Yes, Guy Lafleur is guilty as a result of the whole sordid and sad affair surrounding his son and fibbing to the courts. He wasn’t right to do what he did and a price must be paid. But please don’t send this hockey hero to jail. Order him to make the rounds of the community for the next twenty years speaking about doing wrong. Fine the daylights out of him so he needs to get a blue-collar job. Slap his wrist so hard it’d make a Billy Smith slash seem like a lash with a feather. Do many things. But please don’t send him to jail. Don’t send one of the greatest hockey heroes in Montreal Canadiens history to jail.
Don’t let this become a Tony Demers type story.
