yes, this year, he helped make the team better. last year, this wasn't a team ready to play, they just sucked and had 1 line and 30 injuries.

they looked more dominate with him here before the trade, and it allowed pleks to be the 2nd line. it was a huge difference.

that said, it is what it is. I've just been following dallas the last 10 games or so, and he makes a huge difference out there. he does things nobody on our team does.
For the last 10 games, yes. Go back a few weeks and Dallas fans were questioning if he wants to retire, like we were before that.

Right now we miss a player like Cole, and if we can get another guy who crashes the net and also has a bit of skill like Cole does, perfect. But it's easy to say we miss a top 6 forward when our entire top 6 is slumping at once. If Pacioretty and Desharnais need Cole to produce, it's time those two are split up.
