I think the guy would be great if he could be on a line equivalent to Eller-AK-Moen...

The only center who plays similarly to Staal (and this is not to say he's near Staal in terms of talent etc.) is Eller. Even though that line was good last year, and great last night, that's a good spot to try Cole. Eller and AK have good chemistry, and Eller likes to play a North South game, and to cycle down low in the offensive zone, which would be a great fit for Cole. Also, move Moen to play with MaxPac/Desharnais to help protect DD in the defensive zone.
