    I saw Boro not annihilate Kuzy vs Ottawa the other day perhaps because behavior modification had taken place

    The Caps should try to find another Tom Wilson, ok, maybe the 2016-17 version. Yes, everybody wants one, but those things have a funny way of working out.

    That would really piss off the rest of the league.

    The Caps should get all the Wilsons they can find. My feeling is that they got the one that there is.

    The whole league is trying to find a similar player and no one has gotten remotely close yet.

    6’4” guys who can skate fast, are built like linebackers, are physically built already at age 18 to be in nhl - and have potential skill wise are.... “generational” unfortunately!

    ... someone should post this on the main boards. “Is Tom Wilson generational”. Would be the best lol

    Is Tom Wilson generational....OMG...It would be great except for all the negative responses would be repeats of the same old responses. Boring

    I think Tommy "Dat Uppercut" Wilson has a nice ring to it. Stanley Cup ring, so pun intended.

    I think Bissonette coined The Monopoly, I've been using that one

    Great read. No Skill Willy is quickly blossoming into one of the most unique players in the league and I'm here for all of it.

    I read the whole thing. Can't really put my feelings into words expect to say, ludicrous.

    Lot's of cliche' phrases come to mind for Cole & this dummy Frank:

    - Don't do the crime if you can't do the time
    - Mess with the bull, you get the horns
    - If you try to hurt Kuzy, you'll get more than a bruisey

    Also, I cracked my orbital over 10 years ago (not fighting), and can still hear the 'crunching' sound it made when it was being cracked. Imagine biting into a carrot or piece of celery. Yeah, that's the sound. Maybe Wilson's nickname should be Crunch? Certainly describes the hits and the punches.

    Legislating Tom Wilson, Act XXVI. Defenseless doesn't mean what he apparently thinks it means.

    If the Caps can draft another player even half the level of Wilson, but of the same ilk, every GMs head in the NHL would explode and it would be incredible to watch.

    How is it there are so many crybabies in hockey today?

    Thankfully most are in the media and supporting/coaching staff, not on the ice.

    But still, wtf

    Incredible how they somehow spinned this so that Wilson still comes up as the bad guy.

    Parros should explain why this wasn't suggested after watching Marchand going after Eller about 5 months ago.

    I took note of the line "the league's most feared hitter" and then think about how some posters believe strongly that professional players aren't afraid of Wilson.

    It's up to GMs to bring this forward I believe but I also have to think Rutherford is at least partially behind this. It's the same shit he said re: Oleksiak.

    I'd hope at least that Parros of all people would be able to understand the difference between getting tuned the f*** up and being sucker-punched or jumped. There's no way in hell a willing participant not being able to get a punch should remotely equate to supplement discipline. Might as well take it out of the game entirely if such absurdities are considered. Sorry old chap, let me let you get a swing in. GTFOH!
