Personally, I'm glad we didn't bring in Cooke. I know he is a better player, and I know he cleaned up his act. However, he is still under the microscope perhaps more so than any other player not named Raffi Torres. There is also the potential for him to get stupid, throw one completely unnecessary hit, and suddenly our team is worse off because he is suspended.

Lapierre may be a bit more appealing than Hendricks because of a cheaper price tag, but he is not substantially better than Hendricks in terms of offensive ability (they are both mediocre at best) and Hendricks brings more toughness.

Cooke brings too much baggage, and Lapierre... I just can't stand that guy. Yes I'm biased
