He was pretty happy in Carolina, and he was productive there.

Guy has had 21 shots and only one goal. You can bet that Erik Cole isn't a 4.8% shooter.

He's been snake bit but keep on generating chances and the goals will come.

Edit: 12.5% is his usual rate if anyone was wondering.

It feels good to see some Montreal representation in the top 30 hitters on NHL.com again. And this time, our best hitter isn't a turnover machine/pylon/faux tough guy.

Have JM talk about all the statistics he has researched about Cole as well as blame him for penalties and whatnot every game?

Haha true. He was also happy when he signed with us. Yet we only saw glimpses of the "Carolina Cole".

I still don't see why people were going off on him being a bad signing. He's had maybe one bad game this season so far, the rest he's been one of our better forwards, it just took him a few games to show up on the scoresheet.

Someone already said it: stats = not the whole story. Cole's always been ****ing awesome for us!

He played well for the first time. I wouldn't call him great though. But he played like he's espected to play, be a big body in front of the net.

Discuss, rave, and rant about Cole's swag here.

Oh and his beard: epic.

This beard rivals Mara's one. Epic, a beauty!

He's been one of our best players, if not the best, the last 3 games. He looks so much better than Gionta and even Cammalleri. Unlike Gionta, he can actually create something when 1 on 1.

It's amazing to see a guy so fast with his size. Along with Pacioretty these are two guys we need to make any kind of push.

He could have at least 3-4 goals by now but he has been snake bitten.

Hopefully, management is taking notice...its no coincidence our best lines involve him, Pacioretty or Eller/AK and one of the worst combinations has been Gio-Pleks-Cammy. BIG bodies are necessary.

we dont look like smurfs when the smaller guys are spread trough the 4 lines, all the big guys arent heavy hitters (Eller for example), but having one of them on each makes it WAY tougher for the opponent to contain our offense.

Cole is only 205, but he plays like a warrior and his feet never stop.

They're a very different team without Pronger, but I'll take it.

I'm sure he heard the "bust" word more than once when he went to a restaurant or to fill up for gas.

It ain't Carolina here...

fans do recognize him right away on the street.

I hope Gauthier, Gainey and others are watching and realize NOW that power forwards with SIZE, STRENGTH AND SKILL make differences and create scoring chances for smaller wingers on there respective lines.

This is why I wanted to draft a player like Tyler Biggs this pasy year!

I would love to see a line with Pacioretty - Eller - Cole one night ;-)

Definitely his best game - at least what I've seen to date. He actually looked interested in playing.

I knew back in his Cariolina games that he was a fluid skater, but I had no idea he had this hidden extra gear in him?! Mother of hell, when he goes after the puck, his speed is almost unmatchable. One thing that I noticed tonight is that he wasn't holding back as much, Martin has to figure out (yeah I know, it's an impossible job with his hard-headed mule) that forcing Cole to play that conservative defensive system will only make you hide his assets. He's really good along the boards, and when he hits, man does he hit hard! Anyways, yesterday was really a fun game to watch.

Last night he played like he is capable of playing. Hopefully that's what we see from now on.
