Michael Russo, beat writer for the Wild, wrote this story about Matt Cooke today. [ Star Tribune ] He tweeted out this interesting tidbit as well:   Funny anecdote that didn't make story:When Ray Shero reached TOR for Cooke/McDonagh hearing customs agent lit into Shero for employing Cooke — Michael Russo (@Russostrib) September 17, 2013 After Shero was lectured, Shero tracked down Cooke at baggage claim and kiddingly told him he was almost detained for that head shot :) — Michael Russo (@Russostrib) September 17, 2013 What a dick move by the custom agent. Worry about baggage or something, dick. Other recaps from last night Some other recaps from last nights ******** fest. [ ESPN 970 ] [ The Pensnation ] Pens make some cuts The Pens roster is down to 44. [ PG ] Forwards Paul Thompson, Tom Kostopoulos, Brian Gibbons, Dominik Uher and defensemen Clark Seymour, Reid McNeill and Nick D'Agostino were assigned to the Penguins' American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre. The Pens did sign prospect Jean Sebastien Dea. Good write up on Dea from Highland Park Hockey. After a development camp with the Montreal Canadiens earlier this summer, Dea came to the Pittsburgh Penguins annual camp two weeks later showing that he hadn't slowed down his offseason weight building routine that helped lead to his success a year prior. Not being drafted only motivated Dea even more to prove people wrong about his size. "I gained almost 20 pounds during [this past] summer," Dea said. "I got bigger and stronger and I just want to prove to all the teams that they made a mistake at the draft."   RIP Terry the smoker [ newser ]
