    When you are the DOPS, make a decision that seems to be as wrong as this is and don't even have any sort of transparency you don't get to claim "due process was followed". Most people will question it.

    A hyperbolic nonsensical response likening hockey to a bullet being shot isn't worthy of being taken seriously. I don't remotely care what someone here thinks of me and insulting someone personally over what some millionaires did on the ice is beyond the pale levels of embarrassing. Says more than enough about you all than I could ever type.

    Get rid of the instigator rule and allow players to police themselves and their teammates. It's obvious the league is not looking out for them.

    Regardless of what people think of the incident this is true. Twitter is truly a cesspit, a human hive of idiocy. It starts with "twit" for a reason.

    You know it. And as a Sabres fan of 50 years, as a hockey fan, Wilson's actions when combined with his history warrant it.
    No one wants this, but given what is now known about head injuries especially, action is demanded, Parros and his department fell short, they will answer for that, one way, or another.

    It's one overdramatic/emotional line in an otherwise valid statement. Exaggeration shouldn't invalidate the entirety of what was stated.

    At least a million dollar fine should suffice.

    The statement lost all credibity with "horrifying act of violence". You know who should actually lose their job? The guy that came up with that.

    Repeat. Violent. Offender.

    No precedent will be set if the league steps up and corrects its mistake. This is a unique situation that is obvious to everyone but you and Caps fans.

    People are acting like the Rangers organization didn't anticipate a massive fine. They obviously think it's worth it.

    Yeah, rag dolling a helmetless player to the ice head first TWICE isn't horrifying then I don't know what is.

    Where did I insult you? I said you have nothing to actually respond with. Saying "it's not worthy of being taken seriously" is yet another way to deflect. The point of that poster's post was that whether or not Panarin actually suffered a head injury is irrelevant in evaluating the danger of Wilson's action. That's what the bullet analogy is saying. Do you have a response to that, or are you going to deflect again?

    LMAO you are the one casting personal insults in this thread at others repeatedly, I agree it is very embarrassing for you.

    I also see that you missed the point of the bullet analogy. To explain it more simply for you, the point of the analogy was not to assess the degree of the incident (I never compared a bullet being shot to hockey), but rather to assess the outcome of the incident and the blame that can be assigned with respect to the outcome (the bullet missing the target and whether we can still hold the shooter accountable).

    That would only damage the NHL further.

    Don't engage with a player who is far more imposing physically than you in a scrum when he's surrounded by 3 Rangers. Panarin punches Wilson when he's down, he gets up, 3 guys are there and he goes after Wilson. Boo, F'ing hoo after that.

    No one was ever going to have their minds changed regardless of if the Rangers put out something or nothing. As far as I know teams can't appeal the DOPS so nothing was going to ever change on the Wilson front.

    But it has gotten the media and the fans talking. Almost to an outlet that I have seen almost everyone of the talking heads is blasting the NHL.

    If enough of the the NHL's major sponsors or TV providers get on board with that sentiment, well money talks and it will force change.

    A horrifying act of violence to me is something like a terrorist act or murder of an elderly person. This is just an assault in a hockey game between grown ass men.

    To who, a minority of whiners on social media? As usual the Twitter mob over inflates their value, the vast majority of people couldn't care less about this and anyone with a set would be completely turned off from this level of hyperbolic nonsense from the Rangers and that's exactly what this grandstanding is, hyperbole.

    Horrific act of violence? Give me a break

    I mean, there are people in this thread that are clearly not Caps fans that don't hold your position. So, sure?

    Kind of sad this is going to end up being the biggest story this season when McDavid could break 100 pts in 56 games and Matthews likely gets over 40 goals.
