I am relatively sure he will be the #4 guy. His career track makes sense to be this as does his skillset.
Obviously at this point we are simply arguing over whether he is bottom pairing or middle pairing. He should not be filling in at the #2 spot unless an injury occurs and he will not be a #6 unless Edmundson takes a massive leap forward in development.
Honestly, having watched a few Peoria games, I think Cole will improve now that he is no longer on the Rivermen. I cannot help but suspect that they are actually doing more harm than good to the Blues' developing players...might be a reason to let the prospects mature in Europe instead of enticing them to play for the AHL.
