    Why do people keep lying out their ass when there is clear video evidence?

    The rag clearly pitch forks and tries to kick the puck/goalie before hand. The punch is very clearly in reaction to the kick.

    How is Crobsy on the guys back literally pushing, dare I say slamming, his face multiple times into the ice some how not as bad?

    He punched a guy on the ice in the shoulder. I wouldn't say that was over the line that much.

    I can't wait for the NHL's reaction to this statement honestly. Like it's a legit test for Bettman's balls. Is he going to just stay quiet like a bitch or make it clear these stupid statements aint it and next time yalls asses getting f***in fined.

    They should get fined. 5k. lol. The awkward part is that NewYork is their best market. I'm more embarrassed for their fan base as clearly the ENTIRE organization lacks testosterone.

    What a dumb statement.

    Isn’t it 10k for coaches speaking out against the refs?

    The Alain Vigneault softness and playing the victim act certainly does seem to stick around teams even after he is gone.

    I’m shocked the league seemed to stay with in it’s previously set guard rails with Wilson. People seem to forget Domi going after Ekblad and Ritchie knocking out/dazing Roszival. A completely one sided fight with players being knocked down or knocked out/dazed is what gets a couple games. People are acting like this is when Thorton actually sucker punched Orpik, but in reality this is just barely “above” your average post whistle scrum around the goal.

    The optics are terrible - doesn't matter how you sell it. I mean I get it you're a radio guy but the whole world just saw Wilson acting like a gorilla trying to get laid...it's pathetic

    NY Karens hit job on the DoPS is so hyperbolic and badly written it’s arguably worse than TW’s roughing.

    I mean that's how I see it as well. And Panarin was the one who went after Wilson as the third man in. It's not like Wilson skated around the ice hunting down Panarin.

    What would you call Panarin then for jumping on another man's back? Is he trying to get laid as well? lol.

    Here's something that may not have been addressed on the main board: what did people WANT Tom Wilson to do when Panarin jumped on him? Walk away? Drop the gloves?

    Do they realize that TW actually going at 100% power against Panarin might have turned his brain to mush? LITERAL mush?

    IMO he got off light.

    That is basically my point to all of this. I’m a visual and facts person. It’s funny when people are acting like Wilson went all Kane and choked slammed someone out of now where, or Wilson acted worse than Thorton when he actually sucker punched Orpik.

    SSSHHH! Viewing the context of the whole situation is only used when Crosby needs to look like less of a piece of shit.

    "I'm going to jump on your back now Tom, and wrap my stick around your neck while you are wrestling with someone else. But because I am smaller don't you dare touch me, or I yell KAREN."

    Same thing on r/hockey as well. You'd think we could lock a few and move on at this point. Everything has been said at this point, just people sniping back at each other now.

    Can't wait for the game tonight just so we can get a fresh round of discourse

    Pretty sure that was me, trying to keep that shitshow going. It's hilarious watching people get all riled up. Guess Wilson lives in their collective heads rent-free.

    If this were the 80's this would be barely a roughing incident. But since the league as a whole has grown so incredibly soft...this one ray of sunshine of testosterone displayed in our game will get more attention then Matthews scoring 40 or McDavid getting 100 points. And EVERYONE is going to tune in to tonight.

    Oh. Wilson has been wearing an A on his sweater lately. He is recognized as Captain material. That means first by the players. About as far from pathetic as you get in the NHL
