10:43 AM ET 12.21 | A Denver judge on Friday dropped a domestic violence case against Colorado Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov at the request of prosecutors. Varlamov, 25, was arrested in October on suspicion of felony kidnapping and assault after his girlfriend told a Denver police detective he drunkenly kicked her, knocked her down, grabbed her by her hair and told her in Russian that "if this were Russia, he would have beat her more." Police noted in reports that the Oct. 29 encounter inside the couple's downtown apartment left the woman, Evgeniya Vavrinyuk, 24, bruised. Prosecutors, who earlier declined to file the kidnapping charge for lack of evidence, asked a judge Friday to dismiss the misdemeanor assault charge after further investigation convinced them they couldn't prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.

I wonder ... how much richer is she today?

And it has always been thus. Someday things will change in this world - once upon a time I even thought that I might still be around to see it. Too sadly, all that's actually happened since ww2, is a succession of pretenders and whole bunches of new gizmos - it's a wonderful world alright - Happy Christmas, and have a good and safe holiday everyone, and may 2014 bring us all what we truly hope for.

Sounds like the prosecutors were not ready to move to another city.

Thanks, Oldtom.

There for a moment I thought you're going to stay true to form and say, 'and may 2014 bring you what you truly deserve.' :-)

Marry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too.

Seems like we've already asked for, and gotten the second dollop thereof, Roamer.

ps. That was yesterday's sentiment - thankfully, I'm not at all nostalgic - have a sinking feeling we'd just make all the same mistakes again.

Probably got a knock on the door in the middle of night from the 2014 Sochi Olympic Ambassador's Committee.

Scumbag got lucky..he deserves a beat down.

I agree. I was hoping the Oilers would've done it two nights ago but, they were busy chasing their own tails. Let's hope the Kings bring it tonight.
