Here's a look at Cole's first as a Hab. Hopefully it'll be a sign of things to come. At this rate though, it'll be a long 4 years if he doesn't pick up the pace. I can see him being boo'ed along with Gomez at the Bell Centre if he doesn't start producing.
Either way, he had a great game last night IMO. He looked fast, explosive, and hard to take off of his tracks. He had drive for sure, and was creating opportunities. He could have popped a few last night.
MUCH better performance than a recent game I remember vividly, in Toronto.
He needs to get more playing time. this 10-12 minutes, and no PP time is ridiculous, and is the downfall of the Martins regime in Montreal. Bottom line, Cole has shown he CAN play well, and the whole PP debacle, is short sightedness on Martins end...
He's playing the wrong system for this team. He did the same thing in Ottawa... I truly believe this guy was born to coach the Devils and their defensive system.
