Anything more would be a bonus.
That would be a nice contribution to the top 6 in general, but the other two areas where he will also benefit the team indirectly are:
- opening up space for Cammalleri/Plekanec, who should see their point totals go up playing with Cole
- allowing Kostitsyn to slide next to Eller on the 3rd line, which should improve our secondary scoring
Nothing against your post but its funny that a 20g/20-25A/40-45 pts is what people expecting from Cole.
While AK had 20 goals/25 assists/45 pts, 140 hits, +3 last season.
And some people just can't admit it was a good season after all for AK. Actually, some people even think that AK was somehow bad last season. Without his injuries two years ago, AK would have got his 4 straight 20 goals season. The guy just can get any love.
Sorry for highjacking this thread. Please continue.
Oh and my expectation for Cole? 25G/25A ~50PTS
Wouldn't be surprised if he gets even more if he plays all season with Cammy and Plek.
