    That's the season Vitaz was a goon squad. They should be embarrassed if Panarin had to punch someone.

    Seriously. Can’t have Panarin going back to Russia. Seems legitimately dangerous.

    Just read this article.

    https://www.kp.ru/daily/27243/4371047/

    Sounds like something did happen, but blown out of proportion.
    Article states, that Panarin people Bribed the police. So if this is true, then who ever got paid 40k in euro to dismiss everything is going to be in real trouble now.

    Basically they are saying, you were born here, this is your country. Now you are in USA talking shit about the country that raised you.
    Because of Panarins tweets, young people in Russia took streets and incited violence. Kind like Trump situation.
    It’s his former coach that is telling the whole story, he sounds very pissed about Panarins political views. I wonder how much he got paid for this!

    I was talking about this with my son the other day. He was asking about the Olympics and would Panarin play for the Russian team. I told him I doubted he would based on his political comments. There's no chance he can go back without worrying about retribution.

    Oh for fucks sake..........when are any of these athletes going to learn that on social media every pro athlete is bait for some version of “oh I’ll get this guy” if they are outspoken in any way. Just stay the hell away from social media. My god.

    What can they actually do to him not allow him to leave the country and then throw him in prison ?

    "politics" is part of hockey since kids are 5 years old. They're so "above"/numb to that shit until its too late.

    They’ve done much worse than that. A sham trial and heavy prison time is kid stuff.

    I seriously don’t think he should go back there at this point.

    Even if it's true, we need the details around what really happened.

    I'd worry about worse. The shit that goes on in Russia is frightening and hard to believe. Check out Phil's tweet from Mercagliano. There's a few of the larger scale examples listed there. Putin is the only authority in Russia. Anyone that speaks out publicly seems to end up dead.

    Pretty much. Watch 'Spycraft' on Netflix and there are basically no boundaries or rules, anything goes.

    The details are as quoted by his former coach.

    Panarin went to the bar with few jersey man after loosing a game in Latvia.
    Panarin had few drinks and knocked out a girl with few punches.
    Panarin asked journeyman from the team to drive him to hotel, but police came.
    Panarin contacted his people with influence who agreed with local police to defuse the situation for 40l euro. Situation was defused.

    This is an absolutely fabricated story.

    The questions here are:
    1. Why Panarin beat up the girl, no reasons are stated.
    2. Why would Panarin ask a jersey an to take him to hotel, does jersey man own a car in Latvia?
    3. The bribe took place in Latvia, so no repercussions here. They covered them selves.

    That’s my thought too. I don’t want to get too dark about it but bad things happen to those who oppose Putin publicly. Most of whom don’t live to tell about it. Even if he’s not playing hockey, he needs to stay here.

    Its also not just him, but if he has family still over there, considering Russia's history they are certainly in danger
