Goons don't intimidate anyone other than the team's opposing goon. The goon will generally not hurt Tavares because quite frankly he is not a good enough player to catch another player vulnerable on the ice (Ironically, evidence to the contrary includes Gillies on Tangredi which is a one off thing imo). Certainly the goon will not prevent guys like Cooke from doing what they're doing, because Cooke doesn't have to answer to the goon and never will.


The goon is simply an antiquated part of the game. GMs and coaches were institutionalized to believe in their importance. When quite frankly its not there. They are just too stubborn to admit it.
