Man, Tom Wilson just can't help himself.

He's not just a goon, but he undermines his actual ability when he pulls stupid shit like this.

He should be out for awhile. But it's the NHL, and they don't care about protecting their stars, so he'll probably end up with a small fine or something.

Sickening.

Play f***ing hockey, not whatever stupid shit this is.

Wilson was suspended earlier this season.

Haven't read this yet but am about to:

Enough is enough. Tom Wilson should be banned for the rest of the season and the playoffs.

Never mind. I hadn't seen this.

Pathetic.

Agreed.  He shouldn't be in the league.

That was a puke move by Wilson.

As mentioned before, I grew up with "caveman hockey", but punching a guy in the back of the head like that is something else.

A crummy $5K fine is pretty weak. With the Rangers out of the playoff picture, I wonder what happens on Wednesday.

Yup.

Look, IMO, the NFL goes a bit too far in protecting QBs. Not much, as they're the moneymakers, but a bit. IMO they could protect some running backs a bit more, too.

But the NHL almost encourages the opposite to happen. They almost embrace and encourage the thuggery. The bigger the name they take out, the better.

When the NHL realizes that fewer and fewer people are going to see people running around, and they'd love to see some SKILLED players making AWESOME plays, we'll begin to see a change.

But that feels like it's still a decade or two away sometimes.

They're still probably joking about concussions internally.

This.  Listen, I enjoy a good hard physically played game, but when you see guys on the ice making plays that are just so pretty, it makes the game so much more enjoyable to watch.

   I like how the Rangers publicly called out for the resignation of Parros. 

  As for Wilson, the fine is laughable.  The shot to the face while the guy was down was bad enough, but to keep going on Panarin for defending a teammate is just a joke.

  I find it somewhat hypocritical he gets a 5K fine, while Zack Kassian got five games or so for ragdolling Tkachuk.

And Gostisbehere gets a hearing.

The NHL has always been particularly funny about the people it picks for that job. 

Of course, Parros was an enforcer in his playing career with 36 points and 1,092 PIM over 474 games. The guys that preceded Parros were Stephane Quintal and Brendan Shanahan. Both notorious rough players.

   It's like a DOPS puts on a blindfold, and then launches a dart onto a screen of the nights infractions.

 

  If Parros gets the sack ( that's pretty much an opinion call, it's a shit job anyway), who gets it next?  Matt Cooke, Chris Pronger, or Dale Hunter?

  Maybe it's time for the  league to hire someone from the opposite side of the spectrum, like someone who's had to retire due to injury.  Possibly someone like an Adam Deadmarsh, or even Marc Savard.

I did, too, but now they’re apparently trying to walk it back and scrambling to save face.

Deservedly so. Wilson should have gotten one, too, and suspended.

Just to play a little devil’s advocate, could their line of thinking be to hire these types of guys because they “understand” how to be rough without crossing the line? Or that they understand the difference between being physical and having intent to injure?

Not saying I agree with it or believe it, but I’m just trying to see it from a different perspective.

Yeah. I didn't record the first part of the game tonight, but someone told me there were multiple fights.

Thanks. 100 penalty minutes.

And of course f***ing Keith Jones thinks "credit to the players" for handling this, etc. Said "this would have happened even if Tom Wilson had been suspended for a game." Bullshit.

Poorly handled by NHL. Wilson should have been fined heavily and suspended. They left the Rangers no choice tonight. 

I am a NYR fan. But man this team is soft. That is why Davidson and Gorton were fired. Quinn is next. Must get tougher in offseason.

    • A poll would be nice for this topic. Mine is standard 45.5”.
    • That's why I've got Nickent 3DX Hybrid irons, I have a 10 iron which works for me. Most sets of irons have 8" or more of loft gap between the 9 and the wedge, it's ok if your good enough to hit a half'ish or climb into the Sandiron but I'm not. I'm not too bad hitting a strong 9 8 7 etc but the wedges I'm more likely to hit skinny or fat, I think why there is so many wedges is all about the Money...
    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.
