You can’t be happy if you’re a New York Rangers fan, coach, or player right now.
The NHL’s Department of Players Safety and elected to not suspend Tom Wilson for his actions towards Pavel Buchnevich and Artemi Panarin and it’s safe to say the decision left a sour taste in a lot of people’s mouths, particularly Rangers forward Ryan Strome. The forward was asked about the ordeal (which eventually left Panarin with a season-ending injury) and had some not-so flattering words for George Parros and his team.
There’s a good chance you might agree with him, too.
Yup, tell us how you really feel Ryan! And while we’re at it, why don’t you as well, John Scott. The former NHL All-Star had his share of suspensions and is having a tough time fathoming the DOPS’ choice to only slap him with a $5,000 fine.
So where do you sit on the decision? Should Wilson have been suspended, or was the $5K fine appropriate?
