Cooke says Karlsson incident was "a complete accident."


And I believe him, it didn't look intentional one bit, the only reason his skate is that high is because he was going to put it down inbetween Karlsson's legs to pin him down, obviously he missed and cut his leg, but I mean it all happened in a second, anyone who thinks it was intentional is daft.

Terrible blow. Hope he recovers ok. Might be time for someone to design a wraparound shin pad.

I think it was probably just instinct on the Cookers part.

It was just Cooke Cookeing. The man can't help himself.

The pro-Pittsburgh US media will suggest sneaky Karlsson was trying to 'DULLEN' Matt Cooke's blade...

God help us if this 'accident' were caused by a Vancouver skater. There'd be a UN tribunal for ICE-crimes.

Of course it was an accident. I can't believe anyone in the media even started to suggest otherwise.

Just look at the play. He's not even looking at where Karlsson's leg is.

It was a freak play, just like Bieksa's two leg lacerations. When you skate around with giant blades on your feet, accidents are bound to eventually happen.

If there was anyone that deserved to be falsely accused of something it may be Matt Cooke. I'm just joking, but it is kind of on interesting twist off fate.

Too bad for Karlsson, and too bad for us that watch hockey. The NHL just got a little more boring tonight.

Despite his history, I think Cooke's innocent on the play.

As for Karlsson...brutal, just brutal. Let's hope that this injury doesn't take away from his ability in the future, because that's one serious injury and he's an amazing talent. Here's hoping he makes a full recovery.

That really was a terrible accident. I wish him speedy recovery.

I agree with DeNiro that these kinds of accidents are bound to happen with that many sharp blades on the ice. Just look at the game pics on the Canucks website and you can see how often their skates are off the ice and in dangerous areas. Seriously, it's amazing more guys don't get cut.

He is a psychopath. I think the stomp motion is just evil instinct on his part. The man doesn't really think about this stuff, it just happens.

If he's try to pin the guy with his leg as has been suggested, why was he not more conscious of where his actual leg was. Senators management isn't just up in arms because its cooke, its careless.

Damn looked really painful, we all remember when the same thing happened to Bieksa twice.

I highly doubt it was intentional though. I doubt anyone would be accusing him of doing it on purpose if it weren't Matt Cooke. Unless Cooke is a complete ninja.

Definitely looked deliberate. No way Cooke needed his skate to come up and then down exactly on that spot on that particular play.

Esp. considering it's Cooke, this should be looked at by Shanny. But i doubt he'd be suspended regardless.

This pretty much destroys Ottawa's playoff hopes, you'd think.

He never once peeked down to see where his leg was, everything can happen so fast in a split-second and it's very difficult to keep track of every little thing in a fast-paced game such as hockey.

If anything, you should look at Karlsson's leg, it was closer to his own leg then normal and he was in a somewhat awkward stance at the time of the pin on the board, he was moving his leg back to the normal stance and while in that moment, Cooke's skate was coming down and caught Karlsson, I feel it was unintentional but to each their own I guess.

Why do you have to lift your skate to pin him? Can't you keep your skate on the ice and do the same thing?

it looked like he was starting to lose his balance before they went into the boads, i think that's why his leg came up.

cooke losing balance while going into the boards is the only thing that saves him, watching aaron wards breakdown, but when you watch it in slow motion it sure does look suspicious.. given that its cooke on the best defensman in the league I dont blame people for being suspicious.

Accidental, but yeah, with Cookie's history people have reason to wonder. We're lucky stuff like this doesn't happen more often what with the high speed of hockey and how often player's skates leave the ice. I was sure Lappy was gonna get cut last night when Kassian crushed Coyle and his legs went right up towards him.

That looks pretty damn intentional, and regardless of his turning around his game Cooke's reputation is enough.

I see that as a suspendeable play.
