I don't think Cole is cold. I think the man is settling into a new system, one that is very strict and defensively oriented. I don't know why people just expect new comers to just come in, do a few practices and play a few preseason games (versus weaker opponents and different linemates every game), and be great right off the bat.
I won't place any judgment on Cole until at least 1/4 of the season is passed. It can take time to get settled in. Sometimes people just click right away, sometimes it takes time, sometimes it doesn't work. Playing for such a structured system can't be an easy thing either. The jury is not out on Cole yet.
One thing for sure, he's been improving slowly every game imo. I think he will help us a lot once he becomes more accustomed to the style.
As for AK, as many believed before the season, having him on a 3rd line with very capable offensive players facing weaker opponents would be a huge help. These past couple games prove just that.
Now, if only Eller could be moved to center instead of DD...
