    The league forced the Rangers hand tomorrow night, the two best players who dresses for the Caps must pay by having their season ended!! The same way Panarin's season was ended last night! Then it will be a lesson learned!!

    Welp, I'm a little nervous that Sean Avery is basically saying the same exact thing I wrote on here yesterday.

    That said, he's right.

    And beyond that, I've said it here once last ngiht and I'll say it again. The NYR revenue is a major reason why the NHL is able to have 32 team league and why teams like PHX and FLA are still around. As such, they need to tell Gary Bettman in very simple terms -- don't protect our 80m dollar investment. Then don't expect a dime in rev share. Feel free to sue us and watch the league dissolve in the process.

    The Rangers are going to end up with a bigger fine for their statement than Tom Wilson for almost killing 2 people. Watch.

    That is not even controversial; that's the future.

    San Jose was fined $100K for speaking out against the league years ago.

    wonder what fine the Rangers will pay.

    Chara would put him through a wall. The Rangers have no defense

    It's still mind boggling they hire enforcers to run player safety, like that's the last guy you hire

    I am not sure what is worse, Tom Wilson thinking it’s ok what he did, The league only fining him $5,000 for what he did, or Caps fans supporting and defending Wilson for what he did.

    Even if smith beats the snot out of Wilson, there will be 20 other caps chasing him around the ice.

    absolutely embarrassment to the sport...but apparently that is the type of response the nhl prefers and wants over just handing out a suspension

    The biggest crime committed in the last 24 hours is that Boomer Esiason and Don freakin La Greca are the voices of hockey on NY sports radio.

    If professional body builder and part time hockey player Julien Gauthier can step up here with some retaliation within the rules, he'd easily earn himself a place in the heart of Rangers fans and perhaps even a better shot when Quinn is gone.

    And if it doesn’t go well against Wilson, he’ll get a viking burial out on the Hudson. Can’t lose.

    It sucks that Trouba and Lindgren are hurt but I heard that Nick Fotiu, Tie Domi, Jeff Beukeboom, and Colton Orr are signed for tomorrow's game.

    Kudos to your org for having the chutzpah to say something about the embarrassment that is the DoPS and the league as a whole.

    Prayers up for the bread man.

    I doubt it. The Rangers are putting pressure on the league to deal with this situation and calling up a goon would probably take the league off the hook, a bit. Not saying it’s right or wrong but I doubt the Rangers alter their lineup or style much at all.

    Great stuff from your team with the statement.

    Parros is a clown and has deserved this for years.

    The NHL should fine the Rangers $5,000.
