Next best thing is that solid, shutdown player to partner Pietrangelo. If Cole can cut out the stupid penalties he took last season, then I don't think he needs to play out of this world to fill that role. Not ideal for the team, or Cole, but our strong team defense plus playing alongside one of the best in the game will offer him plenty of protection.

For me, seeing Cole play regularly is just as an exciting prospect this season as seeing Tarasenko in the 'Note.



I think Cole is going to surprise a lot people this year. I hope he gets the chance to play with Petro from day 1.
