She still has Portia.

Actually, it's more like "Pens fans now join the rest of the world and call Cooke a cheap-shot dirtbag who'd go in elbows-high on his grandmother when she bogarts the poutine."

Why do people hate Crosby's penis?

*rereads headline*

Never mind.

My feeling was always that as long as Cooke is in the nhl, I'd rather have him on my team than not.

So, ban him!  Ban him now!

Wild fans may find they preferred Clutterbuck.

The Wild had a hole to fill after giving us Clutterbuck. Problem solved.

El Nino is more than capable of making that trade bite us in the ass, and Garth probably should have traded him before his value went to hell. But with that said, the idea of a Clutterbuck/Matt Martin/Casey Cizikas line is all kinds of fun. Opposing teams are going to HATE them.

I guess Weber had better watch his Achilles tendon, right Sens fans?

Exactly.

/But, really, he's cleaned up his act.

Cooke goes Wild!

So, who's the hate sink for the team now? That's an awful lot for Crosby to handle by himself.

As a Wild fan i'm pretty torn. Cooke has been an assclown for years, but seems to have cleaned up his act and become a competent two way player. Clutterbuck was fun to have on the team and a fan favorite, but had a pretty dissapointing year.

Possibly, but I really think Cooke may be a better all-around player.

I don't think Cooke will fill the hole left by losing Clutterbuck's mustache

Good, maybe someone from the western conference can shorten his career.

I will miss the Clutterbuck in Minnesota. This now gives me a chance to call Cooke a cock smoker in person with a sheet of glass between he and I.
 
2013-07-07 07:35:47 PM  
Nah, still plenty of d-bags on the team to hate besides Sidney

Yeah, but you hate the laundry

Hmmm, I think that takes care of the last team no one had found an excuse to hate yet. Has DGB given a final adjudication?

That really sucks. I was glad to have Clutterbuck out of the conference; Cooke is so much worse.

Matt Cooke is what you find underneath the urnial-cake in a Ugandan disco club.

Not a Pens fans in the slightest, but props to Cooke for cleaning up his act in a way that makes him no better or worse than your average NHL player. No angel out there, but nothing close to what he had been.

What will be interesting to see, though, is if he reverts back to the form which led to his reputation in the first place.

It might.

At the beginning of last year, Shero took him aside and explained to him how little patience was left for his act. What's not known is if Shero said (or Cooke understood) it to be "patience on Shero's part" or "patience on the NHL's part".

If Cooke thinks (incorrectly) that it's merely the former, he might well now decide that he's free to get back to the cheap shiat. If, though, he knows that even one more Anisimov / Savard / Tyutin type hit would mean he'd sit for a long, long, long time and he might keep it under control.

And I say all that loathing the kind of player he used to be.

And how come nobody ever mentions that Cooke was the guy who took Bertuzzi's place in the Vancouver lineup after Bertuzzi nearly killed Moore?

/And a big "fark You" to Crawford and Burke, too, while we're at it
