DAMN HIM ... how did he not sign Ruutu to three years (YES, I'm still anguished over this!)!! Although I am happy that we're getting Cookey back ... I will forever miss Ruuts!!
Term was agreed upon Monday night and the contract has been sent to NHL central registry to be made official.I'm assuming that it won't be official (announced by the Pens) until the contract is actually signed.
Cooke, who earned $1.2 million each of the last two seasons, will count $1.8 million against the salary cap each of the years on his new contract.
