You are free to contact Melnyk yourself. We're not going to defend what Melnyk said, but we admire him as he's been a tremendous owner for us.

All we care about here is the health of our generational dman, we don't care about Cooke.
Fair enough. I can accept this.

Karlsson spoke to the media today and stood behind Melnyk.

He refuses to think Cooke intentionally cut him, but he does think Cooke was recklessly trying to knock him down/out.

I did watch that interview and how gracious and careful Karlsson was.

I am truly puzzled at how so many have rushed to give Cooke some plausible deniability on this hit. The position of his hands and skate are so unnatural that it cannot be explained other than an attempt to mask a dangerous play.

I am furious and I am not even a Sens fan. The fact that this player can play in this league just enforces some of the complaints that the NHL is amateurish and inconsistent in it's enforcement of rules. Karlsson should be playing not this menace.

Which is exactly what happened.

Funny how Hall can get 2 games for a reckless play with no intent to injure....but Cooke gets nothing...

It's painfully obvious how the league bends over backwards to protect certain teams, while others are hung out to dry.

People love a great story, and the media have been playing up Cooke to be a Lady Byng candidate for the past season. Even Shanahan and the NHL have been looking the other way with his dirty play to keep the story going.

Fact is, players and teams are way more media savvy nowadays. They know how to play the crowd and steer the lemmings off whichever cliff they choose.

I'm not a Sens fan either,...but I'm just as frustrated and boggled as you,..about the behaviour of the "so-called" hockey media and hockey world regarding their obnoxious behaviour over this reckless cheap shot. The video makes the perpetraitor look as guilty as sin. At best,...it's an extremetly questionably pin. For all the "hockey experts?" and "hockey media"...to give Cooke the benefit of the doubt on this,...is bordering on insanity. I wonder what all these "all knowing hockey genius' will say,....when down the road,...the real truth finally comes out. The only way Cooke will be out of the league,...is if someone takes him out.

The Toronto media are slimy pathetic small people.

Landsberg, Simmons, Nailor, Hayes...No wonder Toronto fans are like they are, listening to these losers.
