They thought that fans like me were ridiculous in our assessment of Wilson as an anti-fighting and skill-focused coach who dulled the edge of a team that did have some guys that played really physical when left to their own devices(Simon and Witt especially).

I loved Brian Burke's comments about Wilson after he fired him recently. They pretty much confirmed what I've been saying about Wilson for the last decade.
What did he say?
