Wilson Suspended 20 Games

Recommended Posts

When you celebrate your new contract by forfeiting more than a quarter of your annual salary.

Even funnier, his contract this year was mostly paid out in a signing bonus.. and by mostly, I mean almost entirely. 5M bonus, 1.1M season salary. He might actually owe the league money after that 

 

Tom Wilson will forfeit an astounding $1,260,162.20 in salary as a result of his 20-game suspension. Pending an inevitable appeal, of course.

No.

Hmm, too bad. 

 

It can happen in soccer. Don't agree with what the league gives you as suspension, you can fight it (even in court) but chances are that the suspension the league initially suggested, will end up being higher

Commissioner Gary Bettman upheld Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson’s 20-game suspension for an illegal check to the head of St. Louis Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist.

Bettman released a 31 page report on his decision.

Wilson's suspension being reduced is a clear symptom of the NHL's shitty and inconsistent supplementary discipline. 

I would argue that it is next to impossible for any fair-minded factfinder to find that any NHL-mandated suspension is neither arbitrary nor illogical since they're so inconsistent.

Bettman is a lawyer; he knows this, so why does he allow it to keep happening?
