    Now the right thing to do would be for the league to pay for it.

    But, Bettman represents 32 teams. 31 other teams have not been caught doing something like this, and why would Seattle have to pay for this when it was Chicago that was the issue. Even if Bettman knew about it, or the NHLPA, why would teams not involved, and owners who might not have known it have to pay. That would be my argument if I'm like Toronto. Why would I be punished for Chicago's issues.

    It's pennies, if that, to these guys, but it would open pandora's box over future possible investigations. I get why the NHL wouldn't pay, but if Chicago decides not to pay...that's bad. However, I think John Doe 2 could legal go after CBH and say, "all I want is counselling paid for." and CBH likely would settle quickly.

    I get that he is responsible to all teams, but they have the 2mil they fined the Hawks to cover costs, and I would argue that offering to pay for the counselling can be done in such a way as to not constitute and admission of liability. It's just disappointing to see that saving a few bucks is more important that helping someone. Ah well.

    $1mill of that $2mill fine became donations to counselling centers around Chicago that focused on sexual assault. The other $1mill likely went to peoples salaries that were involved on tip-toeing this whole thing.


    And remember the theory the fine was as low as it is because Chicago might have to pay like $100mill in settlements, fines, counsellings, salaries to ppl (Bowman). This could be part of it.

    "Hawks allowed Aldrich to celebrate with them after their cup win. He felt entitled to the trophy a 2nd time after getting out of prison, on probation as a registered sex offender" a tweet from Ryan Rishaug of TSN.

    https://www.tsn.ca/aldrich-granted-s...tion-1.1718657


    So 2yrs after he was charged, jailed, and out on probation, the HHOF granted Aldrich a 2nd day with the cup to bring to his company OcuGlass. The HHOF allows past cup winners an additional day with the cup depending if it works out logistically.

    This is one of those things where I don't know how the HHOF would know of all of the issues if the Blackhawks buried it. But also, it feels like something a PR person should be able to find pretty easily, but again...he was a no-body...why would there be a look up of him I guess?

    I wonder if he contacted the HHOF directly to get the Cup, or if he went through Chicago? If he contacted the HHOF directly, I can see how they wouldn't know that he was a convicted sex offender. If he went through the Hawks to get the Cup...well, that's a different story.

    I assume directly through HHOF.
