Primitive Screwhead: Go Not Penguins & Wild!


I can agree with that.  So, who are they playing?  Rangers & Blackhawks?

Is there an option for 'None of the above'?

/perhaps if Cooke was gone for the rest of the playoffs then I could cheer on the Wild (this round anyway)

That's the rub, isn't it.
I like rooting for the underdog and I can't root for the 'Hawks (much respect, just the whole B's losing to them in the Finals thing) but Cooke...
 
2014-05-02 09:43:21 AM  
I just concerned that when he gets back he's going to have a 'fark it, they're all out to get me' attitude & play even more recklessly/dirty.  About the only good thing that could come from that is if he plays stupid/malicious & hurts someone else this playoff season, the outcry would be so huge that probably the least they would suspend him for all of next season/life.

/I have this horrible mental image of him 'Savarding' Selanne two weeks away from his retirement
 
2014-05-02 10:03:23 AM  
I'm terribly conflicted.  Don't care for Rags or Pens, so what I'm really hoping for is a sink hole at center ice.  Going to root for Pens I guess.  I'd rather see the Bs/Pens next round just for the reversal of the Iginla drama from last year.

Last night's 2OT game was the perfect way to start off round 2.  And as I have no dog in the fight, I'm just rooting for more bonus hockey.

I met Cooke last summer. I umpired a baseball game that his kid was in and he was coaching. Seemed nice enough.

I've heard that too, dangerous assholes on the ice, nicest guy off of it.  Agitators like Perry, Avery, 'insert most hated 'x' player here', I may not like the way that they play but for the most part it is relatively clean 'dirty' play (in that they don't try to injure someone for months at a time, force them to sit in a dark, quiet room for the rest of their life).  You may need to sit down for a few minutes after getting the wind knocked out of you, or waiting for your eyeballs to go back into your head after being 'cup checked', but in general you aren't worried about your career when they're out there being a pain in the butt.

While in the past there seemed to be a lot more players that went out hunting the way Cooke seems to do every now & then, the stakes are so much higher now.  With even average players making a million or more per year, missing a season, getting hurt bad enough that you lose a step & aren't of NHL caliber any longer, etc can cause multi-generational ripples.  Decades ago, a career ending injury could be just that, the player went home & sold insurance or something else.  A few years sooner than he may have planned on but he always knew he'd have to do something else after hockey.  Today those missing 5 years could mean missing out on $10 million, more than enough to not have to work again if that's what he wanted.  Or money that could be used to buy a successful business & provide jobs for his family/friends for decades (assuming that he's bright enough to hire competent managers to help him run it). That's just for an average/slightly above average player, if he were to take out a player that people are projecting to be a big superstar, the potential 'lost' money could easily top $50+ million.

Now I am in NO way suggesting or encouraging this, but considering just how high the stakes can be, it really is surprising that Cooke or someone else who plays to injure & plays deep in 'dirty' territory hasn't had his knee introduced to a sledgehammer in some dark alley.  In his case it really is disappointing though, I had thought that he really cleaned up his game over this past year or two.  But, who here really knows these people & what they're thinking.  All I really know is what I've read here & on other sites & seen zipping around on my tv screen.

But then again it could easily be claimed that it is just the modern version of:

Very well said! I also have no problem with guys who hurt other players (bruises and whatnot) but it's the guys who knowingly injure that just need to go.

If they weren't up againt the Hawks, I'd actually be inclined to cheer the Wild becauze Bryz nearly cancels Cooke. Plus, I had guaranteed box seats, free airfare and lodging in CO for Round Two and the so screw you Wild.

The first game? Go good hockey, slight edge to NYR.
