RG posted a bit of this earlier, but puck daddy I believe updated the whole thing

Dano on Cooke;

Quote:
"I played against Matt Cooke, and [Devils announcer] Doc Emrick has let it be known that we used to have epic battles. Even when I was older, he used to get under my skin so bad that I wanted to two-hand him over the head. And I probably should have, and taken the suspension back then. (Laughs)

"However, he is a valuable player. He does his job. He is an agitator. But right now, enough is enough. The guy can skate, hit ... he just doesn't get it, and I don't know if he knows any better.

"I watched that play over and over, hitting Tyutin from behind. Now, some people say that players have to protect themselves, and I don't know why they turn their bodies to the boards. But he was gliding. He had some time to react, to go in gingerly, and he doesn't. He just does not know any better, or he just won't change.

So what's the solution? Here's Daneyko's:

"I'm as crazy as this: The NHL [should declare] open season for one week on Matt Cooke. You won't get suspended. Then we'll see if he'll continue [his behavior] for the rest of the season or his career."

Look, gc, the Devils do have a longshot of making it but AT LEAST we can say they have that shot and if they fail to get it, so be it. But we don't need Bettman/Campbell to help hinder their chances, though...however minute as they are.

Cooke only getting a mere one more game than Volch sums up how inconsistent and incompetent the NHL is.

It's an embarrassment..

We need this to happen over the next 3

The Canes schedule looks tough for their next three:

Philly L, TB L, ATL L.

Thrash have Rags L, Canes W, Phoenix L.

The Leafs have us L, Montreal L and Boston L.

Buffalo: Florida L, NYI L and MTL. L

Florida: Philly L, San Jose L and Buffalo W

Us: Leafs W, Sharks W, Canes W

It's basically needing a miracle with a lot of help. Which never happens, you know 3 game swings are gonna happen, and it's nearly impossible. But that's what we're looking at.

Hey DF, how about needing this to happen over the next 3 :

WIN, WIN, AND WIN.


And let the chips fall where they may.

There's always gotta be a Ranger fan throwing in their two cents. The majority of us do believe it warrants a suspension due to the 0 tolerance policy. However, when you have guys like Cooke and Carter throwing out similar hits and not receiving suspensions, plus Jordan Staal snuffing people in the face, a three game suspension is unfair. It shows inconsistency on the league's part. And if you scroll through to page 4 or 5 of this thread (I don't remember which one) you will find a picture of Volchenkov throwing that "blatant elbow" with his shoulder. It's that typical Scott Stevens-esque follow through that makes it look like a elbow when it's really not.

Volchenkov deserved a one game suspension. Three games is completely unjustifiable.

Agreed. The double standards in this league are as glaring as they are embarrassing.

The system is completely broken. I almost think Campbell picks the number of games out of a hat.
This is my biggest problem with the disciplinary system too. It's clear there is no rhyme or reason why some players get the suspensions they do.
