The fight was meh. I'd rather see Cooke rocked..not concussion like but "man, that hurt like hell" barely getting up to get back to the bench hit. :sly:


I'd rather see Cooke banned from the game but no one ever said the world was supposed to be fair.

I never thought I'd type these words, but props to Cooke. I loathe the guy and he does a lot of dumb s*** - but in this particular instance he did the right thing. Find the other team's toughguy early and fight him straight up, get it out of the way. Had Cooke gone after May instead of fighting non-fighter Cooke, Bert might not have broke his neck.
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

I'm glad that Cooke obliged Thornton, but I wonder why he didn't ditch the lid when Thornton asked. It's good to see players policing themselves this way, as I believe this is a situation where fighting could have prevented an injury (from a dirty hit).

Because he wanted to hide behind his visor like the little ***** that he is.

Nice job by Thornton to continue throwing punches.

Wasn't Cooke wearing a visor for that fight?

I didn't notice. If he was, he should have ditched it. Nonetheless, going after Thornton early was the right thing to do. Failing to fight a toughguy or turtling would have put his teamates at risk.

Geez, the unwritten rules of hockey.

Another example: 50 years ago if you wore a helmet you were ***, but it's okay nowadays. Nowadays if you wear a neck protector you're ***.

because the outcome is so frustratingly out of their control."
