Morning Line

“After it happened, I asked Ray and ownership if I could leave for a little while. They were OK with it. Everyone has times in their lives when you need help or you need to talk to somebody. I`ve had the chance to work with some people. I spent a week specifically dealing with those things.”

-Matt Cooke of the Pittsburgh Penguins on dealing with his style of play.  More from Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Once a bum, always a bum. You aren’t going to change anyone’s minds, Cooke.

The thing is Cooke, like Bertuzzi, brings other highly desired skills to the table. I am a big believer in redemption, so I am pulling for Cooke and I hope he truly changes his ways. Actions speak louder than words and there is no doubt Cooke will be on a short leash in the NHL’s eyes.
