Last night the Ottawa Senators dreams of making the playoffs were pretty much crushed when Matt Cooke accidentally sliced the Erik Karlssons’ left Achilles, which you can see in the video below. Many claimed shenanigans since Cooke has a history of being a total asshole, but if you study the footage it’s easy to see it was a run-of-the-mill play that went terribly wrong.
The Sens confirmed the Norris Trophy winner would require surgery and be out indefinitely.
While most Sens fans immediately took to Twitter to proclaim their outrage at Cooke, others worried about the status of their fantasy team. Because who cares if the star dman’s season is over, WHAT ABOUT THEIR FANTASY TEAM!?!
Everyone’s just so caring you know? It’s heartwarming shit!
(Full disclosure, I also own him, and wondered, silently, who would take his place).
