So apparantly Matt Cooke decided to put his head-hunting career on hold and try his hand at goal scoring.  And even though 1 of the Goals was on the Power Play, I can’t see him staying on the 2nd PP unit all year.  He’s a typical 3rd/4th line guy who is valuable on the Penalty Kill, not the man advantage.  If for some reason you picked him up for today’s light schedule, feel free to drop him.  You don’t have a reliable #3 LW newbies… As far as the rest of the night, pretty uneventful.  The other 4 teams combined for just 5 Goals so if you own Bryzgalov or James Reimer you should be feelin’ pretty good right now… Jaromir Jagr – RW (Phi):  I’m already not liking this guy (all over again).  His first NHL game in over 3 years and he hits a milestone?  What a glory hog.  Your team won the game Jagr!  It’s not about individual accomplishments!  Seriously though congrats on 1,600 Points Jagr.  I put the over/under on some random Lower Body Injury at 1,620 points though.
