AK won't get Cole money, not even close... You think that salary is only define by the number of points you score ?
You do know that the year the Canes and Cole won the Cup, Cole was a non-factor as he played in a grand total of 2 games in the playoffs that year, games 6 and 7 of the Finals.
Cole got his salary this year cause of some good years on a return back to Carolina, he did bad in Edmonton and it looked to be the end for him. AK maybe on the 3rd line, but that 3rd line is getting almost the same minutes as the 1-2 lines cause of their play. AK can score, he can hit and he seems to have quite the chemistry with Eller. Going forward I would like to have him with Eller as it is the first time in years that we actually have more than not just 1 line, or 2 lines that can score...we have 3.
AK can be signed, and it won't cost Cole money unless he has a crazy year and hits the July 1st market and see's what the asking price is for him out there.
