I wouldn't be surprised if Cooke is scratched for the next game they play Ottawa to avoid it turning into a circus or the refs find a reason to give him a game misconduct. The other thing is that Ottawa has had these kind of incidents happen to them before & have rarely responded, the Carkner/Boyle incident aside. BTW I wonder how Carkner feels after sticking up for his teammates then not being re-signed by the organization.

Personally, to all thatsay we should tank, we never should regardless of the possibilities. No athlete ever plays to lose. We should never quit, never give up & in fact, should play to win even more. This is an opportunity for the players in the lineup to prove themselves in positions they might not otherwise have. It wouldn't be the first time a heavily favouried team loses to a team decimated with injuries.

So as fans let's not talk about quitting, let's continue to talk about winning, about doing what it takes to shut their offence down & get some dirty goals. Let's encourage our players to work harder & stand up for each other & go for the win. We still have the best goalie in the NHL right now so let's encourage the players to help him keep his record intact. Never give up, never quit & never ever tank, **** the draft we've done fine from wherever we draft.
