Found April 21, 2013 on The Pensblog:
This immediately reminds us of that episode back in the 2009 playoffs when cops were called to some kid's house because he said he was gonna kill Ovechkin or something on a message board. Some site called Red Scarf Union is organizing a Matt Cooke Hate Fest. It actually sounds pretty serious. Wouldn't be surprised to see the local police notified. Read more about this Hate Fest here. The SenShot website is not a fan of the Hate Fest.

Jack Edwards blast Matt Cooke and then apologizes for it; also, Cooke hit on Adam McQuaid

So, I ask you. What is wrong with Jack Edward's comments? "Nominating Cooke for the Masterton is about the equivalent of nominating Sirhan Sirhan as the prisoner of the year," Edwards said. Personally, I don't have a problem with those comments. Cooke is a reckless, dirty and dangerous player, who is responsible for many random, bush league acts on the ice over...

Dingle, dangle, dork: Cooke, Keith offer impolite remarks

A pair of gender-related comments have me shaking my head this morning, I suppose proving that hockey is an equal-opportunity sport when it comes to placing one's feet in one's mouth (perhaps on both sides of the digital voice recorder). When Matt Cooke played in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 3-1 win over Ottawa, visiting Canada's capital for the first time since accidentally...

Jack Edwards compares Matt Cooke to Sirhan Sirhan

Emotions were running high following a moving pregame ceremony as the Boston Bruins hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday afternoon, just hours after an extensive manhunt for one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects concluded.  Unfortunately, this emotion apparently got the best of NESN announcer Jack Edwards as he made an inappropriate (and bizarre) comparison between...

Boston announcer compares Matt Cooke to Sirhan Sirhan

We as sports fans are passionate, sometimes overly. Go on any message board or large commenting section about a controversial topic and you will observe anonymous individuals making statements that are more insulting and callous than they are creative. However, this is not something you expect from a commentator or play-by-play man in a sport. Though they may have the same type of...

Should the Pens even dress Matt Cooke tonight?

Reasonable question: If you are the Penguins, do you dress Matt Cooke in Ottawa tonight? Chances are nothing will happen Monday night when the Pens and Sens square off. However, the Senators, their owner and their bizarre fan base seem intent on starting something. Honestly, we wouldn't be surprised if the Senators open the game by showing the results of Eugene Melynk's ...

Claude Julien Criticizes Matt Cooke’s ‘Typical’ Hit on Adam McQuaid, Calls It ‘Cheap Shot’

BOSTON — The Bruins are obviously no fans of Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke, and they aren’t afraid to let anyone know about it apparently. Cooke was in the middle of things again Saturday night when he delivered a questionable hit to Boston defenseman Adam McQuaid during the second period of Pittsburgh’s 3-2 win over the B’s. Bruins coach Claude Julien was clearly...

What's Cooke'ing? Matt Cooke and the Penguins Return to Ottawa

Today is the day Matt Cooke makes his first appearance in the nation’s capital for the first time since his skate blade cut seventy-percent of Erik Karlsson’s Achilles tendon. Tonight the Senators will present their ninth annual Canadian Forces Appreciation night and depending on who you ask, this may be the only ‘presence’ the Senators will have in the building tonight...

Video- Oh Jack Edwards

I am sorry for insulting Matt Cooke, the Pittsburgh Penguins, the National Hockey League, and anyone else upset by my Cooke comments. — Jack Edwards (@RealJackEdwards) April 20, 2013   I made a mistake.My fault all the way.This is my apology.Bad week, bad emotional reaction by me. — Jack Edwards (@RealJackEdwards) April 20, 2013 update 2:00pm, replaced the...

Ottawa Columnist: Matt Cooke is focused on my Penis

Well the saying " don't tell them dick," just got a new meaning. There is no way we could ever make this up. Don Brennan, who is a complete nutjob, wrote one of the more bizarre columns of all-time shortly after the Penguins beat the Senators. Brennan and his disdain for the Penguins is very well documented.  But even this is a little extreme. Brennan apparenty...

Penguins Thug Matt Cooke Returns to Ottawa

Tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins travel to Ottawa to play the Senators and this will be the first matchup between the Senators and Penguins since the defenseman Erik Karlsson was injured by a check by Matt Cooke. From reading some of the news articles around the web, it would appear that this is going to be one of those must watch games. One almost has to suspect there will be...

Will Matt Cooke Have A Target On His Back Tonight In Ottawa?

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun, But despite his pleas of innocence afterwards, Cooke has twice been suspended for hits to the head, and he did end the career of Boston Bruins centre (and Orleans native) Marc Savard. He has said he's changed his ways, but not everybody is convinced. In fact, most still see him as one of the sneakiest and dirtiest players in the league...

Pens beat Sens 3-1 on "Hate Matt Cooke Day" in Ottawa

The Ottawa Senators did everything in their power to exact revenge on Matt Cooke for his hit on Erik Karlsson from earlier in the season. Unfortunately, they forgot to show up for the first 40 minutes of the game and ultimately fell to the Penguins 3-1, Monday night. Pairing the loss with a win by the Winnipeg Jets, the Senators now lead the 8th and final spot in the Eastern Conference...

John Toperzer: The @RealJackEdwards, really? Pens beat Boston, 3-2, Saturday afternoon

poll by twiigs.com If you missed Jack Edwards’s flippant, ignorant comments about Matt Cooke, here they are. The change in Matt Cooke following a suspension for elbowing the Rangers’ Ryan McDonagh 10 games before the end of the 2010-11 season is one of the most remarkable and unbelievable transformations I’ve ever seen in hockey. For a 30-something to...

Game 45: Penguins-Senators Recap

The Ottawa Senators were the team with something to play for but you would have never known it by their approach to the game. This contest was just weird. Everything about it. Even down to the pregame. Matt Cooke told an Ottawa reporter that he had no balls so the guy decided to write a…

Game 46: Penguins-Sabres Preview

Can Jack Edwards please call this game? Steve Ott and Matt Cooke on the ice at the same time. Edwards would be so confused seeing two versions of Sirhan Sirhan on the ice. It would terrify him. I’d say that it would cause him to lose his mind if that was something that hadn’t already…
