Matt Cooke makes another dangerous play

From where I sit it looks like the Matt Cooke is back in trouble again...

For all it's hardly surprising, it's also quite sad. Cooke hadn't been in trouble in 18 months. Outside of his accidental cut on Erik Karlsson there hasn't been much out of Cooke, more importantly he hasn't been in the news. At least until game 3 against Colorado. It's hard to say what the NHL will do with Cooke, but let's face it he's going to get the book thrown at him. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Cooke gone for the rest of the playoffs. And he probably should be. This won't be a suspension just based on the latest hit, but on everything over Cooke's career. It was a dangerous, stupid hit on a vulnerable player. Thankfully the first round has been more than good enough for fans to enjoy, even if we do end up talking briefly about stupid players making stupid plays.

At least that's how I see it and I sit in the cheap seats.
