The show goes on to discuss the incident involving Wilson. Jim breaks down each part of the room. And ask the boys if they were really surprised that Wilson hadn’t been suspended? Most agreed that they were not considering what has happened in hockey and the granting of suspensions over the past 10 years. They also discuss the fallout from the incident and the Rangers’ reaction. And as Jim indicates whether Wilson was suspended or not, he was going to answer the bell now or later.
The boys also continue to talk about the tenacity of the Rangers and how something needs to change. As Jim points out, why is Panarin doing this? As Jay points out, the guy who should have been there, Brendan Lemieux, is now in Los Angeles. Again, they all agree if it wasn’t Tom Wilson this is not discussed. It is then simply considered another scrum after the whistle.
