For the last three days at the GM meetings in Boca Raton, Fla., Chiarelli lobbied Campbell to discipline Cooke. Chiarelli said that Cooke, who has a pair of two-game suspensions on his résumé (questionable hits to Artem Anisimov and Scott Walker), qualified as a repeat offender.
Chiarelli’s efforts were for naught.
“What I tried to convince the hockey ops staff was to take it outside of the current rule,’’ Chiarelli said. “Use the repeat offender criteria and implement an infraction on an intent to injure. That infraction and the repeat offender should distinguish it from the Richards hit. They didn’t want to.’’
