Gallagher has the desire but no size. Cole had the size but no desire. Its a wash unless Cole suddenly decides he wants to use his size and speed, this year not so much.

Power forward used to mean something other than " not afraid to go into the corners". I'm not sure which is less true, that Cole was a power forward or that the habs are going to miss his nonexistant grit.
