    Not victim hood, I don't know if you have been over to the Caps board or not, but there has been open mocking of Panarin. So nice try on that one first of all.

    Second, the smashed skull was actually about an inch from happening. Not sure if you actually watched the video with Panarin and Wilson or not, but had Panarin's shoulders contacted the ice about .2 seconds later, his head would have hit the ice first (the skull is inside the head, FYI). Don't know how you can say "never came close" when it was an inch away.

    Slavery used to exist.

    They used to play hockey and football without helmets.

    The goal of society is to progress over time. Things changes.

    Try and keep up.

    For sure, it’s difficult to ascertain. There’s revenue, and then there’s shit behind the curtains. Difficult to know for sure, but they have to be near the top, so their statement carries a lot of weight.

    I’d love to read the internal email chain between DOPS employees. Wouldn’t shock me if they mocked the Rangers for overreacting the way Colin Campbell did with the Cooke Savard incident...

    Guessing on the avatar, but you really want to tell me the penguins get more coverage then the steelers? Hockey might be getting slightly more coverage at the moment because of the incident but it will be short lived

    I’m wary of anyone who announces “everybody agrees with me” with zero proof / data. Any kid can announce this.

    Rangers/MTL/Leafs actually have limited pull within the NHL. Bettman builds his power by appeasing the smaller market teams, since he needs 23 votes for issues to pass. You think Leafs, Rangers and Montreal wanted a full season lockout in 2004/05? or even the 34 games one in 2012/13? Revenue sharing? Collectivized retail/apparel agreements? Now, they still have a say since Leafs Ownership has the local tv rights for every Canadian team and the national TV deal, and MSG I believe has 4 of the American teams local deals. But, the most powerful owner in the NHL is Jeremy Jacobs, which therefore gives Boston the most pull.

    What the f*** NHL and DOPS??

    I just heard the news they fined Wilson 5k.

    What a joke. He deserved a far worse punishment.

    So you’re choosing to ignore the context there because Konecny clearly headlocks Crosby and drives his head into the ice immediately before he does the same.

    Exactly why some were thinking that Wilson has done better than Panarin, so far.

    Why would anyone treat it the same? He doesn't pull a standing man backwards by pulling his hair, yanking his head backwards and aiming to drive a man's head into the ice when he doesn't have a helmet

    In this case Crosby pushes someone's helmeted head toward the ice a couple times after taking him down from a kneeling position.

    Not even remotely the same.

    you are right that it wont impact immediate viewership but the negative press hurts and if you dont recognize the longterm impacts of the NHl headlines being about Tom Wilson injuring someone rather then McDavid or Ovie scoring then I doubt I can sway your opinion. this makes the NHL look Bush league and likely impacts their ability to attract fringe fans. had they simply done what is viewed by most which would be suspend Wilson this would be a non event but Parros,DOPS and Bettman have made this a story and it's a story they dont want.

    they sound like Qanon people "embracing infamy". They manage to simultaneously be attacking everyone who disagrees with them, and portray themselves as victims because others disagree with them.

    But I thought smashing heads into ice was a no no? Or does that only apply to Wilson?

    Yes I do and I’ll tell you why, these guys all want a chance to play in the SHOW and try
    and get a BIG NHL CONTRACT!!

    These guys are hungry and they will go thru the wall for a chance to play in the NHL.
    Think about it. Opportunity knocks and they don’t get many.

    Team accomplishments don’t determine who the better individual is. Thornton hasn’t won a Cup but Wilson will never be better.

    That’s fair. Hyperbole is distractive. I generally ignore it and debate the central premise.

    Society in general used to be more violent. All sports used to be more violent.

    Judging a current action based upon something that happened decades ago is not logical.

    Is that explanation easy enough for you to understand?

    Both players should see supplemental discipline but as the league has shown, they’re okay with that. That’s sort of the problem genius.
