Why do people insist on including the comment that so and so won a cup, especially when it was years ago. It is almost totally irrelevant to what the player is going to contribute going forward.
As for Cole, his inconsistency frustrated his previous teams. It's what frustrates many when it comes to Kostitsyn. I can see a parallel.
Kosty a floater? Well he has been tagged with that label by some but it is less than obvious to me. He has lapses (see inconsistency) but other than Pleks who seems to go hard all of the time, who doesn't have lapses.
Having said all of that, I think Kosty could get more than $4m but less than $5m but that is just a guess.
