My thought is that if the NHL lifted the 3rd man in game misconduct then guys who take these cheap shots would be dealt with like they were in the past.

Beat them to a pulp, seriously.

Cheap shot a-holes like Cooke would definitely stop.

Maybe there is some trigger for multiple 3rd man in penalties in a single game, but waiting for the league to take some retribution on a cheap hit just doesn't work IMO.

The players can govern themselves but we have to get past the PC of it all.
