If Habs fans think that Cole is going to be an immense improvement over Andrei on that line, I think they'll be disappointed. Cole is a nice complementary player and so is Andrei.

But I hope I'm wrong and Cole lights it up.
I don't necessarily think they're expecting more production. More-so they're expecting the line to click better overall. The last two seasons Cammy being injured really made that line suffer. Now if he's injured we have relatively good people in the top 6 still. Andrei gets bumped up and voila Cammy-Plek-AK go back for example if Cole goes down. There are more options in general this year and I think that was the goal of the org. Plus I think Cole is a better fit on that line, you are right though production and injuries are a question mark. Hopefully the chemistry is there.
