That's a concern, sure. It's also the price you pay if you're the Habs and you're unable to develop any of these true power forwards yourself - you don't get them when they don't have any warts. It all depends on the contract Clowe would be asking for, to be sure.

The fact that we would potentially have Cole and Clowe as two aging wingers on UFA-inflated contracts could hinder us in the future...but I'm always the type to go for it now and figure out how to deal with it later if it becomes a problem.
