Of course, we HAVE to prefer Cole...Ryder hasn't done much today. And Cole will probably score 1 maybe 2 in his first game. But like the Bourque vs Cammy trade...why don't we wait? I remember we loved the trade not that long ago, comparing Bourque great start of season compared to Cammy's slow start....If we look once again....Cammy did transformed his slow start to a pretty good one.
The thing is, the Habs aren't, as far as I'm concerned, a real Cup contending team. We can win those games in the regular season, but a tough matchup in 7 games? I don't see it. And if I don't see it, it's not the sole addition of Cole that makes me think otherwise. Based on that, I take the saving money and the 3rd to continue building a stronger team. And I would ahve also take the chance that while Cole might succeed THIS YEAR....he won't next year AND the year after.
Yea well if we're not really contenders and we trade a player for a pick and cap space, it's a pretty arrogant move for a GM. Cause our success stood on something not very solid and you trade a core player just cause he was shaky this season. It's like the GM said: "we're so great now that we can afford trading Cole" when in fact I thought Cole was much more important than than that in my opinion. He wasn't just a depth player while for Bergevin it's a depth trade really:" we need a right shot guy for the PP". I mean that's a joke, right. Maybe 5, 10 games from now Cole would have returned on the first line. Habs are not big and physical and get even less big and physical.
