If you are convinced it was intentional you need to tie someone up into the boards and see how much control and balance you have. Despite belief to the contrary, hockey players are not in 100% control of everything around them at all times (think an errant high-stick).
Melnyk embarrassed his franchise. This whole conspiracy junk is worse than the Steckel-Crosby issue.
Take a breath people, **** happens. It happened to the Pens w/ Staal and Subban.
My mind is boggled that you don't think Cooke was trying to do something dirty there.
