Amen to that.
That makes no sense. How is it a league for elite players? It's mostly a league of hard working players.

We employ Chris Neil. While he has been a much cleaner player than Cooke, it doesn't change the fact that they are very similar players.

Heck, Matt Cooke had 38 points last year and played on the #1 PK unit. He's definitely not a goon.

EDIT: When I think of a "goon", it's those players that are solely on the team for fighting and play 4 mins a game. Cooke's on the second line right now.
