck and traffic is a nightmare.

    If you're not in tech, there's literally no reason to go. There are 27 NHL cities more enriching than San Jose.

    I don’t think it’s archaic to say he should play where he wants to. And that if the biggest reason he’d go back to Ottawa was because of his wife, it might be the wrong reason

    I lived there for 3 years in my lates 20’s early 30’s
    Obviously YMMV, but I liked it
    And I’m not in tech

    So many guys who play for SJ don’t leave if they can stay

    Hmm. Have you actually BEEN to California?

    I live there now. It’s incredible. And Central/Coastal CA is even more beautiful than the rest.

    I thought it was closer to a still-birth than a miscarriage. Didn't they have to bury the baby? Sorry, I've been through a miscarriage too but that's not even close to having to deliver a dead baby.
