Well it’s not the outcome most people wanted but it’s the one most expected.

The NHL department of player safety announced tuesday morning that Tom Wilson will not be suspended for his actions against the Rangers monday night but rather fined, $5,000.

About 8 minutes into the second period of last nights game Tom Wilson pulled Buchnevich to the ice and then promptly punched him in the back of the head, shortly after he grabbed Panarin by the hair and slammed him to the ice, luckily for Wilson Panarin landed on his shoulder rather than his head.

Tom Wilson has a history of aggressive out of control behavior and the League has a history of doing everything they can to avoid dealing out proper punishment and this is just the latest example.

You can tell by the reaction around the league from fans of all teams that people are not happy about it. How do you feel? Let us know in the comments.
