My immediate gut reaction was he did it on purpose.

Maybe cuz it's Cooke.

Maybe cuz I had just got home from day surgery at ARH and was very stoned indeed.

Maybe cuz I have Karlsson in the Corner hockey pool and need someone to blame for this. :P

I know most of the experts are concluding it was accidental.

Along with most of the posters at HF.

But I'm gonna hafta go with my gut on this one.

There's something about the way he skated away without even glancing back as Karlsson screamed in agony.

Nope I'm going to remain in the minority on this one.

I'm think he was kicking/stomping at Karlsson's ankle on purpose.

Not saying he was trying to slice his tendon!

I dunno, at the very least the league should have some kind of suspension for careless use of a skate blade no?

(yeah I know they don't, but they SHOULD)

Poor Karlsson, hard not to think about all that Bieksa went through coming back from that...


I feel sorry for the kid. Honestly, I cannot tell whether Cooke had the intention or not.

Personally, I found that Fiddler might have the intention to step on Bieksa back in 2007. However, since Bieksa was not a Norris Trophy winner and Fiddler did not have Cooke's reputation, the media (except the local ones) did not pay much attention. Seriously, would the media care as much if it was a fourth line grinder that was injured?

I doubt that Cooke intentionally cut or stepped on the back of Karlsson's leg.

However, keep you damn skates on the ice. I know they collided and Cooke was knocked a bit askew but you can't be going into the boards with another player with a skate off the ice like that.

It likely happens fairly often and it's always just a matter of time before accidents happen.

So McMurphy I see you finally pushed nurse Ratched too far and got that frontal lobotomy!

At least they were nice enough to dope you up.

If... it... happens fairly often, then why doesn't this kind of injury happen fairly often?

("fairly often" being a relative term)

Truth is there is only one person who knows for certain if there was malicious intent involved.

And he skated away without so much as a glance back as his victim SCREAMED IN AGONY. Image

Personally, I'd like to see Cooke hooked up to a polygraph machine.

But until such time, I choose to believe the other player involved in the play. :hmmm:

As an aside, how would you feel about the NHL adding a Negligence Clause to it's list of suspension-worthy plays?

Well I'm still kicking, but someone is smothering me with a pillow even as we speak....

All I meant is that collisions where guys skates come off the ice happen fairly often.

And instead of cutting a guys Achilles more often than not the skate hits something else like the other guys skate, the back of the shin pads or it doesn't quite cut through the sock. The skate blade cutting the Achilles really has to get into a fairly tight space to do the damage.

Besides it doesn't matter, it was Karlsson's fault for not wearing Kevlar socks!

:mrgreen:

I hope you've taken your skates off.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Do we have the pieces to pull off a trade for Ryan O'Reilly? I like this player.

I wouldn't mind something along these lines. Like I said, players do need to be responsible for themselves and their equipment.

However, why do I get the feeling that as soon as some rule like this is instituted somehow the Canucks will get burned!

:crazy:

Couldn't agree more. Shit happens but Cooke is a fucking douche. Hated this player in Vancouver.

Sorry guys, it's too hard for me to believe it was an accident with the EVIL Matt Cooke involved.

It's very possible for an EVIL person to purposely bring that blade down on the back of Karlsson's leg.

His knee was up Karlsson's crack just beforehand = he knew exactly where Karlsson's legs were.

Twas my gut reaction watching the play live, and replays only convince me further.

Did I mention he skated away without so much as a glance back as Karlsson screamed in agony??

EVIL

Anyhoo, tis a matter of opinion, stated mine, moving on....
