Cole out would allow Therrien to keep using Prust on the top 3 lines (spreading the toughness) but, depending on the return, it would also hurt us from a depth *1 perspective. If they ship him out, I hope for a “hockey trade” as in “something more than a salary dump and/or only a pick in return”.
*1 One of the main reasons behind our success is the internal and healthy competition Therrien was able to create. Without depth, it would disappear or, at best, it would become harder to maintain.
Okay. Let's wait a minute. Seriously, what could we get for Cole+ that would make us a better team? What do we miss? Maybe a replacement for Gionta on the Pleky line?
