    So right now he is suspended but with how rapid fire he has been collecting them its worth asking. Also for conversation sake, if this turns out to be his lasts suspension does it prove that longer suspension work while shorter ones don't?

    I didn't see the option for "what kind of dumbass question is that? Of course he will", so I just picked yes.

    Yes, because he's a dumb truck who doesn't think there's anything wrong with his hits, so he'll keep making them.

    I voted no
    But if it turns out yes - i can see them making an example out of him, and possibly even doing a season long, or life-ban. Enough is enough.

    It depends on what he gets suspended for. They made it clear he got 20 games for getting 3 suspensions for the same thing. He had a 4th suspension but it was for something different. If he gets another suspension for hitting the head this season they made it clear they will throw the book at him and rightfully so. But if he gets one for boarding or a late hit it will probably only be a 2-5 game suspension.

    No self control. The fact that he’s appealing this one tells me he doesn’t understand what he’s doing wrong

    I think he finishes the season with less edge than he normally plays with, 20 games is huge. But if he does I wouldn't put it past them to suspend him 40-82 depending on if it's a hit to the head or not.

    If he goes the rest of his career never getting suspended is that evidence that 1-2 game suspensions are meaningless and longer suspensions work to change behavior?

    If he gets suspended again in this season will it prove that suspensions will never work as a deterrent?

    As much as I think Wilson has been a danger to others, I don't think that's what that means. The guy wants to play, and has an option for a remedy available through him through his player union. I doubt it means he's raring to get back on the ice to knock in more skulls.

    He probably didn't want to get suspended after the last time either

    He was suspened 4 times in less then calendar year.... did he want to be suspended after all of those? If you believe this one is different because of the length that goes to my other question. If the longer suspension is going to get him to stop being a dork then should they hand out long suspensions sooner to player who are repeat offenders?

    If he gets suspended again regardless of this appeal it'll be in the 30+ game range, so no

    If you are arguing that the longer suspension works as a deterrent then shouldn't longer suspensions be handed out sooner to repeat offenders?
