  • Drafts Tinordi 6'6
  • Trades for Eller(6'2) and Schultz(6'2) and specifically cites that he did so because the habs needed size and that Schultz brings a unique element.
  • Acquires Cole (6'2)
  • Trades Russell(small forward) for Blunden (6'4)
  • Trades Cammalleri(Small forward) for Bourque (6'2)
  • Brings in Emelin (6'2)

In my book, he's our MVP (slightly above Price).
It seems that Eric is missing Erik more than Erik does.

I feel bad that I bashed Cole in the first few games of this season.

For everyone who thinks Cole's contract is too long, this guys game will age well. He may lose a step or two in a couple years but he will still be effective. It was a good pickup and the extra year was necessary for him to leave Carolina.

Now if we can only get Umberger cheap I'd be happy.

Gionta was better than I expected him to be. He stepped in as captain admirably and scored 28 goals (in 61 games) on a small team. Personally, I think that's better than Cole's career year, but arguments could be made for both.

Kaberle is 5th in points on the team.
I would say he is doing just fine.
I think he will improve.
Seems like a good trade to me.

Erik Cole 45 17 16 33
Max Pacioretty 42 15 17 32
Tomas Plekanec 45 9 22 31
David Desharnais 45 7 24 31

Andrei Kostitsyn 35 10 8 18

The fact that Kaberle is 5th in points at 18 only highlights how miserable our offence really is.

But but but Habs fans claimed PG realized only a few days ago that we need size by trading Cammy.

Cole was a good signing. He's a big forward that drives to net, many times drawing penalties. He does a good job standing in front of the net and has good chemistry with Max Pac and DD. The guy plays with heart.

Cole is in great shape, and is all about leading by example. I cannot see why anyone would expect his production and play to drop off significantly over the next three years just because he's in his mid-30s.

He's playing great this season. If he is at the very least a slightly-above-average player for the rest of his contract, it's still a great signing.

No negativity allowed!

Imagine if he would have been playing like this since the start of the year. It basically took him about 15 games to get comfortable. If you take out the first 15 games of the season (3G 2A), these are his stats:

30GP- 14G 14A -28 Points +8

Not bad at all Erik, not bad at all!

At that rate he'll finish the season with 72 points.

bro , lets look at the facts

I have no issue with Cole at all , never did

but understand what I have mentioned on previous threads

as good as he has played , we arent going anywhere

We are not a Cole away from anything

I need Cole at 24 not 34 , plus WE ARE NOT MAKING THE PLAYOFFS

so how great a signing is this , seriously ? he has played well but comon folks , when you sign these guys like Cole , its to put you

over the top and or moving into contender status , not to be 8 points out with no shot at making it realistically

once again these bandaid patch deals get you knowhere , when you dont have a core group to work with

when Cole is on your top line with DD , it shows how far off we are to compete for anything and thats what its all about

this is not a bash Cole thread , its reality and the bottom line how bad we really are
