I don't know one person who think he's going to put up 30 goals, and people who contend that's why he was brought in have such a poor understanding of this team that their opinion is close to worthless.
Okay but to me the question is in what way has his on ice play changed in order to refer to him as past prime? This is an assumption. Prime isn't some magic number like 34 where it just ends. It's different from player to player.

His 2010-11 season was very similar to past productions. He's always going to get those 20+ goals it's a known fact, whether he stays healthy enough to get 25+ is what matters with Cole.

He was healthy all season last year. Can't see why all of the sudden he'd be troubled by a nagging injury.
