    When dealing with this type of situation, I am a big believer in seeking revenge strategically, where it hurts, instead of going after Cooke directly.

    If Cooke hits Rask when the score is close, take the powerplay, and score.  That's the best revenge.

    If Cooke hits Rask in garbage time, the revenge needs to come right back to the Pens crease.  Hit Vokoun.  This is where Thornton shouldn't always be a gentlemen.  If Cooke plays dirty with Rask, make sure Vokoun gets it back two-fold.  It makes much more sense than chasing Cooke around.

    And when you 'lose an edge' and barrel into Vokoun, say "sorry, but you can thank your buddy Matt for that one."

     



    Fletch, you described something I heard Wendel Clark say a while ago in a radio interview.  He said in his day payback was on an equal measure basis.  If someone on the other team delivered a cheap shot to a top player on his team, the response wasn't to go after the one who administered the blow. 

     

    He said guys immediately knew what to do; go after a top player on the other club and punish them every chance they got.  He saw it as the only way to properly even a score and suggested this action made some less inclined to try on anything stupid knowing their best players could suffer the same fate.

     




    It's a good thing this isn't really how things are done.  Imagine if some Bruin had gone out and drilled Crosby or Malkin in the head with an elbow and ruined his life also.

     

    "You injure our star and we'll injure your star" is bogus. 



    Agreed.  It's misdirected.

    I'm no Cooke apologist (obviously) but this is an old video.

    Also interesting is the incredible dives performed by DiPietro.  Goalies these days are worse than a bastid child of a French Canadian and a Swede.

     




     

    True but for Cooke to get called all 3 times ON HOME ICE speaks volumes

     



    He got called on home ice 3 years ago 3 times? I don't like him but he has changed his game and bringing up a video 3 years old isn't going to tarnish his reputation.

     



    His coach and Crosby weigh in on this.  As expected they support the notion of him altering his style.

    You mean after NAS right?

     

    Seriously though, I don't think either player gets suspended.

    I don't think a suspension is coming.  Getting tossed out of Game 1 of the ECF is a pretty big blow.

    Whoa, I'm not talking about elbowing Crosby/Malkin in the head and trying to end a career.  I'm saying that if Cooke starts running and clipping Rask like he does the Dipietro video, the Bruins should bring the same treatment back to the Pittsbugh crease for Vokoun/Fleury.  As opposed to chasing Cooke around.

    As for the Cooke hit on Savard (a whole different topic to me) I hope a hit like that never happens to anyone...except maybe Cooke himself.

    I'd like to see Thronton in Vokoun's kitchen, and it's not because I'm mad at Vokoun.

    I would love to see a Bruin take out a star of Pittsburghs the way Savard was taken out.

    Get a grip yourself, I don't like Cooke, but you cannot deny he has not taken a headshot at anyone as he did in the past. He took less penalties than most of the Bruins last year and this year. I think he should never be allowed to play in the NHL again, but to say that the Karlsson incident was intentional is just blind hatred, albeit granted hatred. I honestly don't think he intended that to happen, skates come off the ice in the corner all the time and if you have one leg off the ice what is your natural reaction? Oh right to put it back down and stand up like any other 2 legged human.

    Matt Cooke is allowed to take cheap shots and get away with it. Oh please I do t want to hear from Mario either because he had Ulf Samuelson on his team taking out Neely's knee. So please don't mention that the Pitt organization warned Cooke one more time he out.

    This is lambda13's post which I agreed with.

    Cooke hasn't had any headshot suspensions. There are many who also didn't think the Karlson incident was intentional.

    I still stand by what the post stated. Good post lambda13.

    Re: Vintage Matt Cooke

    The only reason he gets a suspension is because of his reputation .  Although I think Shanahan won't suspend with the notion Cooke got enough punishment with a 5min major. I wonder what Torres will think when Cooke gets no game(s) ? 

    I lost electricity last night so did not see the hit, only heard on the radio ,  what did Kelly do , to who ? 

    Sorry Torres it's the suspension within the suspension rule. Bet nobody knows what I mean :)

    Sorry but this is blatantly false. Your statement makes it sound like he didn't do anything wrong. Many here are making this into less of a crime because McQuaid kept playing (maybe Adam is hurt and he's just on tough SOB?) Regardless, Cooke will not change and by not punishing him, the league is giving him a green light to do this again.
