JOHN SCOTT SAYS IT'S OPEN SEASON ON STAR PLAYERS IN THE NHL AFTER WILSON RULING

MAY 4, 2021  (17H42)      TIM TUCKER
Gutless and terrible hockey. That's how former NHL enforcer John Scott is reacting to Tom Wilson of the Washington Capitals punching Pavel Buchnevich in the back of the head while he was lying on the ice Monday night, as well as Wilson's rag-dolling of New York Rangers star Artemi Panarin.

"You know how much I used to respect Tom Wilson," said Scott. "He plays the game the way I like it to be played. He's physical, he hits, he plays on the edge. That's what I love about him."

Scott continued by saying he believes Wilson crossed a line with his latest antics, but what's more surprising is the NHL's reaction to it.

"He gets fined $5000?" said Scott. "What on earth is happening with the NHL right now. George Parros not only dropped the ball, he dropped everything. He dropped his drawers, dropped everything. It was a joke of a fine."

"I have no words for it. It's insane to me that he gets a $5000 fine," said Scott.

Scott said as far as he's concerns, this means "It's fair game, baby in any scrum."

"If you go into a scrum anywhere on the ice and you see a star player, I'm throwing sucker-punches, I'm grabbing this guy, I'm twisting ankles," Scott said. "I'm doing everything I can, because the worst thing that's going to happen to me is a $5000 fine. Because I can't see anyone doing more than what Tom Wilson did to Panarin."

Scott ended by saying shame on the NHL for not taking the proper action and shame on Wilson because he ought to know better.
