Other NHL Games 2018-19 Edition.

The Caps are putting lumps on the seemingly hapless B's. 5-0 halfway through the second. Of course, Ovy scored from the left dot on PP.

As I said previously, I hope that the appeal ends with a 25 game suspension as opposed to the original 20.

I just lost a ton of respect for the NHLPA. I guess Sundqvist threw himself into Wilson's elbow. No way in h*** that POS should ever see NHL ice unless he's a spectator. I agree Jim and I might even go so far as to say his suspension should be for as long as Sundqvist is out. That's 6 mos from what I've read. I think they're being optimistic. I hope I'm wrong.

It's a union. Nearly automatic that they would appeal.

Next CBA should add if you appeal and lose it adds games to the suspension.

I'm still wondering why a union is only intent on protecting the perpetrator. Last I checked, every recipient of Wilson's dirty hits (and man, have there been many) has been in the union, as well. How does that make sense to any one?

It's union logic.

If you think about what unions are support do for its members/workers... then why is their a need for groups like OSHA, and why do unions and OSHA conflict so often. Union logic.

Tack on an additional five games every time a suspended player uses the phrase "honest player" in their statement...Call it the Tom Wilson rule.
