Do Pens fans like Matt Cooke?

I'm a Leafs fan first and foremost, but after that the Pens are certainly one of my favourite teams, absolutely love Crosby, Malkin and Staal. However, I cannot stand Matt Cooke. I'm kind of curious if legit Pens fans like Cooke, or feel that he's a d-bag who takes it too far?

I'd probably think he was a d-bag if he played for another team. But I'm glad he's on the Penguins.

He is a d-bag but he is our d-bag. I hate how he takes stupid penalties but I must admit he does his job right which is why he was re-signed. Just look out how he riles up the fans who aren't even a part of the other team.

I voted "no" here....but really my feelings are in between.

I really like Cooke as a player. Agitators are a part of hockey and he is damn good at his job. He is a great energy player and i definitely want him on the Pens (at least so we don't have to play against him).

HOWEVER, i wish sometimes he'd tone down the dirty stuff just a little bit. He was all over Dipietro last night....to the point is was almost comical. That third one i'd like to think he's just dodging the shot....but with it being cooker, and the fact he did it twice earlier that game (sat on him once, shoved a teammate on top of him the second time)....i have my doubts.

Cooke's no dummie. He's been passed around by a few teams but, every where he goes he's been successful being the same exact player that he is.

I think he's an idiot, but I'm glad he's on the Pens because I wouldn't want to see any of our guys go against him.

The guy simply brings it all the time. Finishes every hit and never takes a shift off.

Beyond the dumb penalties and the occasional dumb hit, he actually can play the game.

Every team has guys that you hate to play against, but love to play with. Matt Cooke is our guy. I love how he plays the game and love his style of play.

From my hockey background, I also love guys like Hartnell who play the game tough and really exploit just how far that line can be pushed.

Sums it up.

I'm glad he ran DiPietro a couple of times last night. The Pens need that, instead of the endless scrums, he's making the night horrible for the goalie.

Pretty much. I hate Hartnell, but I would take him on this team in a heartbeat.

I hate him. He's a disgrace to this organization and I regret ever being satisfied with him coming back.

The only thing that concerned me when the Pens signed Cooke was him backing down from fights and letting more important players get hurt in the process. He did that in Vancouver, and it was the end of him there.

He's been fine in that respect here, going with Thornton was something he would've never done with the Nucks.

Absolutely. Great third liner, good on the PK, brings a constant effort every night, and gets under everyone's skin.

I'd prefer to live without the choppy moments, but without them then he's not Matt Cooke.



If he was on another team I'd hate his guts, but he's not, so I love him.

No......Hartnell is a brainless Pee, whom does extremely stupid things that just baffle the mind, repeatedly.

I wouldn't want him at no point in time, keep that orange mange far away from the Black & gold.

I love the job he does. Look at our 5 +/- for each game in the past year and you will often see cooke in the + area. We need a guy like him on our team.

I can't tell if you are serious. If you are - just tell me why?

I understand why these guys don't look "great" to your average hockey fans, but Cooke really is one hell of a hockey player.

I am serious. His garbage antics disgust me. We aren't the Flyers. We don't need trash to win hockey games.

I love nothing more than a physical hockey team, but we aren't the broad street bullies.
