I don't remember the last guy in Montreal with so much heart and playing through pain like he did. Plus, he really enjoy being here and he's a model for our young players. I don't think MaxPac would have done what he did without Cole besides him.

I don't mind if we trade Gionta or Plekanec, but trading Cole would be really stupid.
So after a down year, Gionta and Plekanec become afterthoughts while Cole is what makes you a fan?

Cole was a great leader last year, but talk about the what have you done for me lately effect.

Bourque's contract really isn't horrible when you consider his track record until last year. It's too long but numbers wise it's a secondary contract for a secondary scorer.

Besides Gomez, the no contract right now is completely awful. Kaberle has a bad one but for a defender who puts up that many points it's not insane, it's no worse than the Cammalleri contract we were able to get partial relief from. Gionta is slighly overpaid, as is Cole, especially when you factor in length, but we are talking major assets that many teams would overpay.

Markov's contract could be bad but considering the length it was a calculated risk and if Markov is 3/4ths the player he was before the injuries it was worth it.
