I find it amazing how everyone is putting the other "goons" in the league in with Cooke. I don't see him as a goon but a cheap shot artist.
I am a Sens fan. I am a huge Karlsson fan. I also was one of the first people to say I thought that it was an accident. Most other people I have talked to thought he did it on purpose (please note that none of them are Sens fans but mostly Habs and Leaf fans)
Could it have been on purpose? Sure. Does anyone know for sure? Only Cooke. The fact that people don't believe him is a bed that he has made for himself.
All I can say is have Cooke cut the Achilles tendon of
Teemu Selanne, Jarome Iginla, Patrick Kane, Matt Duchene, Jaromir Jagr, Henrik Zetterberg, Anze Kopitar, Henrik Sedin, John Tavares and so on. I wonder how their owner would react

He's an owner that just saw his team's playoff hope die.
that's a huge lost for any team, financially as well
totally biased opinion

I'm a Leafs fan and it was a accident though if it happened to Kessel I'd be outraged about the injury to the Leafs star player. I understand the outrage of the Sens owner but it crosses the line IMO and I'm surprised he wasn't fined by the league.
Also as a Leafs fans Karlsson is one of the best players in the game and it is bad for the NHL.

Could've happened to anyone, sadly if it happened to a 4th line winger or a teams 6th defenseman I doubt very seriously anyone aside from that player,or his family would've cared (sad reality of all sports).... was it careless?! Absolutely... was it a cheap shot or something a "goon" would do? Probably not... Lets face it...Its the Ottawa Senators, they didn't have a snowballs chance in an inferno of making the playoffs anyway.. much less winning it all... Just something to think about.
