This guy has some nerve coming out and BASHING the league and the Islanders for what took place Friday night.
Learning starts at home, and this idiot signs a weekly paycheck to probably the dirtiest player in the NHL.
I don't like what Gillies did. I will say that first. It was careless and tasteless. Had he taken a shot like that at Cooke I would be singing a different tune however the kid he hit didn't deserve it. I am not saying that kid didn't deserve to take a few shots considering he was running at Islander players the whole game but not the shot given to him none the less.
Being an owner and hall of fame player he has the power to be heard. If he wanted to make a statement loud and clear then he should have dropped Cooke many hits ago. Cooke goes out looking to hurt people and put their careers in jeopardy.
The Islanders came out looking for revenge and to make a statement and they did just that. I don't think we will be seeing people taking liberties against the Isles anytime soon. The Pens will be especially careful next time. They aren't laughing now are they?
To go public and bash the league and another team for what took place is just a wimpy and hypocritical move on his part. If he would have so much as mentioned Cooke and said he doesn't condone that behavior from anyone including his own players then I think the peoples responses would have been much different.
At the end of the day Mario, you look like a fool, a hypocrite and just a flat out baby. Stop crying, you made your bed, now sleep in it.
