I do remember it though; it was in the interview where he was discussing placing Russell on the top pairing next to Pie. He said that he didn't think "the other options"(Cole, Woywitka, Chorney) were capable of going up against top players night in and night out which is why Russell was getting the first chance on that pairing.

Believe whatever you want to believe about Hitch's opinion of Cole, but his actions have not pointed to any particular like for the kid. He's sent him back to the minors multiple times, doesn't give him minutes when he is up and has gone out of his way several times to find a more proven option(Cola, Huskins, White, Redden). If Hitch really liked the kid; he'd just give him his shot and run with it. That isn't happening.
