Reading the Athletic’s piece on it now, I guess team account shit-posting was inevitable. I’m sure the comments on it will be great!

At this point, what is the NHL going to do about Wilson? He's a how-many-times repeat offender, he never learns, he never changes. Do they suspend him for the rest of the season? The entire playoffs?? Does it even matter to him?

What could he buy that would give him as much perverse joy as pulling an opponent down by the hair

Reading all the pieces on the Athletic today has just been disheartening. Just brain worms. Not sure how much more I can deal with the NHL at this point.

Let me tell you when I woke up this morning I couldn’t help but think to myself “now what does Matt Cooke think about all this?”

I've only read one but when I went to the front page, three of the top four articles in my feed were about it, and all of them had 190-500 comments.

Reading the "hockey experts" one
“It’s not like the old grudge days. We had a real tough guy and he fought a guy on the other team and I was like, ‘What was that all about?’ And he was like, ‘Oh he was a couple of years older than me when I went to my first junior camp when I was 15 and he was a real asshole and I always said if I ever got a chance …’ And I was like, ‘Seriously?’ So you don’t know any of that. But if you take it as a standalone it makes no sense.”
That's the long con alright

It was a weird piece, all of their initial reactions were "I didn't think it was so bad" and then they're all upset at DOPS for not doing more. Pretty sure every part of Hockey CultureTM is profoundly confused.

This is not my take... I think it was Scott Laughlin on SiriusXM saying "You would have never seen Bob Probert chasing Doug Gilmour around back in the day and slamming him to the ice". And while that's true, I'm pretty sure that the entire point is NOT that the victim was Panarin and Wilson broke "THE CODE". And thus,

Greg Wyshynski really showed his ass on this whole thing, too, and I'm pretty sure he knew he was showing his ass when he did so, but went ahead with it for THE ENGAGEMENT. I unfollowed Lambert a month ago (I'd done it before but this time it's permanent) and I'm thinking of banishing Wysh, too. He reports news but most of his articles are behind the ESPN+ paywall and he's not worth a subscription.
