He's a perfect fit. I think with any luck he'll provide more for us than people expect. 4.5 is also imo fair.

It is..but that's how free agency works. Gotta pay up to sign a player these days.

That's a lot of bidoux but I guess that's what happens with such a weak FA class

That's a lot of money but when you have guys like Kopecky and Ward getting 3mil this is a pretty good deal. Injury prone and getting up there in age but adds size and grit to our top 6.

Cammalleri-Plekanec-Kostitsyn
Cole-Gomez-Gionta
Pacioretty-Eller-?

Well if you consider Ward got 3M$ for scoring 10 goals last season, its not that bad.. its the new reality.

Love it! Led all UFA in hits, 22 even strength goals, competes hard, has won it all!

This mitigates the Budaj blunder. Nice job Pierre. Now go after Gagne on the cheap.

Beautiful top 9. Got the guy I was hoping we wanted! Big body, will crash the net. Love it!

Really like it. A bit of an overpayment? Yeah, but welcome to Free Agent Frenzy. I don't think we'll like the deal so much when Cole is 36 at the end of the contract, but it sure looks good now.

Would love for us to add Gagne, give us even more flexibility in our top nine.

So with the addition of Cole in our top 6, we are surely allowed to chant USA-USA-USA in our building...

A little long term at his age, but definitely a good signing. He's been one of the players Pac's been compared to. He'll show him the ropes first hand.

It's really not enough IMO. Not saying in a bash management way, but we're missing a few pieces but cole certainly improves our team. We need a tougher bottom 6.

Oh yeah, only 1 mil more than Spacek who's off the books next year. Makes perfect sense as well all know the Jets revenue will help the cap to go up again next year,

Welcome to Habs land!

Always like Erik Cole with the speed but this is a different team for him and his injuries are scary. Like the player though.

Love the signing!

We needed 5 on 5 scoring so Cole should be awesome, he scored 22 Even Strength Goals last season (21nd in the whole NHL) and had 42 ES-Points (42nd in the whole NHL).

He also had 225 Hits last season, best Montreal player was Kostitsyn with 140 Hits.

Maybe one year to much, but that's how the UFA works.
