I hope tomorrow's game is a clean match and we all shake hands afterwards
Was sure as hell not expecting that
This is awesome. Good for NYR for having the guts to put this statement out and going against the NHL and their decision
John Davidson and Jeff Gorton's press release game is generational. First the letter to the fans, then standing by Panarin, now calling for Parros' head.
I think the best part of this is focusing on the Panarin issue.
The Buchnevich play was dirty and deserved a 1 game suspension. But the Panarin thing getting completely ignored by the league because he was just lucky enough to not hit his head on the ice is the inexcusable part of this error.
I'm sure Bettman will blink...not
yes. I thought the Panarin thing was much worse than what he did to Buch. if it was almost anyone other than Wilson, you could almost give them the benefit of the doubt for what happened to Buch, maybe they didn't realize the stick was under his throat and they thought he was kicking the goalie, who knows. but he absolutely tried to slam Panarin's head into the ice, I couldn't believe my eyes when it happened.
That is impressive. An unexpected F U to the league.
As a Canucks Fan, I f***ing LOVE that statement.
This is how you defend your Organization, Good Shit guys
The league will penalize the Rangers more than they penalized the psychopath.
Good, now show it on the ice
It's really the union that needs to blink.
They have to stop endangering players on 30 teams to protect one player.
I guess I’m in the minority but I thought what he did to Buch was worse than what he did to Panarin. Panarin and Wilson were willing combatants there. Buch was laying face down with his arms at his sides and Wilson punched his head into the ice. That was the dirtiest thing I’ve seen since Bertuzzi imo.
Anyway very glad to see this Rangers statement. Hopefully the players offer a statement of their own tomorrow.
Love it! Well said.
Rangers message to the league:
You wanna run your business like a gong show
Ill show you what a gong show is.
Talk is f***ing cheap. Do something about it.
Wow that’s impressive
Love it! Will only make the league look like an even bigger joke, when we are fined more than Wilson.
You know, I may have preferred a different type of response, but this is definitely something and I applaud the organization for doing it.
Direct and forceful from the most valuable franchise in the NHL.
This thing is, the Rangers will get punished more by the league office for issuing that statement than Wilson was for committing the acts. Typical NHL.
Bold statement - But definitely needed to be said. Wilson definitely should’ve been suspended for at the very least the rest of the regular season
