MATT CARKNER RUMORS & GOSSIP

RIGHT ON THE CHIN

Milan Lucic whoops Matt Carkner in fight

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic is an absolute force; he’s the ultimate power forward.  He will take on anyone in a fight, and can still be productive on offense.  He scored 26 goals last year, and 30 goals the year before.  Lucic just utterly destroyed Carkner in this fight, despite both of them being about 6’4″ 230.  Carkner went down in the TKO, and I’m sure he...

Matt Carkner To The Avalanche? No, Long Island

Carkner Rejects One Year $700k Offer

While the news that Matt Carkner had rejected a contract offer from the Senators is not new, the Ottawa Citizen's Wayne Scanlan added a wrinkle on Twitter last night. Sens' 1-year offer, no raise, for D Matt Carkner, for all he's done for club, is a slap in the face. Source: "he'll get his deal" (as UFA) — Wayne Scanlan (@HockeyScanner) June 29, 2012...

In light of the knee injuries that...

Losing It with Matt Carkner

So Carkner wasted no time exacting his pound of flesh Saturday night, roughing up Boyle for a second before coldcocking him twice followed by a series of gratuitous body shots at ice level. Boyle's man-handling of Karlsson in the series opener set the stage for this incident, which many have argued was a deserved response. Maybe so, Carkner was just doing his job right...

NHL discipline continues to miss the mark with Carkner's suspension

[youtube]KtqDnXXotCc[/youtube] Matt Carkner has been suspended one game for his actions in the second game of the Ottawa / New York series. That sound you might hear is thousands, if not millions, of NHL fans laughing and mocking at how once again the NHL discipline department has missed the mark.  One game? Seriously? Did they actually mean one game per punch landed by Carkner...

Rangers-Senators brawl to start Game 2
