Love it. Has to be said. NHL should be ashamed. DOPS is a joke. The Game Managers are a joke. The f***in rule book is a joke.
Glad it was a big franchise that stepped up and said something. If it was a smaller organization with not much pull it goes ignored by the league... wait it got ignored anyways, never mind.
I see him do that, then I see him punch that player with all his might for good measure.....not long after that I see him literally grab a guy and attempt to plunge his face into the ice. What if Panarin was unable to brace himself for that? You know how bad that would have turned out?
Just a sickening amount of violence..........and the guy gets a fine. A notorious guy at that.
Good on the Rangers for making this statement.
We'll see what happens nextg (grabs some popcorn)
Same way it garners hyperbolic nonsense bs response like your reaction and post? I am not going to think about this for a minute it was over the top therefore the ENTIRE thing is a laughing stock?
Bitch about it and do the same thing. 1 of 2 things happened.. i am pretty confident more than one person was involved in this statement so:
1. Advisor advised against that statement due to it being a bit much in word alone.. potentially just the word horrific.. and was vetoed "no we want this in there FOR THE EFFECT"
2. Advisor advised to put something grand in there to really bury that shot so to speak. The statement is full of grand we have had enough points
- naming parros
- calling him unfit
I am going with option 2 and i would also bet some money a few texts and calls were exchanged last night between some owners.. we have had enough of this guy.. is carlo back yet?
You don't deserve one when you start talking about guns and bullets in relation to hockey scrums.
Yeah, poor innocent Wilson was just sitting there, minding his own business and punching a man in a vulnerable position in the back of the head.
Truly Panarin and the Rangers are the real monsters here.
Between the game management and DOPS
wonder why the nhl struggles to reach the heights a great spectator sport should attain
Who would have ever guessed a great hockey talent like sparrow wouldn’t understand? What a joke, that face plant on the ice must have scrambled Parros’ eggs
And you noting this changes my point how?
In regards to option 2, I better far more texts went around between owners asking "Why don't we have a guy like this?"
The NHL is the one that caused it. The reason everyone here is so incensed - 5,000 posts in one day - is because the NHL let him get away with it - again.
Punched him in the shoulder, not the head, there's different angles that show this. Doogie Howser MD.
Thats 200 Tom Wilson fines, so he could attempt to murder 200 players. Who knows maybe hell get lucky a few of those times and actually do it
I disagree, murder of anyone, attempted murder of anyone, or intentionally taking actions which have a great likelihood to lead to serious bodily harm or death are horrifying to me. Shoving on a hockey play is not likely to lead to serious harm or death. Accelerating someone's skull into the ice from a height of 5.5 ft in under a second qualifies for me as an act with a high likelihood of serious injury, we just happened to get lucky.
Even Seattle wants in on this one
The NHL only has itself to blame for it.
Don't punch player in the head that's facing down on the ice defenseless. Let me punch your brother the same way and you just stand there and watch him take it. Bozo
I think calling it a horrifying act of violence is a bit much, but Wilson should have been suspended for that. Don't care if you do that to a superstar like Panarin or Joe Schmo, either.
Attempted murder now?!!! How far can the faux outrage go? Someone top this, can I get a first degree murder accusation?
He didn't punch him in the back of the head, he hit him in the back/shoulder.
What would be amusing is if a bunch of other teams stepped up and volunteered to pay it and publicly announced that they did so.
My professional diagnosis is that Wilson should consider not punching players laying on the ice. That should avoid any more cases of Getting-Jumped-By-Rangersitis.
If Panarin hits his head on the ice it could have been very bad. So yes I'm calling it what it is
You have some weird notions regarding the 90s. But times do indeed change, not always for the better. Maybe you should watch some footage from those days to see how entertaining hockey can truly be.
Are there any Ranger fans out there that wish their team would just push back instead of two days of complaining? Genuinely curious as I don't think I've seen any in these threads.
It doesn't have to change your view. It's just an observation to counter this:
"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."
