Cole in the Flyers stocking?

Makes more sense for the Flyers to pursue....

Quote:
Erik Cole’s agent confirmed that he’d like to test free agency.

“Erik wants to see what the options are on July 1st,” Bartlett said via email. “That is in no way a slam on the Hurricanes or his appreciation of the role they have played in his career. He has never really explored free agency in his career and feels that he is at the age when it makes sense to see all offers before deciding on what he wants to do.”

Would love a healthy Cole at the right price and NO long term deal given his recent health issues

This.

Offer him the same contract leino turned down and see If he's in. I probably wouldn't go any higher than 3.5

This is Homer we're talking about, the problem I have with Cole is that Homer would sign him for 5 years.

Cole is 32...if i'm Cole and I have issues with health, i'm signing somewhere for 5+ years. Some team will be stupid enough to do it.

I'd liked to get him if the contract is cheap. Maybe he'll take a paycut to be reunited with Lavy.

If the price is right. His best years are behind him. I would rather keep Versteeg and give him a full year before we write him off.

I'd be cool with Cole if he is cheap. At $3 mil plus I'd pass. Not sure what he's asking for or will be offered but if he said a dime more than $3 mil I'd tell him to go pound sand. I'm on phone right now so can't look it up, but if they signed Cole for $3 mil does that effectively rule out Leino?

You'd think the Flyers would be after Cole to reunite him with Lavy. If he's signed, Leino is definitely gone.

I think Leino is gone 100% anyway. The Flyers just need to trade his right away before they get nothing for him... heard several teams are lined up to sign him.

We could do much worse than Cole and one would have to imagine that he'd be highly endorsed by Lavy. As others have stated, less than 3.0 would be ideal.

I'd take Cole if we didn't overpay. 2-3 years @ 2.5-3 mil per. Otherwise let him get overpaid by a struggling team.

It was a bit more serious than a concussion. Cole suffered a compound fracture of his C5 vertebra and came within a hair of being paralyzed.

I expect most teams to bid at Brooks Laich type figures. Probably a bit higher.

With the lack of forward talent available, and the increase in the cap, Cole might be able to get much more than $3m. I doubt he's coming here for at or under $3m, but if he is it probably won't happen until he's sat around for a few days without any good offers.
