Looks like my first instincts were right about the Cole/Redden dynamic.

The bottom line is that veteran coaches like veteran players at important positions who have been through the grind of many playoffs. Just like LaRussa, who a previous poster mentioned.

And blueman makes a good point that they shortened season coupled with the Blues being a contender simply heightens the intensity of this season.

But I still think everyone in the hierarchy of hockey ops has to be disappointed that Cole still cannot grab a regular role and be just a solid contributor, much less a top 4 force.
