I don't know why this Mason Raymond to Pitt stuff keeps showing up, sorry guys we don't need him and wouldn't give up Cooke for him.

Oh what a shame. We were all banking on you allowing Raymond to be traded to Pittsburgh.

No chance.

That game against Calgary was the last straw for me.

I think Gillis is waiting to see if Raymond can rebound to start the season.

It doesn't make sense to trade him right now when his stock is this low. Hopefully he can find his game, but if he doesn't, you can move him early in the season for the same return (nothing significant) that you would get now.

I would too except that he doesn't really fit anywhere. I'd prefer if Higgins and Hansen were our 3rd line wingers, so the only place left for him is the 4th line. Shouldn't we target a center?

The problem is that Alain Vigneault doesn't respect Cooke. AV doesn't mind agitators - as long as when they instigate something they are willing to answer the bell and stick up for their teammates. Remember AV is a former goon and he knows the price the heavyweights pay when guys like Cooke cheapshot people and then turtle.

I recall once incident in a game versus St. Louis shortly before he was traded - Cooke slew footed the St. Louis goalie when he played the puck behind the net. Initially there was no penalty called, but Eric Brewer grabbed Cooke, dropped his gloves and started throwing punches. The linemen separated them and the only penalty on the play was to Cooke. Brewer dropped his gloves and was wailing on Cooke, and Cooke got the penalty. The refs don't respect Cooke either.

He ran Langkow from behind and went on to turtle letting Ohlund fight Phaneuf.

I can tell you that Cooke was not well liked in the locker room his last time on the team. A couple years ago I played against a former enforcer for us and he mentioned to me that he had to step in and fight for Cooke more than a few times and Cooke never once thanked him for it. Cooke actually believed what he was doing (turtling) was a good thing.

I'm glad we dealt that piece of ****.

Perhaps a Raymond for a Niskanen trade could be worked around?

The Pens moved Michalek, so they're counting on Niskanen in the top 4 this season.
