Because he's Matt Cooke. Duh.

Cooke is a good signing. Underrated by most of HF.

I imagine he'd rather not lose all of his nice new contract.

Great at what he does and he'll be missed.

Here's a sip of tea, with pinky's up, to the 2013/14 Pens. Isn't it bad enough that during the past 2 weeks the Pens put out texts about Drake and a 12 year old girl liking the Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis line? If I wasn't a Penguins fan since about 76 I would flat out hate them.

He's gonna get his ass handed to him now that he's in the west. The tough grinding style won't let him get away with his cheap ****. Good luck cookie.

Very good Minnesota!
You trade in reality Cooke for clutterbuck and get Neidereiter for free.
Great great great signing!

Chuck Fletcher should seek medical attention immediately because I'm pretty sure he hit his head on something this afternoon.

Going to be really hard getting excited for a team that employs this gutless SOB.

Kind of liked the Wild the past few years. Now I have one gigantic reason to dislike them. I hope Cooke gets his ass kicked multiple times. And although he has avoided suspension lately he still makes borderline dirty plays. Yeah, he has some skill no doubt, but he's a little *****.

Cookie made his bones in the west while you were still thinking about going out with cheerleaders.

What a bunch of drama queens. Cooke, although a POS, is a very useful player. Good signing by Minny.

nah, man. all he does is brutally slash and board players and deliver knee-on-knee hits while plotting his next Achilles tendon assassination. he's not good for anything else.

I hate this signing, we're trying to trim salary so we trade Setoguchi for a 2nd round pick (awful return) and we sign this assclown to a contract FOR THREE YEARS (he'll be 37), at a cap hit ONLY HALF A MILLION LESS?

My friend asked me if I'd eat my words when the Wild won a cup.
Well, when that happens, Mike Yeo won't be coach, and Chuck Fletcher looks like he's trying really hard not to be the GM.
