    Elementary stats classes teach this novel concept called sample size. Look it up.

    71 pts in 527 games, or .13 ppg. If he's a decent player than so is Micheal Haley and his .12.

    You suggesting something doesn't make it true, amigo. I don't see how that was clearly an intent to injure clearly. Especially when your emotions are running wild on the matter. Maybe you're not smart enough to know that.

    The only reason Wilson was blind to the hit was because he stopped looking at Reaves and instead turned his own head at the last second to watch his pass instead. Heck, Wilson's skates and chest were directly pointed at Reaves' direction, so it wasn't like Reaves literally came in from a blind angle.

    What's the most points that Wilson has had? I don't see how any of your last paragraph ramble is relevant to anything.

    Well, I think this picture proves the point.

    Reaves intended to injure Wilson. He injured Wilson. Then he took a victory lap for achieving his goal.

    Class dismissed.

    That looks totally professional not something made in a dark basement.

    The league is safer if Wilson can't/isn't playing though..

    Some of Wilson hits are awful. Some shouldn’t be defended.

    However - when you’re celebrating injuring someone - and giving someone a concussion - and signing photos of a illegal hit you did to someone to be sold for profit - you’re just a awful person.

    Tom Wilson has had some awful hits. Reeves is being a awful person.

    Live by the sword, die by the something-or-other. I forget.

    I hit too many people in the head when I played hockey until a tougher guy knocked me senseless, so now it's hard to remember things. Turpentine potato knickerbocker

    Maybe if you keep repeating that, it becomes true in some distant universe.

    the only problem with 'player safety' here is that your boy couldn't/didn't tighten his chin-strap...clean, not late, shoulder-to-shoulder, wilson saw him coming and turned away...

    wear your equipment correctly and (if you're going to go around making illegal hits that seriously injure people) keep your damn head up when one of the few guys in the league that can whoop your ass is on the ice...

    And he will be there for next Pens-Caps matchup. Poor Pens.

    Yes you can. It's called being human. It's awesome seeing someone like Wilson get absolutely hammered. Would love to see more of it. I don't come on here pretending I'm god. Why should others.

    What’s awesome is seeing some actual physicality. Unfortunately, now it’s 5 and a game.

    Remember when everyone was on their hundred foot tall horses calling Tom Wilson classless because they assumed he was laughing at someone he injured (but were ultimately proven wrong... not that they'll accept that)?

    This is actually what disgusting behavior looks like. I wanted to be happy for the Vegas story, I even argued with people against the whole "gift draft" narrative. But this is disgusting. Supporting this is disgusting. This is not what a rivalry is. There's no way to spin it to make yourself seem like an honorable supporter of hockey who just wants the game to be safer.

    The fact that this thread is still allowed to go on when the intent of anyone who posts in it to support Reaves is simply to be happy that someone might be/is concussed is an embarrassment to these boards. It should not matter who the player is.

    I don’t think one person here shed a tear when domi knocked out that pos ulfie. It’s called karma.

    I didn't ask anyone to shed tears. Why do people of your ilk always insist upon inserting words or thoughts to fill spaces where none are needed?

    Also, still not what karma is.

    It’s exactly what karma is.

    FWIW, Reaves played pretty soft tonight against Chicago. I don't remember a single hit. He must have had a stern talking to.

    Revenge can be dumb, like in your bad analogy.

    However, someone widely regarded as a dirtbag doing a dirtbag thing and then getting his chops busted for it, that kind of revenge is more palatable for people.

    Poetic justice, if you will

    Wait so someone is selling autographed pictures of a hit where the guy is lying on the ice concussed and people are defending it? This board may have just hit an all time low.

    This board has how many members? And exactly how many are defending to warrant labeling the whole board hitting an all time low?
