Beside of his production, he's exactly what I thought he would be.
Dangerous on the rush.
Go to the net relentlessly, thanks to his good size
Average success in all his attempts
Overestimated physicality (always late hits)
Not a factor on PP
That said, it doesn't help that he's playing with a 12th-13th foward (Darche) and a second year (still in his first year, number of game wise) little smurf (Desharnais) that has some problem to blossom right now.
The guy used to play with Eric Staal!!! That's a major drop! It is just an opinion, but I think that Cole, to be at his best, needs to play on a line with size, he needs the other players to be big and to-the-net also. It means he will have to adapt his game because habs can't give him that.
I think he could be better used if he play with Eller when he'll come back. I would love to see a line Desharnais-Eller-Cole.
