Not all emergencies are short notice. Could have been something they'd been dealing with that got worse and they as a family decided he was needed at home. I have a hard time believing that Tuuka would hide behind his daughter if he just needed a vacation or didn't want to play anymore.NHLTIM wrote: ↑Wed Aug 19, 2020 1:28 pmJust weird timing ....he said his heart wasn’t in it and all his teammates said they thought his leaving was coming and weren’t really shocked. So now it’s an emergency with his daughter...could be but the timing sure seems strange. Seems like a spin to me.bradleygt89 wrote: ↑Wed Aug 19, 2020 1:14 pmWhat's wrong Tim, you need to see a Dr's note or a death certificate before you believe a hockey player has to leave to be there for their child? Don't remember anyone here giving Barbs shit about missing games to go home for the birth of his child. Sorry, but it is disappointing that some people think that $$$ solves all kinds of shit, or that 'celebrities/athletes' etc don't have to deal with the same shit us common folk do. You give passes to all the time to players for their on ice performance, why not give it to them and believe them for the off ice shit too? Not every hockey player's life is scandalous...sometimes it's just regular human shit, and there isn't any reason not to believe Tuuka that he had to be there for his daughter. But I'm sure the Enquirer will have the real story out soon...
As far Barby we knew he was leaving beforehand, it’s a totally different situation.
You’re entitled to your opinion , just like I am.
