I love Erik Cole as a player, but there are several red flags that would preclude me from offering him a multiyear deal.

- He turns 31 in November. Guys with his style of play don't usually have the greatest longevity.

- Production without Staal as his center. Couldn't seem to find his stride in Edmonton (heard blips about them using him primarily at LW). Had a big point streak upon returning to Carolina. However, during the NJ series, he got demoted to Matt Cullen's line. In total, he's got 0 goals and 2 assists in 13 playoff games.
