    Hyman given 2 games

    I really don’t understand how someone can honestly be defending an actual hit to the head and at the same time agree with a 2 game suspension for interference on someone with no history when 2 guys with history just did the same thing with no suspension...

    I don’t like it... obviously

    Trade Gardiner? Or keep him for playoffs?

    Yep should be a good card. I looked for tickets the other day but they’re expensive as hell. I’m also sick now so glad I didn’t grab any

    When did “he didn’t have to hit him” or “he could have avoided him” start becoming a thing? Theres nothing wrong with this hit other than it being a bit late. Wilson was hurt because he’s an idiot with his chin strap too loose like a lot of guys and his lid comes off before he hits his head on the ice.

    We are legitimate Stanley cup contenders. We are not trading away core players, and yes gardiner is a core player

    It was incidental contact at the very most. That was not in any way a body check or intentional contact with Seney. I’m not defending Wilson, I don’t really give a shit about Tom Wilson tbh. I am arguing against a witch hunt because there is no line to where it stops. A penalty is a penalty, a non-penalty is a non-penalty and that play for 90% of the league is a non-call in game never mind a suspension.

    I’m not talking in circles at all... you incorrectly keep calling this a predatory hit when it wasn’t. Most players get 0 for that... it was called in real time because Seney was hurt and because it was Wilson... which isn’t right but I get it. Supplementary discipline as well though? Absurd No it still works perfectly... you’re confusing the amount of punishment with changing the law/rules. The same person who runs red lights all the time does not suddenly get punished for running a yellow.

    The red light analogy is dead on actually, you want to change the rules for a player based on his past which is absurd. He bumped him... that type of collision happens all the time. Size difference exaggerates the impact. Right so let’s start suspending playing for “slaps to the back of the ear” because they have wound up full throttle and hit someone with a closed fist before then? Wilson didn’t blindside him... they collided. No im just not being a complete tool about this play because it’s Tom Wilson. There is a reason numerous NHL players have no issue with this and had an issue with the suspension earlier in the year on Petersson. Calls have to be consistent... if that’s a suspension for Wilson it’s a suspension for literally every other player in the league. The length of the suspension can differ with history, not whether the act is suspendable or not

    Why is the onus entirely on him to avoid contact? This is the separation in standards from the player being who he is and the size difference being what it is. Wilson has no more onus to avoid "contact" (not a body check) than Seney does to avoid Wilson. If the roles are reversed, Wilson doesn't move and nobody is even questioning Seney for a dirty play.

    You can say it all you'd like, you're wrong though. If the law/rule is you cannot run a red light and someone has a history of running red lights, going through a yellow isn't suddenly illegal. This play is not an illegal play for anybody in the league, but you want to suspend Wilson because he's Wilson which is just a ridiculous suggestion really. If Mitch Marner bumped into a player in an identical play, he's likely bouncing off the player and flying himself instead because of his size and the fact that he (aka Wilson) didn't brace for a collision of any kind. That is literally all that happened... he didn't throw his shoulder, weight, etc. into Seney at all.

    You can't take the same act and say because it's Wilson it deserves a suspension but if it was anyone else they wouldn't... it doesn't (and shouldn't ever) work that way. As a repeat offender the punishment grows, whether the act should be punishable doesn't change. This just isn't a dirty play... it's a much larger guy bumping into a much smaller guy and the smaller guy feeling it. Wilson doesn't even initiate contact here... he doesn't come across the ice looking for the hit or throw any more force that he was almost moving with into him. This uproar over the hit really seems to be entirely because it's Wilson and not due to the hit itself.

    That really wasn’t a hit... that’s a much bigger guy clipping into a smaller guy

    I don’t feel like this was that dirty tbh
