    Bob Probert died in 2010 at the age of 45.

    A lot of these fighters will die at an early age. :(

    All, I've moved the CTE discussion to the NHL thread. This is a Willy discussion thread.

    Where’d you buy it from? I’m looking at a fresh jersey but obviously needs to ship internationally

    Yeah, this caught my attention also: "I think if he played a little smarter, he’d be even better.”

    Didn't catch this year at all, eh Ryan?

    Sometimes it's hard to admit when a guy surpasses you in every way.

    I like what Carrick said.... he glides with the best of them. I guess that is an aspect of skating most/all take for granted. That is the first time I have heard gliding discussed.

    If the Caps strike on another player with even half the capability of Wilson, the rest of the NHL will explode. Each team has been trying to find one for years - especially our rivals - and they continue to strike out. We HIT GOLD. Having said that, I'd honestly love to grab another young beast that is even half the player Wilson is - of the same mold - and develop him, while Tom is still young and in his prime years. Heck, even someone like Kassian would just be a nightmare for the rest of the NHL.

    Honestly I don’t like Wilson fighting anymore. He’s gotten much better at it and probably too good. He is really hurting fools and it’s not great to see knowing what we know now about head injuries. Every time he drops the gloves I get worried for the opposing player.

    A guy who's got one coming to him argues for a kinder, gentler Tom Wilson? I'm shocked.

    Another thing about Wilsom as a class act is that he always helps guys fall gently after knocking them out.

    One of my favorite players in a long time.
