Can the NHL just throw Wilson out of the NHL already? He adds nothing to the game.
There's going over the limit and there's being mentally unstable. Wilson needs actual psychiatric help that goes beyond hockey. He doesn't know when to shut it off.
Woke up thinking it was April 1st for a moment.
This just in: Tom Wilson still a dirty player who should've been suspended, same as last night.
You can call Wilson all the names you want but he brings the clicks
The fact that you said he got penalized four minutes for roughing says enough - he broke a rule [Rule 51.1]. Why do any rules need to be changed when he already broke a rule???
Could also hit him with Aggressor [Rule 46.2] ruling. Both roughing and aggressing have been the basis of suspensions before, and the NHL rulebook even explicitly says, DoPS does not even need a penalty to take supplemental discipline - their ruling can be supplemental to any penalties on the ice, or can even supersede/contradict any previous calls [Rule 28].
$5000 is not even the max fine they could have given him. If they could've been bothered to pick up the phone and offer him a telephone hearing, they could have fined him double that [CBA 18.7 (b), (d)].
To say they would need to make up a rule, change the rules, or that that was all they could have done is asinine.
If only what Wilson meant by "peers" included opponents.
Wilson is good for business.
A rival getting a Wilson clone would be even better for business. I wish the Pens still had Reaves. I loved seeing him make Wilson his bitch.
The hit by Ghostisbere tonight was a thousand times worse than what Tom Wilson did.
Driving people to outrage and causing huge discussions about the problems he creates is not a positive.
Imagine defending this lunacy
Did Panarin at least get a penalty?
That's why it was a fine and no suspension. The NHL knows under-penalizing him at this point would bring a lot of attention, which equals clicks and add revenue with them. No doubt NHL head office put pressure on DOPS to make this decision for this reason.
We’re on part 5 already? Damn!
I was slammed at work today and didn’t check in on this. Crazy.
Then punish him.
It does not excuse Wilson.
Plus, Wilson's lengthy history and reputation should hold him to a different standard and escalate any discipline against him
He got a 2min roughing penalty
Wilson is single handedly responsible for calls to resurrect the once extinct “goon” or “enforcer”.
Parros is just a scapegoat, a cardboard punching bag. He has no authority or control.
Welp, you just ruined his uneducated argument.
Now that’s funny!!
That’s what it’s all about…
"Horrifying act of violence." Pretty embarrassing statement by NYR. Sure he probably should have gotten a game or two given our brand new culture of extreme sensitivity, but no need to let everyone see just how shook Wilson got you.
That’s just it, a lot of whataboutism over the past 24 hours. This sequence needs judged in the Tom Wilson vacuum. At any point the NHL could change it’s stance and start protecting it’s star players, setting a precedent moving forward, but they didn’t.
This is true. At heart this is an ownership issue.
You can be damned sure Parros didn’t go rogue here. This is about a lack of institutional commitment from the top down, which is why it has been a persistent problem for some 50 years now.
