This is what happens when you disrespect Cam Neely



I know people will laugh at the "histrionics" here and Larry Brooks is not a very credible person in alot of cases except for when it comes to his connections on the New York sports scene, but Panarin got the side of his *unhelmeted* head literally bounced off the ice by Wilson, he could have actually died in circumstances very similar to that with worse luck.

If I was the Rangersí owner and had more money than I and my entire lineage could conceivably spend in all our lifetimes, I would take this big olí powder keg and toss a lit match into it. Iíd tell my remaining players that I would cover their fines and continue to pay their salaries during any suspensions they may receive due to any offense committed in the upcoming Rangers/Caps game, and just hope they take the bait and set off the brawl to end all brawls during the NHLís precious nationally televised game. Just vicious, unrepentant violence, like the Isles/Pens game a decade ago.

I wonder what the NHLís advertisers would think about such barbarity being broadcast live to all corners of the world under the leagueís banner? Gee, might either of the two networks that just signed massive TV deals with the NHL have something to say about what sort of content theyíll be showing and paying for? Makes you think.

Best part of this whole mess is a simple suspension, even a weak one, would have been enough to shut most people up and at least avoid a team actively calling for the removal of the head of the DoPS. As if itís hard to be a little strict when it comes to punishing Wilson.

If the DOPS was actually evil, their whole playbook would be years of lowering expectations so when they give Wilson three games everyone goes "wow that's more than I expected"

but they're just very very stupid and incompetent.

listen i love Panarin, he's the most fun Ranger to watch in like twenty years along with Zuke and Fox and 05-06 Jagr, but Tom Wilson is good for the NHL. i know i'm probably in the minority but there's an easy solution to this via Chris Kreider and Samsonov's knee, Mason Geertsen, telling tim gettinger/brendan smith/julien gauthier/will cuylle/braden schneider/paul thompso/etc

tomorrow night should look like Islanders-Pens. i get this is the New NHL but especially with the expanded taxi squad we should always have 3-4 idiots ready to injure people

I hope everyone remembers this incident in the future and stops calling Brad Marchand (who by the way is a good boy and hasn't been suspended since 2018) the dirtiest player in the league

Does punching Scott Harrington in the back of the head while he was on his knees facing away from Marchand and after play had been blown dead but not getting caught give him brownie points?

we have a guy who's 6'4", still one of the fastest players in the league, and has been on good behavior so he won't get too long of a ban, and we have casus belli. why isn't this being planned:

There are players who can be plucky or pests and fit the bill he's describing without being shitheads. Guys who piss you off unless they're on your team, at which point you love them. Patric Hornqvist and Scott Hartnell are examples.

Tom Wilson and Brad Marchand are not.
