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.

You don't think like 98% of Bruins and Caps fans love Wilson and Marchand?

Every player in the league wants Tom Wilson on their team because it's the only way those players can ensure that their heads won't be cracked open like an egg on the ice by Tom Wilson

Glad the Rangers are going after the league and Parros. No suspension for a guy with Wilson’s history for that play is a joke.

Tom Wilson has had the low cunning to become a good player too which gives him extra leeway from the league. If he was just some poo poo 4th liner that's definitely a suspension.

The thing is that Wilson is a good hockey player and when he stays behind the line he plays a tough style and that all is fine.

But he intentionally crosses that line frequently to injure other players and then everyone hems and haws and says "yeah but he's a good player everyone would love to have him" and just use that to excuse him being a piece of poo poo that hides behind the league rules to intentionally injure other players.

Saying "but I'd like to have him on our team" is just the weakest excusing of his actions

The league also needs to stop hiring former players for this DoPS role since it just means a bunch of guys groomed to think this poo poo is normal

e: and again, seriously the league could have just suspended Wilson for the rest of the regular season and it would have been meaningless for the Caps and a few people would point that out but most people would just say "well he got suspended what more do you want?" and that would be that. But a paltry fine is just making it apparent how broken their discipline system is.

If I were a player I’d want him on my team too. The league is too maliciously incompetent to protect players and some team is going to keep signing him so the only safe zone is being on his team.

I'm not trolling when I say I don't think Wilson did anything especially bad yesterday. Leaning on Buchnevich and giving him the business while he was pinned was scummy for sure, but didn't add up to much. Panarin had a bad outcome for losing a grapple with a much stronger guy whose back he jumped on. Slow-mo makes everything look absurdly intentional but I don't think Wilson really grabbed his hair or meant to brain him when slamming him down. I sincerely think Wilson has done things a million times worse, with real malice, and I think that really distorts how people see his actions now and creates these moral panic type things. On the other hand, it's fair to say he earned his reputation, so what are you gonna do?

some dudes will push him in a scrum, wilson will say something mean, the refs will preemptively penalize wilson and other guy and that will be the end of it
