Yup, it happened again. It’s September 30, the season hasn’t started and Tom Wilson is out here in midseason form.
Jeeeesh. Listen guys, I’m all for big hits. That’s part of what makes hockey fun. I’ll never forget Brian Campbells hit on RJ Umberger or Paul Kariya telling Scott Stevens to suck his ass after getting knocked out. These were all great memories of a game that just isn’t the same anymore. Its 2018 and the NHL has said time and time again that they’re trying to eliminate headshots and time and time again Tom Wilson goes out there and destroys somebodies medulla oblongata. How many times does Tom Wilson have to do something borderline before the NHL puts him out to pasture? I mean, I’d say at this point he’s been warned enough times, no? What will probably happen? He’ll get a game, twitter will be in outrage and Tom Wilson will be sitting and waiting for the next poor schmuk to come across the middle with his head down, wait 3 seconds, and put him into concussion protocol. Classic Tom Wilson.
