Yeah, this is the most united I have seen NHL fans in... I think ever
Sorry to all the Tom Wilson haters but Wilson didn't get suspended because it was determined it wasn't a suspendable play. I'm sure DoPS wanted to but they can't really change another rule for Tom Wilson.
Tom Wilson got 4 mins for roughing a 10 minute misconduct and a $5000 fine. That's about the max they could give him for that without changing the rules.
Wilson is better than McDavid too according to these idiots too probably.
Should the Rags instigate violence in tomorrow's game, I have no doubt they will penalized heavily. The due process as set by the league was followed and the penalty according to the rule book administered. It will be very interesting to see what will transpire tomorrow.
meh a kind of violent middle ground would be my preference enforcers really did work for a good long time
I’m not a caps fan or a Wilson fan btw I think people are thinking that for some reason I just like Eller from the caps that’s it
I know what a punch looks like.
2 wrongs don’t make a right. If wilson should be tarred, feathered, crucified and burned on the cross for what he did....Crosby deserves similar treatment, no? He had TK prone and slammed his head/face into the ice 2 or 3 times.
Boldly claiming to not be a fan of a team that you have an avatar of is pretty ballsy if not idiotic. You have to admire the gall I suppose.
And with this the NHL loses even more credibility as a pro sports league.
Disgusting joke of a punishment.
Due process doesnt mean much when evidence is ignored and the decision is
B) Lacks transparency
If you're in a position like the DOPS and your decision makes no sense you can't then hide behind claims that you followed due process correctly and expect everyone to blindly accept that
Talk about this shit in a different thread.
I love it, get banned here that'll be fantastic and still won't change a thing.
You batted an eye! You noticed the danger to the helmeted Konecny.
You know it's equivalent to what Wilson did...
Why doesn't anyone else see it? Why do they pick on poor Wilson?
No no, discuss away, just get a life in the process. This is reaching embarrassing levels of hyperbole.
In a vacuum, I don’t think Wilson’s conduct was so egregious. Scrums happen all the time, guys get sucker punched, and sometimes hair gets pulled. I’m a Rangers fan btw.
My issue with Wilson’s conduct is that he manufactured that shit show out of thin air, on the heels of his fifth major suspension, because just playing a game of hockey is apparently too boring for him. It was nothing game and there was no history between Buchnevich and Wilson. But Wilson just had to dial it up to 11 after a generic play in the crease.
Why do you care what people do in their free time? I have a PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology, run a research lab at the USDA studying plant diseases that cause billions of dollars in crop losses a year, and manage ~$3M in grants a year. In my off time, I like to discuss hockey. It’s fun, relaxing. That also includes telling you to mind your own f***ing business.
This is spicy.
But why...... very similar plays. Wilson just started higher
Cool stop crying, it's embarrassing.
Parros can deservedly lose his job and the next head of DofPS will have a firmer hand in situations like these. Or even better, they come up with a different, superior system then the one that has a former enforcer like Parros make wishy washy BS excuses for Wilson’s behavior as he gives him another slap on the wrist. (And makes other terrible decisions involving other players.)
The GMs have to actually want suspensions to be handed out more though. There’s a reason Parros does his job this way and it’s not to amuse himself. GM have to decide if they want the punishments handed out to have more teeth.
You're free to come onto a public message board and tell other people what you find embarrassing, but it's not particularly useful information.
Wilson had literally nothing to do with panarin before panarin jumped on Wilson's back.
The he defended himself.
You’re not pointing out some double standard. You’re pointing out that the issue is more widespread. Both Konecny and Crosby should see supplemental discipline but won’t because they let Wilson off the hook.
Crying all day long about a non suspension is objectively embarrassing but continue on doing it.
Punishments are collectively bargained so the problem is not parros, it's the PA.
