Just want to quickly mention that it’s terrible to see Ottawa’s young, sensational defenceman Erik Karlsson gone for the season after a Matt Cooke skate blade cut his Achilles tendon in his left ankle.
I suppose we can’t know exactly, especially if he denies it till the cows come home, but to me it sure looked like Cooke was trying to do some damage with his skate. But it seems impossible to know for sure when he’s pleading innocent.
Karlsson is such an impressive young player. He controls the play, he’s got a big shot, he’ll attack like a forward, and he’s a dominant guy, a real special player. He’d look great in Habs uniform. It goes without saying that Ottawa and their fans are going to miss him in a big way.
As for Cooke……….
