Well, he left Montreal because he was so deep in the doghouse that he was never getting out of it, and he had a chance to go play with Julien again, with whom he gets along quite well. He puts up good numbers for a second-line player so long as you know what to expect from him; he's not a power forward so don't expect him to be out there clearing space for others, for example. I always liked having him here so I'm not busted up about this deal, especially since it greatly helps next year's cap situation.
Cole played great hockey for us last year and is to be thanked for that and wished well. His head hasn't been in the game this year, but he's certainly capable of bouncing back next year for the Stars.
This feels like a win for us. Not a big win, but a win.
