Cole makes 4.5 million. He scored 30+ goals, 60+ points, last season as a power forward. How in heck is that "overpaid"? How many other guys making those point totals make less than Cole? Come on, know a little bit about the cap hit, contract, and point production of the player, in conjunction with his comparable peers, before making such a statement. Cole is a cap gem at last year's productivity.
The deal seems fair because of Clowe's potential and skill set being offset by Cole's. I do not want to trade Cole, but this is the type of deal I would think about.
