Good read on Cookie, Zu.

You really don't hear much about Cooke's value to the team and that IS a disservice to him as a player. He skates extremely well and has good puck handling abilities, along with giving 150% every time he steps on the ice and hits everything that moves. In addition, as the article states, Cooke has been stellar on the PK and his defensive skills go pretty much ignored. Would I call him a bit of an agitator? YEP. He is another player I wasn't too fond of before he donned the black 'n gold, ala Battleship Kelly, Durbano, Ulf, Kaspar, Laraque, Ruutu, etc., but I quickly warmed up to all of 'em, including Cookie and his contributions to the team. He's definitely a keeper and I hope the Pens hold onto him.
