I don't defend Cooke's history. I will say that one season of seemingly different play is enough to take notice. It may not be enough to say definitively that he has changed. That much is true. However, it is not merely him "not trying to kill anyone". In my opinion it is obvious that he has taken strides to attempt to clean up all aspects of his game while still playing physical.
Whether Cookes act was intentional or not, it was his doing, not Karlsson's.
