When will we trade for Erik Cole?
 
As you all know, Erik Cole left us with the remark "It will be nice to make the playoffs consistently now".

In a delicious twist of irony, the Canadiens collapsed and became a lotto team. Icing the oldest team in the NHL with an average age of 52.4, it looks like Erik Cole will be sipping gin and juice in his new job as Director of Speed Skating at the PNC Arena before the Canadiens compete again.

With even more irony, it looks like the Hurricanes are poised to compete for a playoff spot, with the Southeast division looking incredibly weak this year. How weak, you ask? Well, if Columbus and Winnipeg switch, Columbus will have a good chance of winning the division.

It's coming. It's just a matter of when.

... we've officially gone insane.


and the answer is next offseason after Cole has come back down to earth offensively on a bottom 5 Montreal team, with the Habs needing to shed salary to get cap compliant. Erik will be the one requesting the trade. We will overpay, likely on the order of giving up Mark Alt and a 2nd because **** logic.

Once BFF Jose Cuervo is resigned for 4yrs @ 3mil per.

At the deadline in 2015 when Cole has 7 points in 38 games

LaRose-Staal-Cole

Gotta Catch Em Staal 01-04-2013 02:51 PM

Once Alex Semin has scored 20 goals in 20 games, giving him enough value to send to Montreal along with a 1st round pick in exchange for Cole.

When Eric Staal's jealousy causes JStaal and Skinner to become injured.

Which will be 2 weeks into the season once Montreal realizes that last year was no fluke.

I'm actually surprised that we haven't already. With Ruutu out and the start of the season just around the corner we could use another physical top line winger to fill that massive hole in offensive production.. :shakehead

LaRose-Staal-Cole

Most dreamy line up ever

But I'm not sure Jared will be ready to center the first line. Hope we can get a center back when we trade Eric and Jordan for Morgan Reilly (next Bobby Orr)

I just assumed it was Eric and Jordan for Cole...

34 points is hardly a massive hole. That's Chad LaRose production.

At the first sign of trouble.

There's a VERY solid reason why he still lives in Raleigh, and owns a home here.

I had already counted on LaRose to score 40+40 in the shortened season. I don't think he'll be able to top that so we'll definitely need another forward.

Only as a "Plan B" after Boychuk, Dalpe, Welsh, Rask, Nash, Wallace, Dadonov, Samson, Osala, Terry, Di Giuseppe, Hoffman, Karlsson, Jenks, Shugg, Jared and either Sutter fail to make any impact whatsoever at the NHL level.

So in March or so?

At least 11 or 12 of those names will never wear a Canes sweater.

Cole has a chance by next November.

5 of those 12 already have worn a Canes sweater.

Boychuk, Dalpe, Nash, Brent Sutter, Samson, Osala and Welsh already have.

18 names on the list.....5 down so far. None have stuck. I'm not worried! :yo:


And giving Boychuck $20 to try on his sweater, doesn't count!

There's no Cole on that list. I'm no Cole apologist, I have NO problems with letting him walk for the money. But I know full well that he'll come back and play here again. He does too, as does Rutherford.

Nash and Welsh are the only two sure fire NHLers imo. I don't know much about Di Giuseppe but Rask is next on this list if he continues to improve his skating. The rest of these prospects makes Charlotte a threat for a very long time.

Not enough for our top 6, so we'll trade for Cole during one of these offseasons or trade deadlines.

Just curious, what do you see in Nash and Welsh that make you think they are "sure fire" NHLrs over some of the other guys. Welsh will be 25 shortly and Nash will be 24 so they aren't exactly "young" prospects. I would love for them to be able to be capable NHLrs (even if it's 3rd or 4th line), but right now, they aren't even the best players on their AHL team by a long shot. In fairness to Welsh, he's in his 1st professional year and has improved as the season has progressed, but was curious what you saw in them that makes you think they stand out from the crowd.

Theyre not necessarily offensive threats, but I like their overall game better than players like Boychuk and Dalpe. Nash is excellent around the boards and brings sound defensive effort night in and night out. May I add that hes pretty good at faceoffs and played so solid when called up last year. Welsh is a big powerfoward who is mobile on his skates. He's always crashing the net when you need him and fights for rebound chances. Like Tangradi, it takes a few years for these PWFs to develop, but he, along with Nash will be good for our bottom 6 for years to come. I prefer Nash, but Welsh would make a good candidate for filling the whole at 3rd line center.
