Unlike the Crosby play where the puck was no where near the hit and Crosby was turning up ice following the puck, Savard just shot the puck a split second before the hit and he payed for it.
"To have him taken out by a goon is unconscionable," Melnyk began. "Whether it was accidental, or whether it was reckless, or whether it was intentional, to me it doesn't matter.
"It's something that never should have happened. This player should never be playing in this league. It's a league for elite players," said Melnyk.
The Senators owner was asked if Cooke, who has been suspended five times by the NHL during his career, is a changed player nowadays.
"I don't buy any of that garbage. Five times? No, we're number six? How about seven and eight? At what point do you say, 'you know what? Maybe he's not changed.' You do this enough times, don't try to convince me or anybody else. People are way too intelligent. The guy gets suspended five times. That's how many times he's been suspended, never mind how many times he's not been suspended.
I don't condon Cooke's play a few years ago and called him out, but that looks like a different Cooke. No to mention when Cooke wanted to injure someone he'd go for the head and only the head so that is also something to think about.
Taking out the red line was a good idea to speed up the game so players can get more concussions.
An ironic post from you, a Red Wings fan who employs the dirtiest hitter in the league in Niklas Kronwall. I don't think he has ever made a hit where he did not leave the ice to cheap shot someone.
"People think hockey is a sport. Hockey is not sport. Hockey is three activities going on at the same time: ice skating, playing with a puck, and beating the sh** out of somebody. If these guys were intelligent at all, they would do these things one at a time. First you go ice-skating, then you play with a puck, then you go to the bar and beat the sh** out of somebody. The day would last a lot longer, and these guys would have a whole lot more fun.
the late great..
Tell you another reason hockey is not a sport -- it's not played with a ball. Anything that isn't played with a ball can't be a sport. These are my rules, I make them up. Hockey is played with a puck. What is a puck? I never even heard of a puck outside of hockey. The only other place you'll find a puck is in the urinal to control the smell in the bathroom. And as far as I'm concerned, any game where the main object is something that came out of a urinal is definitely not a sport."
