I wonder if Mario and Cindy will still want to get rid of headshots. Didnt they decide that the team should be fined for repeat offenders ? This POS has no place on the ice.

I just remember him from the Steve Moore incident. Just cheap shots on him all night until Bertuzzi finished him off.

It's okay, the Pens and head hunt, slew foot, and cheap shot. It's okay BUT if it happens to them, Mario is going to give the league a stern talking to.

That was a pretty bad flying elbow. He prolly will and should get suspended for that. Problem is....without Cooke, they won't be able to protect the stars. They have to have a couple enforcers, otherwise people will keep going after Sid's head. I dont have a problem with Cooke being suspended for these hits that aren't brought about by anything...that's fair, but I have no problem using him to retaliate when people go after our stars (i.e. prepare to get your ass beat Victor Hedman).

The Rangers do fine protecting their own with a cheap shot artist. Dale Hunter got what 30 games for the shot on Turegeon, because he is a Pen, Cooke will get 2 games and end someones career again (just like Savard).

Avery is a cheap shot artist. He might not be as bad as Cooke and he might be more into agitation, but lets not pretend he's not a cheap shotter, too.

IMO, Cooke will get at least 5 games...maybe 10.

whose career did Avery end? How many times did he get suspended this year? you realize he didn't play at all, right?

So Avery has to end someone's career to be a cheap shot artist? Come on man. We all know he's a biatch and a thug. He's not as bad as Cooke, but you're losing credibility by defending Avery on any issue, ever.

The NHL is such a bush league, they never take action on this stuff, there will be something done just for show and then the wink wink, it's OK culture in the back ground that permeates this sort of thing.

It's no wonder the NHL is about 10th in interest in this country behind things like NASCAR, UFC, WWE, PGA, etc.

you defend Cooke by saying he is needed to protect the Pens stars. You do realize that Prust does that for the Rangers and Avery hasn't done anything this year. Avery talks crap and fights, he doesn't end careers.

I didn't "defend" Cooke. I said I don't mind him going after people for retaliation purposes, but I have no problem with him getting suspended for dirty play that isn't initiated by the other side.

Matt Cook is a POS. I don't care if you need an enforcer. You can have an enforcer who is a cheapshot POS. If the NHL doesn't suspend him for at least the rest of the year I will not watch another game. With his history and the NHL cracking down on heashots he doesn't deserve to play. He has no respect for the game and I'm tired of the NHL ignoring stuff like this. How many Moore's do we they need?

In retaliation, its absolutely ok. This is a BILLION dollar investment, and we WILL protect him. There will never be any more David Steckel's or Victor Hedman's getting away with ****. Never again. If people go after Crosby's head, there will be a huge and massive response and I have no problem whatsoever with that.

If, however, a thug like Cooke takes a run at someone not in retaliation, then sure, he should be suspended and fined heavily for acting unacceptably and irresponsibly. In the instant case, its the latter, so I have no problem whatsoever with the NHL throwing the book at him. He did threaten that guy's long term health for no reason, so yes...he needs it coming to him.

The Red Wings do fine without enforces, if your stars aren't pussies they don't need protection.

Cooke should be banned for life, he is the biggest cheap shot artist in the game. Lets see Mario put his money where his mouth is:
We, as a league, must do a better job of protecting the integrity of the game and the safety of our players. We must make it clear that those kinds of actions will not be tolerated and will be met with meaningful disciplinary action.

http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/story/2011/02/13/sp-nhl-isles-snow-surprised.html#ixzz1HAmyorDE

Lets see him suspend Cooke, he feels he has a shared responsibility of protecting the safety of the players.

If cooke ever did anything to retaliate i would be fine with it, but he is mostly the instigator of it, i mean who did marc savard go after to get his shot ?

I don't follow the hockey, so you'll have to excuse me... but isn't this one of the basic tenets of hockey? I watch the Tulsa Oilers fight other teams on occasion. Every once in a while a game brakes out where they try to use sticks to propel a black disc into a net. I think this is to give the occasional breather between rounds.

So now your insinuating that Steckel's hit on Crosby was intentional? In no way does Steckel target Crosby. Steckel is trying to push up ice and Crosby skates into his path.

Let us see if hypocrisy plays here with the Penguins. I will chime in and say that a Flyers fan will make a comment here that if Cooke was one of their players, he would be banned from the league until 2014. Havent gone past this post yet so my guess is probably a guarantee.

Moore beat Cooke's ass in a fight that night.

That shot on McDonagh was clearly premeditated. Cooke should be gone for good. He's just trying to hurt people.

Ah, the dirty Pens. Lest we forget Brooks Orpik almost killing Eric Cole in 06'? There is a culture in Pittsburgh that extends far beyond one individual player. Crazy how it took Eric Cole 5 years to get back to his old playing style. A broken neck will do wonders to a players psyche. Eric Cole is 10^100,000,000,000,000 a man in comparison with thugs like Orpik, and Cooke.

It is really not much different than people caring about children, hockey players have about the same amount of teeth as your average baby, they make about the same sounds, produce about the same amount of secretions and they fall down about as much. Really the only difference is that hockey players are bigger, faster and marginally more violent.

The real enforcers are gone, but guys like Joey Kocur, Marty Mcsorley, Bob Probert, Rob Ray, Donald Brashear, Dale Hunter. These are real enforcers, some of them were despicable human beings (I am looking at you Mcsorley) others were talented hockey players (Probert and Hunter) but they were all guys who at some point protected a super star or two.

When was the last time Matt Cooke went out and put a beat down on someone who had taken liberties with Crosby or Malkin? Cooke is a cheap shot artist with no respect for other players, he doesn't go out and fight, he doesn't put up the fists when people challenge him. Over the last 2 seasons he has fought 9 times, been beaten 5 times, drawn twice and has won fights again Pominville and Rob Niedermayer, neither of whom are fighters.

Cooke is a pussy and he knows it.

He is right, that Penguins players are out there publicly criticizing Cooke tells you just how little respect he has around the league.
