Game 6 of the 2006 Final may have been the worst game ever played by a Whaler/Canes team. They completely didn't show up. Never in it. Cole got hit early (Ethan Moreau?) and we all held our breath to see how he'd react. He got up, but it was hard to tell anything from that game, since the entire team completely sucked from the first drop of the puck.

Regardless, still a bad example. Cole was ready to play a while earlier, but there was no spot for him and thus, no point risking further injury. The only reason he played at all is because of Doug Weight's shoulder injury. If Weight hadn't been hurt, Cole would have watched the entire postseason. But again, he was ready to go a few weeks previous.
