Sather: Cook Should Get 10 Games

Jesse Spector at the Blueshirts Blog reports that while John Tortorella took a pass on discussing the cheap shot elbow Matt Cooke landed to Ryan McDonagh’s jaw, Glen Sather had this to say…

“Don’t worry, he should get 10 games!”

…not sure if he’s able to but I’d like to see Sather make a call to Campbell to lobby for a stiff suspension.

McDonagh on the hit…

“I didn’t see him coming,” McDonagh said of Cooke. “I had no idea. I know it hurt, that’s for sure. “I’m sure he’s not trying to get his team a five-minute penalty. He’s probably just trying to finish his check, and just caught me – caught me wrong.”

…assuming when the mics aren’t on McD has a different take on the hit.

In the Penguins defense, here is what Dan Bylsma had to say after the game…

“I don’t think you can talk about eliminating head shots from the game, as we have, as an organization, and not expect that to be examined, as what looks to be contact right to the head, on the play. The league will look at that, and treat it as such.”

…the saddest part was watching all the Pens fans who cried about the Islanders cheap shots a month ago defend this guy on Twitter tonight. Didn’t Lemieux say he’d leave the game if this cheap stuff didn’t cease. Guess we should expect a press conference announcing that tomorrow.
