Default Re: Matt Cooke traded to Minnesota

Cooke was not traded. He left the Penguins as a free agent. His contract was up at the end of the 2012-2013 season.

Not surprised to see him walk. I think he was after some more $. I don't blame him. He played well enough in Pittsburgh to merit additional compensation. Personally, I am EXTREMELY happy he went to the Western Conference and NOT to an Atlantic Division or Eastern Conference Opponent, both of which the Penguins meet more frequently during the season. I can live with playing him and the Wild once or twice (at the maximum) every year.
