Again: what is this 50% based on?

No, not at all. Because you said Cole was effective 6-10 years ago, which would be when he was on the BBC line--not with Staal. So were you exaggerating then?

Cole scored 26 goals and 52 points last season, and was among leaders in hits, and was highly effective on ES. How does that not constitute as a good, effective player?

Not really. Some teams are still noticeably better than others. I don't think there's anything beyond ridiculous about projections. Nothing's written in stone.

I suspect Pacioretty, Eller and Desharnais will contribute more than they have. And the addition of Cole will be significant. More importantly: who do you expect to decrease their production?
