If you guys want to feel good about this trade just head on over to the dallas board. They make it sound as if we robbed the baby from the cradle! It's funny they even thought the pick was going their way lol.
If the goal is to let Ryder go at the end of the season to free up cap space then why not hang on to Cole in hopes that he turns it around. Cole could have fetched atleast a 3rd round pick at any time, maybe even a 2nd come trade deadline? Habs NEED physicality in the playoffs! Habs need to go for the cup. People are always saying how the habs are missing a few pieces and are a few years from contending but guys like Markov and Plekanec aren't getting any younger so by that time we'll be missing a few pieces again!
On the other hand it seems like Cole's head didn't seem to be in the game and seeing him completely give up on that play as he watched the other team score makes this trade a little bit easier to swallow.
