I just checked, the Galápagos Penguin and the African Penguin are endangered species. So as far as I’m concerned, Wilson’s lucky he’s not going to jail.
There was the hit from Sunday, then the one from Tuesday and I gotta be honest, I don’t see a difference between the two.
I WANT HITS. I want fights. I want GOONS. I want teams hating one another. But there’s no two ways about it, these are cheap shots.
Wilson had them both lined up, good for him. I don’t care if he drills a guy that’s not looking and breaks his ribs. Pay attention.
But this guy is making an effort to aim for heads. I don’t want to see hockey become soft, but you can’t just ignore everything like the NFL.
Careless hits like these create unnecessary problems that create additional stupid rules and restrictions that ruin hockey.
So if you’re pissed at anyone, be pissed at Wilson for not hitting Zach Aston-Reese and Brian Dumoulin a few inches lower. If Wilson had, I’m willing to bet he still destroys them both.
