Woah there. Defensive much? Not sure why you are trying to make a senators/pittsburg thread about the leafs, but I guess the leafs will have that effect on you.

Nonsense. There's plenty of ways to prove it

- Writings by Cooke in the days and weeks prior to the incident

- Conversations with associates/hearsay

- Forensics

etc., etc. Melnyk wouldn't be announcing this if his people didn't genuinely believe they had a strong case.

That's why this is funny. This most likely isn't the end. Melnyk will try to go with this.

Though this has bad PR written all over it, so I could see the NHL shutting it down, or Cooke getting a surprisingly long suspension for the next borderline offense he commits.

What Melnyk believes doesn't necessarily have anything to do with reality.

Reading not your thing?

Where did I mention the Sens or try to troll them? I mentioned I don't like Melnyk's desire to be Mark Cuban. I guess that's trolling though in your mind. I guess it's obviously closer the definition of trolling then your shot at the Leafs lack of playoffs which had nothing to do with the thread...

You're coming off as real silly at this point.

I really hope he does this in time to open up a roster spot for Malkin or Letang when either of them get back from injury.

We're going to close this pending it being picked up by a reputable media source or if someone can send me a link to a podcast. We need to verify Eugene Melnyk did indeed say this as the OP described.

Eugene Melnyk just told PrimeTime Sports that MCooke intentionally hurt EKarlsson and he is in the midst of a forensic study to prove it.

You said that the league should take action and I wasn't just referring to you.

I'm sorry, but I actually laughed out loud when I saw the words "forensic study."

Is this CSI?

League should totally take action against owners who publicly accuse players of other teams without any conclusive evidence or proof.

This is a professional league, not some fanboy's fantasy league.

I think people are just jealous that we have an owner that cares so much about the team. He's a huge fan of the Sens and his actions have no bearing on me in this regard...only good can come of it realistically if he does prove something. If not well...it's his prerogative to try.

Not true. He's embarrassing the entire organization, fans, and the city of Ottawa.

I'd be furious if I was a Sens fan.

He could be right. Somebody on HF could win the powerball too.

I think the latter is more likely. If he feels better going this route, then who is to stop him?

You mean threatening to leave the Penguins and take your little ball and go home? I guess complaining about officiating to the league is the more "PC" way of explaining it.
