“No one can touch your star player, that’s been a rule for years.” I think that dude thinks it’s an actual rule.

Quick top story on Get Up this morning, before they quickly returned to their comfort zone of Aaron Rodgers discussion.
Hell, look at this thread. We're on page 7. The Bruins traded for a former MVP and that thread got to page 3.

The question is if the shenanigans is worth the extra eyes and if the gonnery being the main attraction is a good thing in the long run. They got a lot of extra eyes last night but at the same time a top 10 player in the game (Artemi Panarin) was not able to play due to an injury suffered in the previous games shenanigans.

I just hope Tom is ok after suffering such a grievous and devastating upper body injury last night that prevented him from finishing the game.

Or as one clever twitterer said, “I didn’t know his ***** was located so high on his body”.

Absolutely not. The fact that this game in all likelihood attracted more eyeballs than any McDavid game maybe ever is everything that's wrong with the NHL.

Yes Buch 100% deserves a suspension. Sadly, his retaliation was probably avoidable if DoPS just did their job.

I don't think so; the Wensink game was Dec of 1977, the record brawl was in Feb of 1981 and Wensink was no longer on the Bruins.
This is correct. I started watching the Bs in '78-'79 and had no knowledge of the Wensink challenge. I do recall watching the 1981 bench-clearing brawl that spilled into the stands. There were tons of bench-clearing brawls in those days (which is kinda funny to think about now), but none like the 1981 one against Minnesota.

December 23, 1979, Mike Milbury beats a fan with his own shoe at MSG. Bruins won 4-3 btw. Per Wikipedia:

Milbury gained notoriety for what occurred following a 4–3 Bruins victory over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on December 23, 1979. During an on-ice fray between the players from both sides, a Rangers fan cut Stan Jonathan's face with a rolled-up program and grabbed his hockey stick. Terry O'Reilly climbed over the Plexiglas and went into the stands in pursuit of the offender, followed by Peter McNab and other teammates. Milbury, who had actually reached the visitors locker room when his teammates started going into the stands, raced back to join his colleagues in the brawl. He caught the unruly spectator, removed one of his shoes and, while holding the heel end, slapped him hard once with the sole side before being restrained. Subsequently, NHL president John Ziegler suspended O'Reilly for eight games and McNab and Milbury for six, with each being fined $500. This incident also resulted in the installation of higher glass panels enclosing rinks in hockey arenas.[5]

Bob Lobel played the whole thing to Pat Benatar's "hit me with your best shot."

Shame Sinden traded McCrimmon so early. He and Bourque were bookends for the 79 draft, and all we got was a good season from Pete Peeters.
The problem was the Bruins desperately needed a goalie at the time, and Peeters was truly outstanding one season, then competent, then sucked. Although to be fair he apparently suffered at least one concussion, and possibly more, during his second season guarding the net in Boston and apparently suffered from dizzy spells for a while after.

EDIT: The biggest problem with Peeters is that he sucked in the playoffs, including his Vezina season with Boston.

Fresh horseshit from Tom Wilson at the NSCSN website today:

“It seemed (like a) fairly routine hockey scrum to me, and I think that was kind of the feeling from both players in the box and then obviously it took on a new life after the game,” Wilson said. “Those scrums are chaotic and there’s lots of stuff going on, but I didn’t think too much of it at the time.”

Looks to me like Wilson was the one trying the cheap shot, too.

Good.

Fuck you.

Yep. Wilson made a play between his legs, and was left with his back leg straight and exposed at a weird angle. Aube-Kubel went to check and then peel off, but dont think he expected the leg stuck out. Cant really blame either of them.

Hopefully its ended Wilson's career.

Thats what you see in that? Jesus. His head was turned away
This play might indeed have been incidental, but I will always assume otherwise with him and always assume it’s his fault because he is a scum-sucking shitsack. All of you should feel bad for not blaming him. Listen to your hearts.

I am sad he’s ok. He deserves far worse.

Yeah that's just an unfortunate awkward play. I love to dump on Wilson but that's not his fault or Aube-Kubel's. Hopefully he is marginally effective in the playoffs with a lingering issue so he plays and hurts the team.
