Cooke is a pansy for not wanting to take the buckets off after Thornton asked. Probably too scared of the beating he was gonna take. Clear domination to Thornton. Not sure how at least one of you says Thornton sucks. Must be stupid or something.
Seriously people??!! HOW THE F#CK COULD ANYBODY SAY COOKE WON THIS FIGHT??????
... and for all you righteous pukes who are dissing Thornton for breaking the goddamned stupid "code" by punching Cooke after he was down, if you EVER played a sport, or EVER had a friend, or EVER had delusions of being a man, put yourself in Shawn's skin for a second: your teammate Savard was put out, maybe forever, by a cheapshot from Cooke, don't you think you owe it to Marc to punish the gutless f@ggot?? get real and recognize that was EXACTLY what Thorton should have done in that situation...you people make me sick; please cease to exist!!!
Well, all this shows is that Thornton has less class than even Cooke. Sure the hit was dirty, if Cooke knew trouble was coming. Cooke went to see Thornton he know what was coming, and Thornton meat head goes and sinks lower. Punches after the fights over. Thornton is a retard, im surprised he doesn't wear a drool catcher on his helmet.
Thornton won the fight and Cooke was willing. All of that is beside the point. The point is it wasn't good enough. When I first watched hockey and a guy gets a shot like Savard did there would be players, equipment and blood on the ice. The 1970 cup team was there. I'm totally embarrased that hockey has been knocked down by a bunch of P C parents with nothing to do but get in other people's business. There should have been a lot more damage done to Cooke and his team when they jump in. This sport was designed a certain way and the P C parents are making it almost deadly to play by their rules. I say pick a couple guys to make a sacrifice and take a suspension. Pay the coaches fine. It would have been better than what I saw last night.
bleepin' refs should have let Thornton drag that gutless puke back to his feet so he could have pounded him more.
PittsburgDan and GSP09, you ignorant fks, this wasnt about anyone but Cooke, otherwise, panty waist Sidney would be on life support today.
JaCort16, your logic is borderline insane, not to mention your description of what happened. Get back to the quilting bee with the girls you moron.
bruiseyoureye, Goddard was on the ice for a total of 3:31 you stupid fk. and most of that was time was skating on and off the ice for intermission. Thanks for reconfirming the fact that you still are one of the biggest clowns posting on this site
and the best for last, yes you , boldbilly, queen of the unbiased posts(ha!),
I too read the posts and yours tops them all for being classless and ignorant, among other things. The rules of engagement went out the window when your boyfriend refused to remove his helmet/visor and he only exacerbated the issue went he turtled. This wasnt a close fight and no one expected it to be other than dik suking, panty waist figure skaters like yourself.
Can't believe that cheap pice of **** Cooke actually dropped the gloves. And I'm glad he did because I loved seeing him get his ass handed to him. He's still a punk, especially for using the Calgary rule and not losing the lid but what do you expect from a scumbag like that.
And for the guy who was saying that that Cooke isn't a cheap player...What in the F#CK are you talking about. I watched that cheap piece of trash in Vancouver for years, cheap shot guys with knee on knee hits, elbows, late hits, hits to the head and then ran away like a scared little bitch. He's the prime example of a player who hides behind the instigator rule. You wouldn't have seen any of his antics 15 years ago because he would have learned quickly that he has to pay for his actions and if he refused to, he'd probably end up dead.
He deserved what he got, INCLUDING the punches while he was on the ice. It's too bad that it was Thornton giving him the beating as he's not the biggest or toughest guy around and seems like a pretty straight up guy. It would have been nice if this had of been years ago and a nutjob like Gaetz, Odjick, Brown, Twist etc. would have hurt him the way he deserves to be hurt. Then again, he wouldn't have done it years ago
good job cooke for dropping them. actually pretty descent fight.
i really like thorton,besides him the bruins showed no heart ,no emotion.
where was lucic. the pens actually played more physical and out hit them.thats why they are cup winners and boston wont make the playoffs.
i'll take thorton anyday though!
lucic had a chance to fight goddard after goddard nearly killed him center ice!
bruins fans should be embarressed! bruins dont deserve thorton...
but no one even checked crosby! gutless team! pens out hit those heartless *******!!
good for thornton to take care of the puke rightaway..shawns a code guy but not to this idiot! pittsburgh dan,,first off goddard on ice only 5min,,and there was no reason to go after him..why didnt he challenge a bruin? because he dont like cooke either!!
