I think we’ll be seeing another Tom Wilson suspension coming. He punched Buchnevich in the head on the ice then a huge brawl ensued. He is such a piece of garbage.
He got a double minor for roughing (one for the actions against Buchnevich and one for the actions against Panera) and a 10-minute misconduct. Good job, good effort, refs.I think we’ll be seeing another Tom Wilson suspension coming. He punched Buchnevich in the head on the ice then a huge brawl ensued. He is such a piece of garbage.
He should be suspended for the Buch hit alone, but the actions on Panarin added in plus the fact Panarin never came back in should add on to the suspension.He got a double minor for roughing (one for the actions against Buchnevich and one for the actions against Panera) and a 10-minute misconduct.

i don’t know, I’d say when you drive someone’s head into the ice and then decide the only way to top that off is to punch him in the head while he’s lying there, that’s pretty egregious.In a vacuum it was a dirty play but low on the egregiousness factor IMO. That being Tom Wilson, well benefit of the doubt went out the window a while ago.
The idea that this was performance related is complete BS. This was the league appealing to a bad owner to get rid of the guys that sent an embarrassing statement out.Supposedly performance related and coincidental to the Wilson shit.
Either way, it's insane.
I'm not sure if it's two minutes in the box or five for using "logical" and "Dolan" in the same sentence.Chris Drury is going to be the interim president and full-time GM. If Davidson and Gorton were fired, why was someone working under them named their successor if they wanted to clean house? This just makes no sense whatsoever. They have close to $30 million in cap space and a very talented and young roster. Mind-boggling move.
Only logical thing is that Drury had an offer to go run another team and Dolan didn't want him to leave.
https://www.sbnation.com/2017/6/23/15860116/james-dolan-concert-nba-draft-knicks-ownerYeah but when has James Dolan ever done anything rash, unpredictable, and based on crappy logic?
I have a good buddy who plays guitar occasionally for Dolan’s fantasy-camp rock and roll band and attests to the highSounds like Dolan just got impatient. Davidson was hired in May of 2019. That's on the heels of their "we're tearing it down and rebuilding" letter to the fan base. All of a sudden he's gone and Gorton too. If the Wilson thing truly played no role, I think the likely story is Dolan got impatient with the rebuild, ordered Davidson to fire Gorton, Davidson refused so Dolan greased them both.Also, Drury's been a hot name for GM openings over the past few years. I believe he's turned down interview requests to stay with NYR. Maybe Dolan drank up the cool-aid and feared losing him and said fuck it.
Jaffe was on the radio this morning and said that the big Ahl goon has an injured hand.I have a good buddy who plays guitar occasionally for Dolan’s fantasy-camp rock and roll band and attests to the high
d-baggery Dolan demonstrates on a regular basis.
But my question today is why the Wolf Pack enforcer/DMan was not called up if only for self-respect purposes. And is there any connection between that non-decision, the egg on the league’s face (said egg thrown by NYR brass), and the relationship between Dolan and the league? Can’t plausibly just be a coincidence, can it?
He also said his goal is to get healthy and be ready to play hockey next season wherever that may be. That can not make Sabres fans very confident he will be there next year.I really do feel for Sabres fans.
Seems like an overpay for a guy coming off his ELC swayed by a PDO-inflated +/-; for context, it's an extra year and > 2x AAV Grzelcyk's second contract.In former Bruins farmhand news.....
