If you have an Athletic subscription, highly recommend giving a read to Aaron Portzline's article on former Penguin Lyle Odelein. Looks like Odelein married a Pittsburgh girl, maintains a home in Pittsburgh, and.....went through a horrifying experience where he nearly died and had an unprecedented triple organ transplant in one surgery:

Wow. Great read. It's very scary that it was either a cactus or a routine cleaning of his teeths. Thoughts and prayers to him and his family. Pretty amazing story.

Well, maybe the NHL has changed. Shocked! :shock:



Its easy to try and justify this suspension, its just a little to late in my book. This suspension doesn't help his last 3 victims. The suspensions need to be more severe even for first time offenders so we don't see them. The carelessness of Wilson to just go out there and lay people out at will has to stop.

There are some cases where a head shot is completely unavoidable and I don’t condone penalties or suspensions for honest mistakes. I think with HD slow motion multiple angle video and context of the situation you can determine that.

But when a player who hits someone else in the head with no other outside circumstance besides either their sloppy play or actually intentional you have to start with 5 games minimum. Next time it’s 10, then 20, then 40 then a full season. At some point that player will either learn or be out of pro hockey in North America.

They seem to be following the Raffi Torres, a few suspension than a 21 game one for him. I am hoping the next time Wilson does this (and he will do it again) that he gets the 41 games that Torres got. After that, he was out of the league.
