We talked about this on todays podcast and I love this move. Ryan Reaves is one of the more likable guys in the league depending on what team you root for. In a league where players often aren’t see as their normal selves, Reaves is as pure and genuine as they come. This cameo could’ve went unresponded to but even after a little research, Reavo decided to give the dog a bone. If you remember correctly, Reaves and Wilson have a little bit of history.
I love the fact that he didn’t go full hardo either. Reaves could’ve said Tom Wilson is the worst hockey player in the planet but he didn’t. He respects what players bring to the game and although there is some hatred there, no one can deny that Tom Wilson is a helluva hockey player. He does however make sure its known that he doesn’t think he’s that great of a fighter which I’m sure will be talked about the next time the Caps play the Knights, whenever that may be.
