That is a tough, tough loss for the Sens. As much as I think Matt Cooke is a dirty player, I don't think it was intentional. It was just one of those hockey plays that happen. Still, I don't know how the Sens are going to recover from this and I really don't know if Karlsson will be the same elite level talent after this injury.
