It's not a coincidence he ended Savards career and now targeted Karlsson. He goes after star players.

I don't think it was intentional, no.

No, but he was careless and stupid. Where's that option?

A wild guess is that fans of teams that has been hurt by Mad Cooke of the past will respond one way along with grieving Ottawa fans whereas most will look at vid and the many similar plays happening allover the league nightly and decide that it was a freak accident.

Very sad for Karlsson and Ottawa, but this bears no comparison to the legitimate grievances Boston fans can have about Savard for instance. Nor has Cooke been comparable to Mad Cooke since his last suspension where Shero told him to end his recklessness or he'd be off the team.

Nope. Reckless, maybe. But not intent to cut him, for sure.

Reckless sure. Intent -- probably not.

But still... why is it ALWAYS Cooke?? I mean, seriously.

I would like this option too. Just a horrible attempt at pinning.

Intent to cut him? No. Intent to injure? Yes. Cooke doesn't care at all if he kills someone. He's cold and heartless.

You really topped yourself here, how do you even get intent to injure there or is every Cooke body check an attempt to injure as well?

I'm not a Cooke fan in the least but comments like this....

How was he intending to injure him if not by cutting him? Not really following your train of thought here.

No but I'm really ****ing pissed at how reckless he was on that play. You need to have WAY more control than what Cooke had on that play.

I understand sometimes freak injuries are freak injuries but this wasn't a freak injury - it was Cooke going after Karlsson in a reckless fashion and the end result was serious injury.

A freak accident with a skate would be like what happened to Zednik or a pileup of bodies (I forget but I think a Montreal player had something happen to them in a pileup and he had a tendon severed or cut badly?) and not a simple 1 on 1 'pin' on the boards.

I saw the play and it's tough to say he did, but it sure looks odd.

Matt Cooke has evolved to the point where he knows how to injury someone by making it look unintentional/harmless. He's that good at it.

running around with knife blades on your feet requires you to always be in control of them.
Cooke was not. intentional maybe not, but reckless yes.
Deserving of punishment yes, for recklessly endangering the career of another player.
The sad part is that this is now a pattern in his career.

What I want to know is this. Did the Ottawa Senators target Matt Cooke earlier in the game to gain an advantage as commented by TSN announcers in Canada when Sergei Gonchar shot a puck at Matt Cooke's head?? If true?? Explains plenty.

He had a bad stick... took 2 slappers one hit Cooke and another went straight up to the mesh behind the net. After the second wild shot he replaced his stick.

Although, perhaps Cooke thought the first shot came from Karlsson since it was from the right point?

How was this hit reckless? It was a simple hit and pin play. It wasnt even a hit? it was a PIN.

Karlsson knocked him off balance while Cooke was playing him softly into the boards, and unfortunately Cooke's foot landed on Karlssons foot in a FREAK accident while Cooke was looking away from the play.

And btw, I absolutely loath Matt Cooke and wanted him taken out after the Savard hit, but Cooke did nothing wrong on this play.
