Martin happens to like having Cole but his first consideration is the team.
And the players will respect that. Hockey is a team game, it's in the blood of the sport.

I've said it before, they asked Cole to play a role on the third line, and he did it. I have no worries re Cole, or JM's handling of him. Cole is long term, and he will help where he is asked.

JM asked him to do this , and he did it. I can design an office building, but if my boss asks me to do some **** work for a bit, I do it. It's called being a pro.

I am really happy to see Cole on the team, because he will do the **** work some times, knowing he is helping the team. He's a pro, with no ego concerns. We need him. Still really happy about his signing.

So everyone chillax.
