I salivate waiting for the day Matt Cooke suffers an unbelievably agoinizing injury or disease for what he did to Marc Savard. And when Cooke is gone and in the ground, the millions who detest him will make a pilgrimage to mictate on his grave.
The injury of Erik Karlsson was not Matt's fault at all. Every good defensive player uses their knee to contain players. But, I think the NHL should think about making this is penalty to prevent further accidents like this.
Reply-to:THUS GUY IS A REPEAT OFFENDER......AND DESERVES THE SUSPENTION. PERIOD. AND SECONDLY IF YOU RE-WATCH THE VIDEO HE EXTENDS AND LIFTS UP HIS SHOULDER JUST BEFORE COMING INTO CONTACT WITH A RANGERS PLAYER. MEANING IT IS ON PURPOSE!
You don't know whether it was on purpose or not, unless you are him, in which case you're pretty pathetic. There are plenty of people--majority of the guys playing hockey actually--who frequently finish checks without bringing up their elbows. While you're right (not all hits go as planned and some do go bad), Cooke has had videos after videos of him elbowing people's heads, boarding, and going for knee-on-knees. Don't tell me all of those are just "hard hits."
And just because the guy's fine doesn't mean that Cooke shouldn't get penalized for a dangerous act. If you punch someone in the face, even if the guy's ok, you're probably still doing something bad. Just maybe.
Reply-to:Listen Matt doesnt give those hits on purpose. He follows through with all of his checks. Yes some of them are a little sketchy but he doesnt do it on purpose. That is how he plays. He plays a hard game and he is the one on the team to dish out those major hits. Not all hits go as planned and some of them are bad. The guy he hit where he got the suspension was ridiculous. The guy was fine he got up and played the rest of the game. People just hate Matt bc of the hit on Marc Savard. Get over it! It is done and over with.
