So credit goes to Gauthier. Though, in all honesty, Habs fans NEVER agree on any moves.....except this one. So to me, 99% of the board would have made this move. We might not LOVE the length and the money, but the player himself? To me, it was the easiest decision of the summer. At least for us who sees size and scoring as a must on this team.

But credit to Gauthier for thinking "outside the box"...that big guys are needed in this team too....
Judging from comments from the national media, the out of the box thinking was that the cap increases had changed what overpaid means and that Erik Cole was a good player in of himself and not merely the product of Eric Staal.
