    The suspension should have included the entire playoffs, not just the first round if the Pens do move on.

    If the playoffs started tonight, the Pens and TB would hook up.  An unforseen sweep by one of them would result in the absolute earliest he could return being April 21, I think.  We'll see if this complete idiot gets the message but I say he probably won't. 

    I'm not saying its impossible but the only player of note I've ever read about who did an about-face in style of play was HOFer Stan Mikita of the Hawks.  He was said to be more of a woodchopper at the ankles and would pitch-fork  players in the gut. 

    He wasn't a head-shot artist like Cooke.  Mikita's quote was "It takes a long stick to score from the penalty box."  I think he went on to win a Lady Byng along the way.  Cooke appears to not have any respect or regard for his fellow players.  Wasn't he suspended just weeks ago for nailing someone hard (Tyutin of the Jackets?) from behind?  Too bad his consequences didn't include the entirety of the playoffs.

    I think it should have been Rest of Season + Playoffs + Psychiatric evaluation. Is this dude even mentally stable?

    Re: Cooke suspension

    Considering this is the NHL, it looks like a fair suspension.  Still wish he'd be gone for the whole playoffs, but hey...

    Finally, the cement head of the NHL gets a worthy suspension. Maybe this gets him to grow a brain.......but don't count on it.

    Re: Cooke suspension

    Lemieux, in his letter to Gary Bettman last week, suggested fine amounts based on the length of suspension to the player:

    • 1-2 games–$50,000 fine to team

    • 3-4 games–$100,000 fine to team

    • 5-8 games–$250,000 fine to team

    • 9-10 games–$500,000 fine to team

    • 11-15 games–$750,000 fine to team

    • More than 15 games–$1 million fine to team

    “If a player is a repeat offender during that season, the fine to the team would double,” wrote Lemieux.

     

    Think Mario will offer to write the NHL a check for $1.5 or $2 mil?

    I can't wait to hear him try to weasel out of his whining.

    Lemieux The current system punishes the offending player but does very little to deter such actions in the future. We need to review, upgrade and more clearly define our policies in this regard, so that they can provide a meaningful deterrence and effectively clean up the game.

    -- Penguins co-owner Mario Lemieux



    this is the same loser owner that employs matt cooke. hey mario good luck cleaning up the game how about starting with your own team u complete hypocrite.

    I thought the organization should've been fined as well.  I also thought they should've put Cooke on a final notice:  next time this happens he's banned from the league.

    Maybe Mario will finally see his own hypocracy.  Ever since his prized pony went down, he's been acting all self righteous about getting strict with the rules.  I hope he comes out admits that the suspension was deserved.

    Re: Cooke suspension

    This is "the guy", right?  The Bourque was "the guy" on the Bruin payroll and Lidstrom is "the guy" in Detroit.  That is, whatever this guy gets, that's the bar.  No one can go over the bar, no one deserves to go over the bar.

    Cooke is the guy more than Avery or Ott or Downie.  He's the guy who is the crapstandard for dirty little f'kers.  So whatever the NHL gives him, every other dirty bugger says OK, now I know the most I'd be forced to pay if I did X.  When you have a guy like this in the sights, you have to send a message.  Dale Hunter on Turgeon type message.  McSorley on Brashear message.  20 games.  Indefinite suspension.  Repeated actions described as intent to injure, actions posing a significant and tangible hazard to the image of the league and its product.  Bye.

    I think you could ban him for life and get it past a court challenge.

    I don't know... but if the league continues to warrant such dirty plays in the game, you'd rather have Cooke playing for your team than the opponents'.  There'd be no use for Lemieux or the Penguins to trade away Matt Cooke and see him play for, let's say, the Flyers, and see your own players get hurt by Cooke.  The Pens don't have the power to stop Cooke from playing hockey.

    He'd be facing the same problems one way or the other.  'Cause then, he'd have his own players hurtin' and Bruins' fans calling Lemieux an hysterical hypocrite for whinning about his own players' injuries. 

    There's no way out of this with what I've been reading as of late on this board.  To have any credibility in front of any of you, Lemieux would need to come out when some player on another team gets hurt... and then you'd probably be asking why the hell is he intervening in another team's problems... or you'd be saying : "He's just coming out now like an hypocrite 'cause Crosby got hurt in 2011... and he's taking advantage of someone else's injury to get his message through."  Or he'd have to wait for that moment when there'd be no recent injuries, and you'd be saying : "Why is he whinning when there's no problems..."

    Funny bunch... !

    Wedgy,most of us were just surprised at the gall of Lemieux to complain about the state of the league,regarding dirty play,while he employs the dirtiest player on skates.

    I think everyone, including me, wants to hear what Mario will say after all of the whining and threats to "leave", but I have to give credit to Ray Shero, who released a very classy statement where he unequivically supported the suspension and did not defend Cooke in any way.  Appreciate another person calling it honestly and be damned with loyalty to one's own team.

    Re: Cooke suspension

    Wedgy, if we are all agreed that the NHL needs to do more to rid the game of dirty hits and protect player safety, we should all just take this as a sign of progress, and nothing more.  Bruins fans, by and large, resent of inconsistency of all of the posturing on this topic, and that includes Mario/Habs fans seemingly coming unglued only when their own players get hurt.  Sorry to generalize, but it just seems that way. 

    Cooke is the worst guy out there, agreed?

    Punishment for him should mean a lot more than punishment for Chara, for anyone sincerely interested in cleaning up the game.

    Bah... I tend to get irritated and I'm growing a little tired of ppl getting in the way of fundamentally good men, calling them hypocrites, as soon as they find the mere ounce of self-interest in their actions.  When's the last time you've seen someone do something devoid of any self-interests ?

    The topic was about Cooke's suspension, not about Lemieux's actions.  Didn't start it.

    We agree on that.  I appreciate the "seemingly".  It has a calming effect on my "habs fan nerves", lol.
