He's considerably cleaned up his game and good for him on that

Still, whenever something shady's going to happen and he's involved he doesn't get the benefit of the doubt, that's the price you pay for being a head hunting dbag for so long

I am very happy he's going to be in the western conference, it'll make it easier for Ottawa to take on the Penguins

Wouldn't want to have given him that third year as he's getting up there and might not be able to play tough minutes at 37, but he's a good add. Don't let his reputation erase the fact he's a solid, productive hockey player.
So, when does the Wild play the Pens?

Dying to see if Mario changes his tune.

Yeah I wonder what Pens fans will think if he gives Sidney another concussion? Or takes out Malkin's knee? It would be interesting to hear some of their responses to that.

Guy is going to make your team a better team. Give him a shot.
You just quoted proof that he shows no heart for a hockey player. Slimey play and a couple pks ≠ heart.

Change his tune about what? You do realize one of the main reasons Cooke changed his game was because of Mario, and telling him it won't be tolerated and if he continues they would get rid of him.

You do realize that right?

We would obviously be pissed, but at the same time, I don't think he will, because he hasn't tried anything like that in over 2 years, and since he's good friends with them, why would he try to hurt them?

I would change that "when" to "if".

If he injured a Penguin intentionally or anyone for that matter, then people who hate Cooke have an argument, but the fact is, he really hasn't done anything stupid in over 2 years, he's had some controversial moments, but none that were really intentional as far as hockey fans know, the only person that knows his intent is himself, nobody else.

I don't think he will intentionally take out another player, if he intentionally tries to injure a Penguin, I (and most Pens fans) will be pissed, if he intentionally tried to injure another player regardless, he should be disciplined. But until that happens, all anyone who hates Cooke can do is assume that's what he will do.

I disliked him before he first signed with us, and I hate him now. So there's one Pens fan's response to Matt Cooke

edit: And there was no point in between where I liked him

All this hate makes me miss Cooke even more.

Wild got a great player & great guy.

He always took too much crap for the Savard thing. It was a legal hit at the time & the Boston organization has never admitted their share fault in rushing him back.

if you're going to play that game, why not just jump to Hitler? he'd drive your weird little "points" home harder than Charles Manson would.

i don't even know why you bothered to respond to those posts. they're just trying to stir stuff up. they don't deserve a reasonable response (or any response).

I think he made that comparison because they're both people who have long histories of causing physical harm to other human beings on purpose.

It could have been that. Or it could have been the 10 game + first round suspension handed out by the league with the additional note that "next time, it'll be longer".

When the league actually cracked down on Cooke, he changed his act real quick.

Damn I wanted to become the most hated team in the league with him playing with Bolland on our third line.


That being said I would be afraid to see what Cooke would do seeing how he would feel Orr/Maclaren were there to back up his actions.

At least he is out West now.
