Very good question about the kevlar socks. Maybe they are not that comfortable? Or more likely that players are just reluctant to change and are willing to take the risk.

I think the former is just an excuse for the latter.

They don't look that bulky, however I've never actually tried a pair on.

No chance Cooke made that play deliberately. I like Murray, but I haven't heard his comments. If he thinks Cooke did this intentionally he is talking out of his ass. I understand the frustration, but leaders shouldn't be making knee-jerk reaction type statements. The chance that Cooke did this deliberately is zero.

He didn't intentionally lift his foot. This play is relatively routine. Ward said it best, he was jockeying for position to pin him and his leg climbed up Karlsson, unfortunate yes, but Cooke did nothing wrong here. It was a freak incident that happens from time to time.

I know people are bringing up examples of players who returned from this type of injury to their top form, but I'm sure there are just as many examples of players who didn't reach the same level ever again. Way too early to predict anything like that.

I'm in the boat of intentional. Cooke gets the guilty until proven innocent card from me.

I share your opinion on Matt Cooke, as he is the dirtiest player in the NHL today and probably top 5 of all time. That guy is pure evil... You can see it in his eyes.

Until proven innocent, he is guilty and should be put in jail for that horrible move on Karlsson... Feel bad for the Sens and Karlsson.

This statement is one big contradiction. How can someone accidentally use their skate as a weapon? If he didn't mean to do it, then there was no attempt to use it as a weapon, it just is. Matt Cooke is a dirt bag, this play isn't one of the reasons why.

You're right. Cooke is completely guilty. I heard Montreal area people called 9-1-1 and there was a search last night and they uncovered a bunch of Erik Karlsson dolls. It seems he's been practicing to slice Karlsson's acihillies' tendon for quite some time now. He's practiced so much he was able to maneuver his skate, on an downward angle to get behind the back of his skate protection and down enough to slice the tendon and not even looking at what he's doing.

We have a really skilled guy, over here. He should be a surgeon with that type of precision, not a hockey player.

Maybe we can finally have an Ottawa-Montreal game where the CBC commentators aren't slobbering over Karlsson's godliness. Of course not they will be talking about how terrible it is to not have the greatest player ever not playing the game. I think this may have been premeditated by the rest of the league who could no longer stand by while Karlsson was the only player worth talking about. Players picked Cooke to make the cut as no one else could make it look like an accident.

I'm also incredibly happy for Colombus. Maybe they'll start to have some good hockey.

They have a good future in my opinion. I would've like Kekalainen on our staff.

If you watched the replay you would know taht it would take the body control of an elite gymnast to pull that off even with our a skate on your left foot.

Technical question. Can you take illegal substance when you're on IR?

Let's say Karlsson take x illegal product to help with the healing. Is that even illegal because he won't play until september anyway?

Technically no but the NHL is notoriously lax with its doping standards. If I was Karlsson I'd definitely look into getting HGH for the healing process.

So it seems Karlsson's achilles was cut 70% and not severed, which is good news as far as recovery goes. A severed tendon takes a long time to recover from and there is loss of mobility. Karlsson could come back fully healed for the beginning of next season.

Caps 4-2 vs TB... RDS will still probably praise the work of Boucher and his french staff.. All their superstars have gone quiet since they stop getting 7-8 PP per game!!!!!!!
