But that's not even true.

Cole was flying from the start last year. He was playing well but he just wasn't producing for various reasons (bad luck, bad chemistry with linemates, tougher match ups, no powerplay time).

This year Cole is getting all the right opportunities but he just is not the same player he was last year.

In his career he's had a lot of variation in his performances from one season to the next too. And right now it's obvious he wasn't ready for this shortened season, whether it's physically or mentally. Perhaps both.

Let's hope he can get back on track before the last game. But at this point, I am not expecting much from him. I agree with whoever suggested giving him easier match ups and having Eller replace him for the time being.
