Agreed it is sad he does not fight ever and seems to just take costly penalties when it is not need, but I guess it's the chance the Pens took with him and they seem to want to stick with it.
Agreed. I'm with you - I like Cookie and am happy he is wearing a Pens uniform. The guy plays hard every shift and hits everything that moves, has some decent offensive talent, plus plays the agitator very well (though not quite as good as Ruutu). I hope the Pens keep him around for a long time.
That being said, however, biting an opponent just isn't cool.
