He needs a fair shot at playing and so far he hasn't received it. It's one of the only things Hitch has done that I disagree with.
Who would you play him over right now? He's not as good as Redden at this point.

I think you're jumping the gun on assuming how Hitchcock will manage the 7 defenders this season. Cole will play enough to have a chance to continue developing. But its up to Cole to force Hitchcock to play him through being one of the top 6 guys. He hasn't done it yet, and I would argue that he HAS had chances to do so.
