The really impressive thing is how many here are buying the media spin, despite the replay.
No way the league was going to suspend Cooke. The NHL does not want a black eye especially coming out of a lockout. If they suspend him then the police may get involved and charge Cooke. This would drag on for years.
It would be difficult to explain how a player could cut another player's achilles tendon in their sport.
NHL pretends its an accident and life carries on. I expect TSN and SPSN analysts to do the responsible thing and play along so their bread and butter provider does not take a hit. Otherwise CNN reports on what happened and NHL gets another black eye on par with the Bertuzzi incident.
I called it yesterday. NHL brushed it under the carpet.
Opinion makers opinion making at it's worst.
