Matt Cooke's 'Rap Sheet'
I know there is already a thread about his most recent cheapshot but I thought it wouldn't hurt to break up the conversation between his latest hit and his history of being one of the dirtiest players to put on skates. This guy is serious out of control and I'm shocked no one has tried to kill him on the ice. When you look at the list of the guys he is running you can see he is just going after the skilled guys and trying to hurt them, not hit them.
I tried to find video of all the incidents I could find history of, if I missed any let me know and I will add it. I tried to find the best video I could, if any, of each incident. Keep in mind some are worse than others but I think some could have turned out worse than they did.
