On Saturday Night's Coach's Corner, Don Cherry weighed in on Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson's torn Achilles' tendon at the hand...I mean foot of Pittsburgh penguins forward Matt Cooke, and Cherry actually defended Cooke, suggesting instead that Karlsson was at fault for not taping his skate to his ankle:
BEST OF MAXIM
About once or twice every year, NHL fans emphatically agree on one or two pressing issues. One of those issues is that it’s time to kick Matt Cooke out of the NHL once and for all.
Cooke’s recent antics with the Senators are just one of many on his disgusting resume. From blind-side elbows to leg checks to cowardly hits from behind, the Penguins’ winger has done it all, and...
Apparently, the owner of the Senators Eugene Melnyk feels the same way I do about Penguins forward Matt Cooke. It looks like the Penguins are putting Cooke on notice. The last game between the Penguins and the Senators is going to be a dandy. It might be a blood bath.
"To have him [Karlsson] taken out by a goon [Cooke] it’s just unconscionable," Melnky said. "...
Matt Cooke reached out to Erik Karlsson and apologized for the freak, disturbing injury that likely ended the young defenseman's season. As seen in a report by the Winnipeg Sun, Cooke texted Karlsson but wasn't sure if the young star would respond to his apology.
Cooke's apology comes a day after Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk stated he didn't believe Cooke...
Matt Cooke is a certifiable goon, at least according to the owner of the Penguins forward’s latest victim.
There are many who have taken the odd stance of defending the noted cheap-shot artist, but Senators owner Eugene Melnyk is not happy with Cooke, and he’s apparently not happy with the league’s disciplinary system.

Move over deer antler spray. The newest craze in sports products? Cut-resistant socks.
Last week, the Senators all-star defensemen, Erik Karlsson, had his Achilles heel sliced by the skate of the Penguins Matt Cooke. It was a fluke play -- depending on who you ask -- but it was a play which made more NHL teams take preventative measures to ensure the safety of their team. Enter...
Late on this but the following is a transcript of Bryan Murray's press conference to update the media on Erik Karlsson's status. Credit should be given to Murray for staying composed and keeping it together. He's essentially the antithesis of Eugene Melnyk.
As always, my thoughts will be in bold.
“First of all an update on Erik – he had surgery...
Now that Erik Karlsson has suffered a season-ending Achilles tendon injury and joined Jason Spezza on the sideline, the Ottawa Senators appear doomed.How can a team overcome the loss of the NHL’s top puck-rushing defenseman after losing its No. 1 center to a long-term injury too? The answer, of course, is that it can’t – no matter how brave the Senators remain.“You know,...
Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson will be out for the rest of the season due to surgery on his Achilles tendon, which was sliced by the skate blade of Pittsburgh Penguins' Matt Cooke.
Senators owner Eugene Melnyk is pissed about losing the defending Norris Trophy winner, and thinks Cooke is a "goon," who shouldn't be in

Mid-Week Lite Version this for Week 5. Bigger Version will come next week. Erik Karlsson owners, I feel your pain. Sad to see him go out like that and hope that he’s able to be the player he was before the injury.
Here is the weekly breakdown for this upcoming week, Feb 18 – Feb 24:
4 GAMES: CAR, CBJ, CGY, COL, DET, FLA...
The Maple Leafs 3-0 victory over Ottawa on Saturday was the type of winning effort that Toronto fans are not accustomed to seeing.
The injury riddled Senators, without stars Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson outhustled and outchanced the Blue and White, but thanks to fortuitous deflections by Frazer McLaren and Tyler Bozak, an empty netter from John-Michael Liles and a stellar 34...
