What about Erik Cole ?
I was scanning the free agent list and trying to target some LW players that might fit into our system and DL's philosphy, and i zeroed in on Erik Cole.
He's a big bodied power forward with great speed, he plays hard, he has been to two cup finals and is having another strong playoffs this year playing on Staal's wing. Plus he already has chemistry with Justin Williams. I realize het had a bit of a down year this year in Edmonton, but when he was traded back to carolina he was just shy of being a PPG player. I can see him on a line with Stoll and Brownie, driving the net like mad men. Plus, most importantly, he seems to be a DL guy, a winner with drive and passion.
On another note....after watching the Blackhawks on this playoff run i keep imagining the Kings being in a similar position next year. I also feel that Brian Boyle could become our Dustin Byfuglien, the big body that becomes a menace in the crease and can bang in some greasy rebounds. Plus like Boyle, Byfuglien seems to be a bit of gentle giant, but he has still been very effective for chicago. He sure rattled Loungo and go the canucks off there game.
What are your guys thoughts on these two scenarios ?
