Long live the king
Man, I just watched the incident for the first time and it is so incredibly a nothing burger. I was expecting a Hulk-Loki floor slam scenario with the level of uproar.
All this Karenage is hilarious.
And now the word is Panarin has a LOWER BODY injury, which means this crap about TW ruining him is bullshit. IMO this is probably when it happened:
Bottom of the pile, slides out awkwardly.
Nothing to do with TW trying to kill him by slamming his face into the ice, or whatever.
NYR must have been aware this was a lower body injury and not a result of TW's actions when they made that misleading tweet about a season ending injury.
Just another day in America's new Post-Fact Society.
the "season-ending injury" is so hyperbolic when they literally have three games left. He would be day to day if this happened earlier in the year.
I had to call out sick because I picked up my daughter's daycare cold. THIS IS A WEDNESDAY-ENDING ILLNESS!
You sir have my vote for playoff avatar.
Wilson's "dangerous and reckless actions caused an injury to Artemi Panarin that will prevent him from playing again this season"
So Wilson is to blame for Panarin being 4th man in, and then his own teammates and the refs piling on top of him as he lost his balance.
NYR should be sued over this.
That's not new news, they announced LBI I believe later the night of the game or the next morning (obv. not attached to the "season ending injury" announcement)
Love Wilson but IMO he crossed a bit of a line there. You could see he was furious after his penalty which lead to a goal and that's what led to what we saw. I know he reacted to Vitek being hit but still you shouldn't punch a guy while his down. I'm sure he would be first to admit a mistake there. This has blown way off though. Panarin jumping on his back while he's engaged with someone else is also scary and could end badly and that's what people fail to see.
Either way he got a fine, time to move on.
Without doing the actual math here I'm gonna say that 80% of those responses indicate actual hockey pros think Willy maybe went a little too far but was overall not in the wrong. A nice contradiction to the "everyone in the world agrees, except Caps fans" narrative. The comments on the league are spot on, and of course both folks who were asked about whether teams would want him if he were available said, basically, "yes, every team."
As you should be...
However, I should point out that this isn't even new info. It was noted the day of the incident and utterly ignored. It's likely a re-injury of the issue that almost kept him out of that game to begin with, which is why the coach said he fine as regards the scrum. The whole story is a fiction created by the anti-Wilson crowd.
It would appear Tom Wilson generates quite the click count based on all of the Content.
That’s a horrifying understatement.
The Rags essentially lying in an effort to get one man fired from DPOS and hurt another team.
Utter scumbag behavior and depressingly mainstream.
I’m having an entertaining time with some joker who is making a point, specific to the Crosby/konecny deal, that it was ok because Crosby has a neck issue and konecny was hanging on his neck.
Regardless of if it was the shoulder or the back of head, punching a guy who is underneath you facing the ice is cheap.
Mind you, it was equally cheap when Price did that to Palmieri and people praised him for it. I’m not a fan of punching a defenseless player lying down on the ice.
Sure. And he got fined for it and a 10 minute misconduct.
Tom Wilson just destroyed the entire organization
The entire NYI organization
