But I'd rather have Cole than Ryder come playoff time. We just spent a decade trying to upgrade on size in the top 6, now we are back to square one.
Cole ( 6"2 )in Playoffs :
43 Games - 14 points = Avg PPG 0.3
Ryder ( 6"1 ) in Playoffs :
70 Games - 43 points = Avg PPG 0.6
I hardly think 1 inch is a huge size difference, it's not like we traded Chara for Desharnais. We also acquired Prust, Armstrong and Bouillon to address the toughness issue so, we're a far cry from being the "smurfs" of yesteryears.
As for playoff time, I believe 0.6 is greater than 0.3 but that might just be my horrible math skills.
