Damn. I missed the goalie this time.
Whats amazing is not that Matt Cooke is number one on the most hated NHL player list. Whats shocking is how easy the choice of him as number 1 is especially with a guy like Sean Avery playing in the NHL.
If there is one guy that people will say should not be playing in the NHL because of on ice incidents its Matt Cooke.
He throws his body around in reckless abandon to anyone who happens to be in a vulnerable position without a care in the world.
He will hit your knees, head, back, face anything, as long as you are not in a position to retaliate or protect yourself.
He is the bad parts of Ulf Samuelsson, Scott Stevens and Sean Avery all rolled into one.
He basically went unpunished for maybe ending Marc Savard's career with this disgusting head shot from the blind side. Anyone who thinks this is a clean hit is not a hockey fan. 0:53.
Here is a compilation of cheap shot after cheap shot Matt Cooke has administered over his career with awesome commentary from Don Cherry.
Once your nausea subsides ask yourself how this guy still has a job in the NHL.
Let us not forget Matt Cooke also likes to run goaltenders. Rick DiPietro was run 3 separate times in the same game by Cooke.
In order to put a smile on your face after that disgusting compilation, here is one more to make you smile, compliments of Evander Kane.
Maybe Mario Lemieux should look at his roster before he calls anyone else's team disgusting.
