I have no inside info on it, but I think you can interpret that Cole situation more than one way....and kind of extreme to tarnish him 5 1/2 years later on a decision he made as a teenager. You could just as easily say, "With how long he's taken to break into the NHL he was right to continue his development in college for an extra year before joining a men's pro league."
Tarasenko has delivered and was developing in the second best league in the world. Cole was playing NCAA. A little bit different. I can't say for sure, but i believe i remember hearing that the Blues were not to happy that Cole stayed at ND. (that could not be accurate though).
