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.

    • This is a pet peeve of mine too. I love par 5s where driving is made dangerous like you said. Especially combined with green complexes that make running it up with a wood dangerous but are relatively receptive to a hybrid or long iron approach. Fully eliminating the driver landing area and forcing every single player to play the hole the same way is just lazy design and makes for boring holes.  
    • Day 34 (5/6/21) - Hit a small bucket at the range today, about 1/3 each wedges (full swing motion), hybrids and Driver. After striking the  first couple of wedges really near the hosel, I placed my Driver headcover about 2" outside the target line, which definitely helped me to move the strike closer to the center of the face. Low point control was generally good, as were distance and direction. Drivers were pretty solid, with better trajectory than I have been hitting and mostly with a gentle draw. The only exception was a fade which would have worked OK. Hybrids were a problem as I had poor low point control and either hit fat or thin, resulting in poor distance and trajectory. Low point control with my hybrids will be a priority. 
    • I really can't think of disliking courses to a point of calling them the worst I have played from a design POV. Like few other post's above it is conditioning that can make me to not ever want to come back.   I've played a course where the 'greens' are simply tighter cut grass here locally (not sure worth mentioning the name. They weren't pretending to be anything better - $9 for the round). But of course, it was clear after the first hole that I had overpayed.. lol.  Although @mattm16, I would feel like an absolutely spoilt brat complaining about anything I've ever played looking at your 'course' pics. hah  
    • I'm not a fan of Pete Dye courses either, but Mike Strantz is the one I like the least, from a design perspective. 
    • I don't like courses that have a creek or hazard that spans like 250-280 off the tee, especially when its on a par 5.  My preference is to at least have the option to hit driver, totally fine if the landing area at 270 or whatever narrows or is tree lined or bunkers or something, but at least let it be an option, don't force me to lay up to 240 off the tee on a 525-550 yd par 5. There are at least 2 courses around me that have multiple of those holes and I steer away from those courses when possible. There is a 3rd course that has 2 holes like that too but those par 5s are shorter, more around the 500 yd mark, maybe even high 400s depending on where the tees are located so they're still reachable with 2 really good shots.
