Anyone else interested in signing Matt Cooke? I know he's got a bad reputation with injuring Markov back in the 2010 playoffs, but he loves to hit, and although he isn't the biggest guy for what he does, he can still be a very effective bottom-6 guy for us, contributing some offense, but primarily making us harder to play against.
Not really. Almost 35 and under 6 feet. He's just a pain in the but and usually gets killed by opposing enforcer.
So Bergevin is sure that 5'9" rookie Dumont is a better fit than this guy?
Dumont is not necessarily better, but trust me, Lapierre is a head case and will wear out his welcome just like he has everywhere else. He's got size and some ability, but will never put it together. He always frustrated me in Montreal because I knew he could do better, but rarely did.
and a 30 second highlight does not a career make. See Perezoghin and Ward (Jason?) if you don't believe me.
