Matt Cooke went OUT OF HIS WAY TO END THE CAREER OF MARC SAVARD...after he also did the same to a few other players on other teams. I applaud Edwards. Cooke is an alltime jerk, and has no business playing in the NHL while others can't even sleep or function due to concussions that this idiot forced on others. Jack, if you are reading this, you need a lot of work on your play-by-play, especially the over hyping of opposing players during broadcasts, and you often say stupid, really stupid things...But on this one, I agree. He is no better than Sirhan Sirhan...Cooke should never ever be considered for any trophy that is supposed to be about what the Masterson should be about. The NHL went soft on this guy and that's why he never got suspended or suspended properly. He is a joke, and he will soon let his ugly head rear again to murder some other player's career. Marc Savard was one of the most fun players to watch, and this idiot ends his career. Disgusting.
Who else had his career ended by Cooke?
Sirhan Sirhan murdered Bobby Kennedy, who was most likely going to be the next president. He shot him and killed him. Cooke elbowed Savard in the head. If Savard had retired at that point, he'd be living a normal life. He came back and got rung up again. And again. And that was that.
Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed. Marc Savard was knocked out. Savard came back and played more. Kennedy never took another breath.
No, Danny, they aren't the same.
Comparing hockey players to murderers is, in my opinion, just plain wrong. In this matter, I must agree with NAS.
The problem is Jack never compared a hockey player to a murderer, he compare a Hockey player being nominated for an award to a prisoner in Jail being nominated for an award.
