I assume you mean SKostitsyn -> Pouliot -> Cole?

The way I see things, another top line forward is a job the Habs been looking to fill for a while, unsuccessfully. Cole should be that guy.

Sergei and Pouliot (when used) were complimentary middle 6'ers. That's a role I think Wolski can play effectively. He is somewhat overpaid for the role, but the Habs also have this extra cap room, they seem to have limited options to spend it, and he is only signed for a year, so there's some flexibility. If you take money out of the conversation, he is a shoe-in to add more offense than Darche or Trotter.
