    My guess - he will grieve, be able to play during the appeal process (tonight), then the suspension is upheld.

    Hoping so. If the players are serious about getting this stuff out of the game the union should take a pass on supporting an appeal here. They can't have it both ways.

    I think he got 20 games for stupidity. No reason to make a hit like that in the last pre-season game, he has nothing to prove, and it was vs. a meaningless St. Louis Blues team where their is no rivalry.
    Nope. It's $1.26M of his AAV, not his base salary. Signing bonus isn't magically protected.

    No player has ever been allowed to do this, to my knowledge, so I seriously doubt this is permitted. My bet is they just shave a handful of games off the end. Two, four max. So 16-18 games total.

    Why just 20 games? If you look at the video that accompanies the decision, it shows the previous three high hits that resulted in suspensions for Wilson in just the past year, and it mentions that no player has ever gotten four suspensions in such a short period. He keeps on doing the same thing irrespective of suspensions. Why not 41 games? It's not like he hasn't been warned and warned and warned and warned that he can't play this way.

    And by the way, can anyone tell me why the NHLPA always sides with its goon members rather than its members who are injured by them?

    This is fine. Good for the Ranger kids and Zib. Next one will be 41 games, Sod.

    They can play during the appeal, I thought?

    I saw him skate out for the ceremonies so figured he was playing. They announced players not playing earlier on the bench.

    Good point. There was a 40% chance that Zib's next concussion would come at the hands (elbow) of Wilson and 60% chance it would come from someone else in the league.

    I guess not, he didn't play last night... I thought they could though. I was wrong.

    I thought they're not allowed to be in the arena during a suspension

    You would hope the players would be happy with this ruling
