Even in Cole's "bad" year he scored 16 goals in 63 games in Edmonton.

I have no problem signing him to a 2-3 year contract in the 4-4.25 mil range, I'm just concerned taht a dry UFA market will lead to a guy like that ending up in the 4.75-5 mil range. If he ends up out of our range, better to move on to Langenbrunner, Upshall, Frolov maybe. We don't need a savior, just a guy with decent size that can do the dirty work for Cammy and Plekanec and still score 15-20 on his own. AK is more suited as the finisher on a line.
