idk why people are still saying Cooke needs to be punished. Why what rule did he break, even though it was a malicious hit and knowing Cookes history he probably did have intent to injure, you cant punish him.




Then I guess, by this logic, it should be OK for the Bruins to go headhunting for the Penguin's best player when they meet on Thursday night. Suppose Boston's most physical player (goon? thug? clean but hard checking player?) takes out Cyndy Crosby the way Cooke took out Savard. When Bettman regained consciousness, he would demand that the guilty party be banned for life for a "clean" (?) hit on the "face of the NHL". Above all, Political Correctness must be observed!!

Remember how Konstantinov used to play the game? He hit like he meant it and took everything the opponents gave him without a whimper. Personally, I would love to see every player in the league play with the intensity that Vlady brought (and Ovechkin brings) to every game. It would sure be a lot more exciting and entertaining. Remember, it is a contact sport and, like Mickey Redmond says, "It's no place for an nervous person".

You are assuming Sidney is going to have his head down.
He's not that stupid. He's not the greatest hockey talent in the history of the game for nothing...

Normally, your Crosby thing gets annoying, but this is a quality troll right here. Hats of to ya! Well done!

It must be getting harder and harder for you to continue being a CrosTroll given how resoundingly Ovi is destroying Crosby in a season where he'll end up playing at least 11 fewer games. :lol:

Didn't know points were everything.

Crosby's success can only be measured in one thing. Cups. Oh and game winning overtime Gold Medal goals as well.

Soo it's like 2-0 Crosby atm. Granted it's still early.

It's Ovechkin's fault he is missing these games anyways..

So that means Draper is better than Crosby because he has more cups

Rule 21.1 - Match Penalties
A match penalty shall be imposed on any player or goalkeeper who deliberately attempts to injure an opponent in any manner.


Any big body-check could be labeled with the intent to injure if you want to look at it with that broad of interpretation. Anyone of Kronwall's hits could have had the same label according to the "any manner" wording.


Edit: Didn't realize Carman mentioned that already.

Was Draper the captain?

Was Draper one of the main offensive threats on his team?

what difference does it make. According to your own post success is measured in cups. Hence, Draper is more successful/better than Crosby.

In comparison to Ovechkin.

I didn't say that's a wide barometer to measure all players.

Just far and away the two best players.

Sorry, it doesn't seem logic is your strong point if you actually believe Draper is better than Crosby.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ovie was diagnosed with some type of social disorder.

i was using it as a example to point out how pointless championships are in determining how a individual player is superior to another.
