Keep in mind that Sweden was considered Canada's biggest hurdle going into the WJC. Cormier was just sending a message along the lines of "If you try and beat us, we'll beat the **** out of you." Nothing wrong with intimidation. That's Claude Lemieux-esque to me, and that's the kind of player the Thrashers need.
sorry, i disagree...that was a garbage play, there are other ways to intimidate that dont cross the line.
