Can't agree with you here DA, which is rare. Moving Cole now is classless, disrupts his family, and shows no faith. It would definitely hurt the Habs in the future FA hunt.

Habs made a 4 year commitment. At least 3 are required unless Cole asks to move, or is injured.

We all know FA signings are dangerous. All I ask is that Habs make the right ones at the right time. Once you sign a guy, you should stick to the commitment, so be very careful.

In any case, Cole will bounce back, and I expect him to be effective next year also. 20-25 goal effective, with leadership. That is what we pay him for, and he knows that.

I agree with moving Vets for picks at this stage, you know that, but not in Cole's case, unless he wants out.
