Cole is 29, in his prime, and a proven goal scorer...

If he can stay healthy, I see no reason to dislike him. We need the toughness, badly, and Joni's going to be a headache for whoever tries to re-sign him long-term.

Maybe this moves Penner down to the second-line to feast on easier minutes and PP time.

I'm satisfied with this. Cole will be very exciting to watch this year.
