Oiler, Flames and Wild fans are rejoicing right now.
Vancouver media had just reported that neither Cooke or Byron Ritchie
were skating with the team this morning.
Whats the 411 on Pettinger? His numbers are down big time this season after breaking out with 20 in 2006. Is that because he no longer plays with Ovechkin?
he played a lot last year, but since BB came in he's been a healthy scartch for a good amount of games, see's some time on the PP but really there was just no room left for him after BB brought up his boys from Hershey, Petty's got some upside, i just think he's more of a 1 way player, offense. Getting a guy like Cooke (or any guy) for someone who has been a healthy scratch the majority of the year is fine by me, what year is Cooke in his contract?
