Video- Tom Wilson Is The Topic Of Discussion

A recommended watch, it is after all our game.

via Sportsnet,

The Hockey Night in Canada panel discuss the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals aftermath, and was what Tom Wilson did acceptable in the NHL anymore.

Nicolas Aube-Kubel ended up in a knee on knee with Wilson who took the worst of it. Didn’t look as predatory on either side as some you see.
But with Wilson you can never rule it out.
And in this context you have to wonder if Aube-Kubel tried a little less
to avoid that contact.

Flyers and Pens and Rangers and Isles and Devils fans
are holding hands and singing “We are the World”
Dogs and cats are making plans to elope to Aruba.
Every US mint but DC is rushing into a production a commemorative
Nicolas Aube-Kubel coin.

Ultimately it may be players who speak most loudly on the ice
re: what they think about Wilson’s behavior and how badly the DoPS keeps enabling it. Btw, Brandon Carlo was just cleared to return. But how much closer is he to an early retirement than just a few months back?

I tweeted out the injury to Wilson, but if you don’t use Twitter, here it is.

good back and forth, but I think Bieksa loses the debate.  Macleans ending comment about even a reeves not being able to police wilson says it all about supplemental discipline.  Even one game keeps the rematch much less about wilson and more about hockey.  In the end I have no faith that the league will recognize that their choices on fighting/instigator penalties moved responsibility to the league, and when they abdicate the higher authority it will get ugly.  Hopefully this is a wake up call and they can adjust, or we will watch a death, or crippling live,
I have worked retail for many years.  One of the things that I do is a “what is the upside/downside of a situation.”  If the downside is bad (Panarin having a serious head trauma) is much worse than an upside (wilson may not have broken a rule) I manage for the downside.  Saves a whole bunch of “OH SHIT” moments.
