Though the team may not be seeking a certain outcome, they still are presenting evidence on behalf of the "victim" (in a sense).
Exactly. Doesn't mean I am right or you are right. We just disagree with what we think is suspendable.
Exactly. You are ok with that, I am not.
It really doesn't matter how I believe the NHL
handle these cases, but I fully accept the way they do it.
Wilson will get five games or less because Schenn didn't break his neck (or suffer a severe injury, since he has claimed that he does not have a conussion); that's the way it is and will be for the foreseeable future. If I'm making an argument on how many games a player should get for a dirty play, it's because I'm taking how the NHL will look at the incident into question. Arguing otherwise is futile.
I deride your truth handling abilities
