Note though Cole is a UFA at year end, though I get the feeling he will want to sign in the States and Pittsburgh could be a good fit for him. Sid with Cole I think would be an awesome combo though and Cole is more skilled and every bit as tough.
I'm not usually one for shooting down proposals based on personal rivalries between players (most guys are consummate professionals and can overcome past frictions), but Cole and Orpik are kind of a special case, what with Brooksy having broken his neck and all. Cole comes across as still being pretty bitter about it, and Free Candy's locked up for a good long time.

Plus I think Staal's too much to give up for any UFA anyway.
