By that logic, Steve Tuttle should have gone to jail for attempted murder.

 

The two circumstances are not even remotely similar but nice try Mr. "logic".  If what Cooke did is sooooo commonplace then where are all the sliced legs?  Maybe it's because the vast majority of instances where a player is pinned from behind didn't involve a douchebag like Matt Cooke and therefore didn't result in an "accidental" leg slicing.  But I'm sure Karlsson was just "unlucky" in this case, I mean that's what all the talking heads on tv are saying right?  And of course we believe everything that's on tv right?  Everyone is CERTAIN of Matt Cooke's "intent" right?

 

I hope someone seriously hurts Matt Cooke. (by "accident" of course ;) )

Yep, lots of examples of why this guy certainly deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Why is this guy in the NHL. Lemieux cried and wimpered his whole career over a the b.s. scrubs mucking up the game. Now he gainfully employs the biggest piece of dung the NHL has seen since Marchment. Puts me like Lemieux less.

Are these the same talking heads who said that Colin Campbell was a man of impeccable integrity when those emails surfaced with clear evidence of his corruption?

Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Apparently this is all Karlsson's fault now for not wearing the right kind of socks.  What a load of crap!

Well he wouldn't have been injured if he was.

 

Not saying it's his fault, but facts are the facts. I guess you just want to suspend everyone for anything now, let's take hitting out of the game while we are at it, sometimes people get hurt!

If stomping someone from behind with a skate blade is considered hitting now then yes, suspend away!

Im pretty sure Cooke attempted to stomp Karlsson. Look at the replay, who does that when trying to pin a player? Its laughable that people think Cooke wasnt trying something fishy here

I feel so bad for Eriksson and the rest of the team :( I feel bad for all the ottawa fans. EK is one of the best players is the game. He bring people to the game. Without him, what will happen? :(

 

Meh, he's making 6 million per. I wouldn't want to have a 70% torn Achilles, but sitting at home collecting your 6 digit cheques with your red Ferrari in the garage; I don't feel bad for any player. Not after the last lockout. 

 

As for the play itself, Cooke obviously didn't do it on purpose. These types of injuries happen so Sens fans should suck it up

Who does that when trying to pin a player?  The majority of players....this is the current technique being taught (i.e. lifting your leg up in between your opponents legs).  Complete fluke that his skate came down made contact with an unprotected spot on Karlsson's leg.

 

I think it would take a complete pyscho to do that on purpose.  Maybe Cooke is a pyscho and he did do it on purpose, I don't know, but I think that would be a gigantic leap to make and I think pretty much everyone close to the NHL (except the OTT org.) agrees that this was a normal, multiple times a day play that ended badly.

So lifting your leg SKATE FIRST is currently being taught?  I don't think so.  Surely an NHL caliber player of numerous years in the league knows how to properly perform pinning another player against the boards without stomping his foot skate-first into the opponent's leg.  It's not like Cooke had another player checking him to knock him off balance or anything, he had all day to initiate and properly pin Ottawa's best d-man against the boards without the skate blade making contact.  Unfortunately he did not and it wasn't some damned accident.

 

Using consensus among NHL and tv "experts" is laughable.  They will simply fall in line with the league's decision because we all know who affords their paychecks.  This isn't the first time, and it certainly won't be the last that they royally screwed up.  The Sens owner and GM are absolutely right.  Cooke is a piece of s*** and shouldn't be in the league.  He's had enough f***in' chances.

Nick Lidstrom made that much last season. Would you have felt bad if it was him?

Defending Matt Cooke is so ridiculous. Once every 5 year accidents seem to happen with Matt Cooke twice a year. How much is enough.

If you think Karlsson is just sitting at home collecting his cheques you are wrong, the guy will have to do an intense rehab, skate a few weeks on basically one leg, same goes for the gym and take cabs whereever he wants to go. So yes, he is getting a lot of money but this doesn't mean, this injury will be an easy one to overcome...so sitting at home and doing nothing might be far from the truth.

Yeah, what kind of a physco stomps on another player?  Chris Simon, Chris Pronger.......Matt Cooke.  Spot the common denominator.

Bobby Ryan too. 

 

The difference is those were clear stomps.  If you watch the Cooke play at full speed instead of slow motion, I'd hardly call it a stomp.  His skate comes down right as they run into the boards. 

 

Cooke is a POS but if he were this good at disguising his dirty plays, he wouldn't have the reputation he does.  You guys are giving him way too much credit for how clever he is.

Pinning someone against the boards involves leading with the thigh, not the skate blade, but I'm sure all the "players" on the board know this already.  Cooke is laughing at all of you.

I can't even look at this, it makes me cringe just thinking about it.  Hopefully he recovers quickly.
