It seems like Tom Wilson still hasn’t learnt his lesson.

 

 

He also injured Panarin who had to leave the game.

How this doesnt end up with a lengthy suspension is beyond me. Wilson purposely slammed Panarins head into the ice twice after doing the same to Buchnevich.

 

He pulled on Panarins hair too so you know he knew his helmet was off.

 

Its too bad. He is a talented player. Just a classless douche with no respect for the game though.

Tom Wilson has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for roughing Pavel Buchnevich.

Oh, I bet that hurts him.:rolleyes:

Does the league not feel embarrassed when they announce these kind of fines? There needs to be an overhaul to the Department of Player Safety structure.

that won't happen. That would take away a tool to help players on teams who are relatives of people working for the NHL front office. 

 

It is what it is, the NHL has two sets of rules for teams they like or don't. Its not the worst run league in the world but it has its ugly side.

The NHL doesn't even bother trying to hide the corruption anymore.  The only way they'll clean things up is when the league is named as a defendant for criminal negligence.

It's a sad reality, indeed.

Am I the only one who didn't have an issue with the Panarin part of this? Panarin engaged him, and was rag-dolled by a bigger/stronger player - it was his own fault. Mess with the bull, you get the horns.

 

That said, Wilson should absolutely have been suspended for punching Buchnevich in the head. He wasn't willingly engaged, and in a defenseless position.

He pulled his hair and slammed him down head first.

I don't have an issue with him doing it to panarin. Now pettersson on the other hand, I have an issue with that.
