After two or three shifts, the Wild fans will be cheering for Matt Cooke, like any fans who hate a player until they are on your own team.
He played his backside off in the playoffs this year when others didn't or couldn't. He earned his paycheck and subsequent $$$ in free agency and I think he makes the Wild better. For the money, he was a very good signing yesterday.
