We shall see I guess but I'm thinking Cole is better suited for the NHL than Redden at this point.
It's not hate, it's more concern over his development. I know that defensemen take longer to develop, but not this long in the current NHL. He's 6 years away from being drafted in the first round. He turns 24 next month. Most players enter their prime at 25. After this year, he only has 3 more until UFA. He needs to be ready by now, and I don't think the Blues think he is. I hope I'm wrong.
