Right, and up until 7/1/15 he's going to be holding that NTC like an ace. The market for 36-year-old wingers who are realistically good for about 20 goals isn't huge to begin with. Add the NTC with Cole's generally self-interested attitude and you're unlikely to make a successful trade involving him.

Personally I see no reason that the Hurricanes would jump at the opportunity to get re-involved with him, either now or two years from now.
