08:10 AM ET 03.28 | With his Norris Trophy candidate sidelined, Eugene Melnyk has some strong opinions -- and ideas. [Melnyk] is working closely with forensic doctors in Toronto, aiming to prove that the incident which resulted in the season-ending Achilles surgery to star defenceman Erik Karlsson was no accident. During a game on Feb. 13, the skate of Pittsburgh Penguins agitator Matt Cooke sliced the back of Karlsson's leg. ... There was no penalty or subsequent suspension to Cooke on the play, with officials on the ice and league disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan ruling that it was an unfortunate, but accidental, play. Melnyk, however, isn't satisfied. "I'm going to prove whether it was intentional or not," Melnyk said Wednesday.

Somehow, CSI Ontario doesn't have a great flow.

Eugene you are sounding a whole lot like a Montreal fan.

Since the whole incident was on tape for all to see I don't see how forensics will prove intent one way or the other. The only person who clearly knew his intent was Cooke. So, I don't see this proving anything!!!

Unless Cooke changes his tune and says he did it intentionally, we'll just never know for sure if he ment to cut/injure Melnyk or not!!!!!!!!!

I think he hopes the courts will allow the doctors to carve Cooke's heart out to examine it for intent.

Carve open Melnyk's head first to see if there is a brain in there.

we already know the answer to that!! :-)

Melnyk has lost what little mind he had to start with

When I saw it, I thought no way would a player ever - ever do something like that to a fellow player. But then I saw it was Cooke --- hmmm. By the way, how am I supposed to write something when the swim suit models next to the comment box keep luring my eyes towards them? Not fair... mmmm hello Kate! Do you like fat, hairy married men?

Melnyk is amongst the biggest clowns in the league.
