from Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
It's not official yet and can't be for another day, at least.
But the evidence is accumulating that Matt Cooke won't be with the Penguins in 2013-14.
Cooke, a blue-collar winger, is on the cusp of unrestricted free agency, and will be eligible to sign with any team Friday.
General manager Ray Shero acknowledged Wednesday evening that precedent strongly suggests that, now that Cooke is about to be free to move on, he almost certainly will do so.
"Most guys, if they get [to unrestricted free agency], there's more money, or they want a change," Shero said.
