:suspicious: Oh look, the Penguins must be on top of the standings if Baldy is making an appearance.

Who other than Ryan Reaves has ever beaten Wilson in a fight? Reaves is a 5-6 goal per year guy whose only job is to fight.
Dalton Prout
Matt Martin
Brendan Lemieux X2 (at least)
Chris Stewart - the guy who busted his face open in the pic I posted
Erik Gubrandson
Ross Johnston
Chara

Just to name a few.

Please note that I could have been a real ass and rubbed in Washington's abysmal 2-6 record versus the Pens this season, but I didn't. :loser:
:lol: Glad you're not a boxing judge in Vegas

There are thugs that don't fight. There are fighters that aren't thugs. Somebody whose only job is to antagonize and fight is generally a thug (Reaves). Then you have guys that score 20+ goals, have serious hockey skills, are your go to on the PK, but who can also hit and fight (Wilson). There really are few guys like Wilson who have all of the above attributes. Best example is Brady Tkachuk. He leads the league in fighting majors this year. He also has 17 goals and 18 assists. His numbers would be even better if he weren't on Ottawa.

Player: Fights - Goals
Brady Tkachuk: 7 - 17
Austin Watson: 6 -3
Nicolas Deslauriers: 5 - 5
Brenden Dillon: 5 - 2
Marcus Foligno: 5 -10
John Hayden: 5 - 2
Zack MacEwen: 5 - 1
Brendan Smith: 5 - 5
Tom Wilson: 4 - 13 (don't forget he missed several games for a crappy suspension)

If Wilson isn't a thug, what is he? He isn't a fighter. Fighters don't cheapshot opponents who are facedown on the ice in the back of the head (helmet or not). Fighters also don't throw helmetless players to ice.

So he's talented. Albert Haynesworth was a talented football player but that didn't change the fact that he was also a thug. Wilson is a hockey version of Haynesworth, Ndamukong Suh or Vontaze Burfict.

Heck, Wilson is lucky the guy he pulled the hair and then body slammed to the ice wasn't seriously injured - that's the kind of stuff that crosses the line from sports and enters the realm of law enforcement. It wouldn't have been unheard of to be arrested for his actions (not the cheapshot to the back of the guys head on the ice, that's just a cheap sucker punch but totally within the scope of the game). Lucky for him they aren't playing in Canada this year, because they do arrest players for that kind of crossing the line.

Your NHL thread had 20 posts in almost 4 months. I posted a video of that thug and there are 46 posts in 3 days. My tiresome bait has sparked a lot of discussion.

What's the breakdown of pro vs. anti Wilson support for Capitals fans compared to non-Capitals fans?

I know Clinton Yates wasn't happy with Wilson.

The only ones chiming in are Caps fans, Rangers fans and Penguins fans. I'll let you guess how those groups view it. ;)

Wilson was fined $5000 for punch to Buchnevich. No suspension. No major penalty. Rangers got a much bigger fine for calling out the NHL. Should tell you who is on the right side of this.
“This all comes from poking at the goaltender, after he makes a save,” he said. “If you’ve noticed, and I’m sure you did, and the rest of the people should notice, Tom Wilson never took his gloves off. If you want to hurt somebody, you take your gloves off. If he took his gloves off, it would be a different story.

“And he did not hit (Buchnevich) on the back of the head, he hit him on the shoulders. I’ve watched it in slow motion about five times.

“That’s why (Wilson) made fun of it in the penalty box. He thought it was nothing, because he didn’t try to hurt him.

“You know, when you jump on a guy’s back, I don’t care what’s happening, you’re looking for trouble. You don’t fool around with guys like that. I thought Wilson was pretty good. He didn’t take his gloves off, he didn’t try to really hurt him, because if he wanted to hurt him, he could have hurt him.”

Cherry thought the Rangers embarrassed themselves with their reactions to the incident and the ruling.

He was right.

How the heck does that guy know what Wilson was thinking in the box? Is he a telepath? Or did Wilson spin him a story so he wouldn't look like as big of a clown?

IMO that I've never heard of him means nobody around here values his opinion on the Caps or hockey.

No, but they do love to suspend Wilson. The easy thing would have been to suspend him, agreed?
