It's over. It's done. The NHL already decided what has happened acted accordingly.

I want to be shocked. I Want to think this was a joke. Yet I am not really shocked, and this is not a joke.

What does this prove? What kind of precedence is he trying to bring to light? This seems like a really bizarre case of a bad tv show plot, rather then a professional sports teams entertainment business actions.

This is a guy who goes on and say the team is on a budget, and is out there spending an obscene amount of money on this "study" of his. Seems kind of contradictory.

The most baffling part about all this, is how confident Melnyk is here. This is a man who as "crazy" as he is, has made a fortune for a reason. He's got something up his sleeve.

The question now becomes, what this something is....cue the end episode 1 of the #csisens

I love Melnyk.

How many of you can say they know your team's owner, lol.

This guy makes cheering for Ottawa that much more appealing.

Euge is like the super passionate fan who is an intense homer. Plus he likes to have a few drinks and call his favourite radio station. This is not the craziest thing he's said before.

Haha, he does sound obsessed with Cooke. I wonder when the Heatley lawsuit will be settled? Then there were the cryptic comments during the lockout showing impatience and opposition the the lockout. He's like Mark Cuban with Caribbean rum, and no rinkside seats.

I'm picturing it right now, Bettman with Fehr and Shanahan while Melnyk comes in with 30 forensic doctors in their suits, lmao. This is too funny.

Cooke took out Karlsson behind the grassy knoll in Dallas. Just after he faked the moon landing.

I know he lost his star player to a guy with a dirty history. But it was a freak play that resulted into injury. Not intentional.

He's wasting his time/money. He should just give up and shut his mouth at this point.

You guys may "goofing" on him, but ask yourself this: Is he crazy, angry, and obsessed enough to have someone go after Crosby in retaliation for what he believes was an intentional and malicious stomp?

Yeah no. This method at best proves that this kind of play happens very often or not very often. Nothing more and nothing less.

Good on Melnyk. I'm not convinced Cooke did it intentionally, but why people think that it's impossible to develop a scientifically supportable argument that the amount of force exerted by Cooke was stronger, or at a differnet angle, than someone simply falling would have likely exerted is beyond me.

Oh and he's a billionaire. Pretty sure he can afford the best analysis.

But yeah, let's instead talk about how "embarrassing" it is for an NHL owner to stand up and do all he can to look into whether or not the best player the franchise has ever seen was intentionally injured.

Yeah. Total embarrassment. Wish we had an owner who didn't give a **** about our team at all and just sat back and collected a paycheck.

You can analysis it to death, you can't prove intent. That's why all the LOL's.

Love melnyk, guy cares about this team and players. Unlike the leafs owners. (just an example)


at the comments "omg this is like so embarrassing, what an idiot blah blah blah blah". I would say some of the reactions in here are idiotic and pathetic.

As a Sens fan, I don't find it embarrassing at all.

Simply put, he's the Mark Cuban of the NHL and I absolutely love him for that. We acknowledge that he's a bit crazy, but that's one of the reasons we love him.

Calm down .

You don't don't think that hiring a team of forensic investigators to look into an incident that happened a month and a half ago is bizarre?

Play looked intentional to me... definitely not an Ottawa fan either.

No one goes in to the boards with their skate like that.

It is impossible to say whether Cooke did it or not on purpose. Only he knows for sure.

One thing I know for sure, just like any "study/investigation" completed in any other facet of life (ex: government, pharmaceutical), the result of the study will support the opinion of the guy who funded it.
