    The fact that this happens frequently though seems more of a case to crack down on it more than let go just because it happens elsewhere

    Rangers are going to bring John Scott out of retirement next year just to play one game against the Caps and square off with Wilson

    If I’m the Rangers, I legit just dress as many goons as I can. Your season is over at this point. Just make a statement that if the league won’t do anything they’ll just take matters into their own hands.

    As an aside, considering Parros smashed his head on the ice in that fight against Orr, you’d think he’d understand how dangerous guys flinging someone to the ice with no helmet really is.

    Though it will be awkward if and when they have a goon act up on their roster in the future and Team Campbell-Parros comes down on them like a ton of bricks.

    This is scarface, final scene, say hello to my little friend time if I was a Rangers fan. Dress every f***ing goon you have. Let Tom Wilson go, every skill player they have you go for the head and for the kill. I'd want f***ing blood.

    Parros didn’t want to suspend Wilson but was more than happy to throw the book at Naz two playoffs in a row.

    Proves exactly what we all thought. Crooked officiating and a dirty DOPS. Gives me little hope for our players and a depth run in the playoffs.

    time to get rid of the tough guys running DOP. No reason for Parros, Shanny, Burke type of guys running it. These goons all stick up for the violence of the game as that is the way they played it. They only know that.

    If you put skilled guys in that position you would see harsh suspensions and guys will understand it's no bullshit. Start handing out 10-20 gamers and you watch POS like Wilson change or never see the ice again.

    If I was the Rangers I dress as many tough guys as you can and once Backstrom and Sprong are on the ice you attack them. Then find Ovie and run him and if you took a knee out oh well. Go after all their skilled guys. Once that is done and Wilson tries to retaliate you skate away or better yet just leave the ice and pull a Soviets vs the Flyers back in the 70's lol

    Time for the Rangers to make a mockery of the game to drill home a point to the NHL and the NHL DOP. It's a joke and has been a joke for years.

    It's mocking tweets like this is why I can't stand Carlo. So out of line. He pretty much thinks Wilson did nothing wrong.

    Wasn't Parros a really respected Enforcer at one point? Played the role the right way and didn't go after star players/players who didn't want to fight unless they went after his teams star players. Does getting a job with the league really change a man?

    O’Dog has the same kind of tweet.



    He also liked Ryan Whitney’s mocking video. Hockey culture is still so garbage in many regards.

    crosby just did even worse. He punches a guy in the back of the head.
    Then grabs him by the head and starts smacking his head on the ice.

    In the real world, that’s way worse than wrestling with someone

    ooooorrrrrr they are actually 100% right? Crosby was clearly worse than Wilson. Neither should get anything.

    considering crosby lost years to concussion and whiplash problems. He should know better than to punch someone in the back of the head and smash his head on the ice

    Crosby is not as bad as Wilson...he didn't pull a guy's hair standing up and driving him to the ice...when someone yanks your hair hard to the ice, you can't help but go down...Wilson's punch to the back of Bushnevich's head is worse than what Crosby did to Konecny.

    ummmm the law?

    i can tell you for 100% fact that 2 men struggling in a standing position and one throws the other guy down is 100% easier to defend then

    Guy who gets on top of a man and grabs his head from behind and deliberately starts forcibly driving his head into the ground.

    If this was
    A bar every single lawyer would take wilsons case over Crosby’s. Controlling for injury/money etc.

    watching the Oilers vs Canucks, I completely get why people think the North division is garbage and production needs to have an asterisk. Not saying I agree, but I get it. Vancouver is barely a real opponent

    It's f***ing laughable that a team would call for someone to get fired because they disagreed with a ruling. Shit didn't go your way too f***ing bad.

    I disagree with the non-suspension too but FFS.

    Can't wait to see what happens next time a Rangers player does something worthy of suspension. Hopefully the Rangers suspend their own player indefinitely

    Travis also has a helmet on, it's a bad look but Wilson is still worse. Lest we forget Wilson was driving the head of Buchnevich into the ice himself. Panarin is helmet-less. If he doesn't turn at the right time as Wilson whips him to the ice his skull is cracked open and God knows what happens after. There's zero chance of that happening with regards to what Crosby was doing to Konecny.

    You're also leaving out that Konecny and Crosby were both on their knees struggling to start themselves, the way you describe it you make it sound like Crosby just climbed on top of him unprovoked and started wailing on him.
