Matt Cooke is a dirty player! Remember how he blew up Vinny's shoulder on the last game of the season a few years back? Cooke has a very bad past when it comes to intent to injure players on the ice. He was a good little boy for 18 months but last night the devil in him returned with this knee on knee direct hit on the Wild defense man, putting him out of the playoffs. Cooke has been offered an "in person" interview with the player safety board if he wants. Otherwise, he can do it by phone.

With his past of injuring players, look for a lengthy suspension. At least 5 or more games, that could extend into next season.
