Nice to see that some posters are gutsy enough to come-out and support signing him.

Yes he was dirty and yes it goes back longer than just last season.

However I don't think we'll see more head-shots and such from the guy considering how even his teammates disapproved of it and considering all the hatred and media attention he got ... this is just a hunch, but I think he'll clean-up his act.

And, most importantly, a "clean" Cooke is a 3rd or 4th line winger that this team could use big time. Truth be said, if Cooke plays his game, all the hatred would be forgotten after a few good shifts.

Give it up with the "we don't want players with bad reputations" .... think with your brain not your feelings...

Also, consider that if we add a top 6, and surely we must, then Pouliot might find himself playing on the 3rd or 4th line.
So you want a head case in Artyukhin but Cooke is a no?

You do realize that Cooke is non-issue in dressing room despite everyone trying to make it seem?

I'd take 12 Cookes on my team before 12 Artyukhin's.
