Or just anyone at all connected to the NHL or NHLPA and its members.

Its fine, if you want me to do it, I'll do it. Between work and being married and having a teenager, I am used to people being annoyed with me all the time and it barely phases me, so I am uniquely qualified for a job where all of the players would hate me. 

Instead of just Zacha hating me, as things stand now.

for the first time in my life I will say this:

bravo to the New York Rangers for that statement they just put out. publicly calling for George Parros’ head. I’ve never seen a team do something like that in professional sports and it absolutely needed to happen.

Yes it did. He didn’t do his job. If he said the wrong thing about the wrong person on Twitter he would have been immediately fired, but not for being piss poor at his job?

there has never been more proof to me about how brain dead the DoPS is than when they hired a former goon, who is best friends with several current goons (he was a groomsman at Tom Wilson’s wedding for fvcks sake!) as their head of player safety. 

letting the inmates run the asylum. hope he’s gone, tonight.

He was in his wedding party? That’s fvcking hysterical. He should clearly be fired.

Same. Hope they never win another game BUT, I admire the hell outta having the balls to send that out. Even though it will have the same impact as pissing into a running fan.

saw that on reddit so take it with a grain of salt but I do know he’s very close with several different nhl goons.

i disagree. this is relatively unprecedented in sports and I think it’ll start to rattle some cages. the rangers are a cash cow; i don’t think the league can really go after them too hard without worrying about the ramifications.

i would love a few other nhl organizations to step up and say something similar, or just tweet in agreement.

When other teams publicly announce their support of sh!tcanning, I will fully agree with you that in the end the result was more meaningful to the rangers than pissing into the wind albeit while showing support for their own players.

I don't expect in for the league to go after them other than probably a meaningless fine, what I do expect is full on status quo with the league changing nothing at all.

I do. I don't care what team a player is on, no one deserves to potentially have their neck broken on a play like that. It looked like he came down with his stick on the back of the guy's neck. 

Just now seeing what transpired yesterday...it's insane.  As much as I hate the Rangers, and I do with a passion just as much as the next Devils fan, what Wilson did is reprehensible. I've said it several times in the recent past, particularly when he's played against us and exhibited similar sh!tty acts, but he is a straight up goon who is the beneficiary of some talented linemates and teammates, and he showed his true self last night.  I don't know if he apologized and I'm definitely someone who believes in forgiveness and second chances, but it's hard to come back from what he did last night.  Punching a guy's head while he's on the ground and has his back turned towards you is pathetic and cowardly.   The guy should be suspended for a long, long time, and frankly, if he does something similar ever again, whether it's tomorrow or 10 seasons from now, he should be banned for life.  It's literally just a matter of time before his reckless behavior hurts someone and injures them permanently. I'm a staunch believer in keeping fighting and physicality in hockey, but what he did last night was outside the rules of the game and deserves not only a 5 minute major but a much harsher and stricter punishment to fit the crime.

I'm a huge Boomer and Gio fan and I hope the Isles and Caps meet in the playoffs so Matty Mart (Boomer's son in law) can whoop the sh!t out of him. It will be a long time coming and very deserved.

fvck the Rags for eternity, but they're 1000% right on that.  George Parros should be fired yesterday.

I believe he has more fines/suspensions than seasons played. 

Though the first one, for embellishment, probably is a different thing.

It's sort of amazing how they go backwards, after having suspended him 5 times in a row, to just fining him - especially from an act that seems just as dangerous, if not more, than some of his previous acts.

Soapbox rant here:

The incident allegedly happened in 2017. I’m not debating the merits of the victim or the allegations.

What I am going to stress the ever living sh!t out of is REPORT THINGS. I stress this to my airmen, I stressed it to my students, I will stress it to my boys when they are old enough to understand. Report something when it happens so you, the victim, can be protected. Tell someone, anyone you trust, so you (the victim) have support from at least one other human than can go back and say “yeah, it did happen” and can support you through an absolutely brutal time where you feel like you have no one to trust.

i 100% know it’s easier said than done, but victims need all the help they can get, so parents, teach your kiddos to be the advocate for helping, or even be it yourself. Be the person someone can go to and say “this happened to me, I need help.”

At the minimum, it’ll help cut down the time from incident to reporting.

(that, and teach your kids respect, cause lord knows my boys are in deep sh!t if I ever hear them do anything disrespectful)

Made me look through their stats for the year and wow, Lafreniere had some resurgence after being absent for a long time. Actually hit double digits in goals (10) and 9 assists with 3 games left. 

Kakko, on the other hand, has one less goal and one less assist in his second season. Maybe he will improve with age, or maybe he’s a third liner.

I didn't see that one coming. I thought they were moving in the right direction

It is a bit of a head scratcher.
