Dan’s Daily: All Hell Breaks Loose, Capitals Done with Kuznetsov

Published

on

Pittsburgh Penguins, Tom Wilson, Washington Capitals

The Washington Capitals are the epicenter of the hockey world this week. From the severe outcry for the NHL and NHL’s Department of Player Safety to the reports that Washington has tired of first-line center Evgeny Kuznetsov’s selfish act. The New York Rangers certainly fired a shot across the NHL’s bow on Tuesday afternoon, and the Pittsburgh Penguins earned a physical rebound win in Philadelphia.

Kudos to the New York Rangers. They didn’t softly say what we were all thinking. They boldly put out a statement that called out the league and Department of Player Safety head Georg Parros.

Pittsburgh Hockey Now: The New York Rangers called for Parros’ job after Tom Wilson received only a fine for his assaults on Pavel Buchnevich and Artemi Panarin.

Parros is from Washington, PA, if it matters to anyone.

PHN+: The Penguins full report card and analysis–They did beat the Philadelphia Flyers in a physical, a bit dirty, slobber knocker, 7-3. 

RMNB: There are multiple reports (TSN, Sportsnet) that the Washington Capitals are fed up with top-line center Evgeny Kuznetsov. He missed team meetings, and now he’s back on the COVID list for breaking the rules. Reports indicate the Capitals are fed up and willing to trade him this summer. 

A team coming apart on the inside should be beatable in the playoffs, eh?

Here’s the money quote of the night, except for the Rangers torching the NHL.

National Hockey Now:

The East Division is taking shape. The Washington Capitals have the inside track on the division crown, the Boston Bruins are in third are will probably finish there, and the New York Islanders look to be ripe for the picking.

Boston: Watch this– Boston lost to New Jersey in OT, then goalie Jaroslav Halak threw an absolute nutty.

NYI: The Islanders slept through a bad loss to the Buffalo Sabres. 

Philly: Here’s the other side of the Pittsburgh Penguins win — From Philly, IF you have the guts. 

Colorado: Hotshot prospect Connor Timmons was nearly knocked out of hockey while still in juniors. Now, he’s starring with Colorado down the stretch. 

Vegas: Robin Lehner was leaky, and Vegas blew a late lead. Fans not so happy…

San Jose: Last but certainly not least, the San Jose Sharks head coach Bob Boughner told no lies when he discussed the Sharks shortcomings…

Mr. Parros…..IT’S APPALLING THAT THIS MAN (WILSON)CONTINUES TO PLAY IN THE NHL. ARE WE WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO SUFFER A LIFE THREATENING INJURY DUE TO THIS WRECKLESS PLAYER? BRANDON CARLO IS PROOF…ALONG WITH MANY OTHERS. YOU SIR NEED TO WAKE UP…ANY FUTURE BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS! WHAT A JOKE! Department of Player Safety head Georg Parros.- Want to take a turn with this guy?

The NHL gambling with life changing injuries by not taking stuff like this seriously is absurd. Do they not remember Steve Moore? Or did they just learn nothing from that?

Keep that same energy for your golden boy Sidney Crosby for his WWE slam and face shove into the ice the other night against the flyers.

Rangers take a cheap shot at Caps goalie with a hockey stick then get a Hanson brothers beat down.
Quit whining about Wilson sending a message that you don’t hit a defenseless goalie with a hockey stick then expect the NHL to fire their player safety director.
It’s hockey…..not 3 year olds playing maul ball soccer.
I don’t blame any player or team for defending their teammates and especially the goalie who was shoved down into the ice then stick hit by a punk…….

At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
