Something I like about him is how he really seem to enjoy playing the game, and just being there. He seems to have a great attitude. I hope it stays for the duration of his contract. What a great model for Max and Desharnais!

I just had a flash: Cole, scoring on Theodore during the Carolina cup run, trolling Gilmour... Man, I used to hate him so, so much.

The most awesome stat about Cole is that he has yet to have a multi-goals game which means he has scored in 22 different games.



He is one of the most consistent goal scorer this year.

I've been wondering why this guy doesn't have an A. If gill leaves at the deadline, I can see Cole getting it.

I don't understand why he doesn't have the C to be honest. Gionta seems like the wrong guy entirely.

Cole, Gorges and Plekanec are the best choices.

His goal yesterday was just boss. He wanted the puck, he took it, made Chara and Thomas his female dogs.

Gionta's a JM kind of captain. And why make Cole a captain if he's doing his role perfectly fine as it is?

Because he's got leadership, he works every shifts, he's got grit, talent, hits, has a winner attitude, can both shoot and pass, he's consistent, the media are already interviewing him basically every game, he's the kind of guy the coach tell his players to copy... oh and he happens to be the MVP skater on this team.

Jersey with a C > Jersey with no C

You can't defeat logic.

Now that's just answering the question though, I wouldn't do that before and if Gionta is traded over the summer. And in all honesty I'd give it to Gorges anyway I think, but Cole deserves a A that's for sure.

Cole was born to be a Hab. To bad we got him in his thirty's. this guy always plays great in Montreal, and this year is a continuation of this.

After watching the Habs take on the Bruins last night, you can't deny how good a line they have in Max Pacioretty, Erik Cole and David Desharnais. The trio combined for four points and a plus-6 rating. While Pacioretty and Cole are 76 per cent and 62 per cent owned in Yahoo! leagues respectively, Desharnais remains available in 80 per cent of leagues. Despite how good they've been together, I could see the Canadiens trading Cole while his value is about as high as it's ever going to get.

Is this guy on crack?

Hahahahahahahaha. Trade Cole? What the **** are you thinkin buddy? PG would be fired so fast I doubt he'd have hung up the phone from the trade call before he was told to start packing.

I'd trade Cole for a ridiculous return like a 1st and an A-level prospect like Tarasenko or Granlund. Other than that no thanks, he's a great mentor for Patches.

All I can really say is... Erik Cole is ****ing awesome

Good thing a lot of fans on these boards aren't our GM, so many people wanted him gone after the first few games

First 15 games: 3 Goals 2 assists -3
Last 43 games: 19 Goals, 20 assists +14

Playing the whole year like his last 43 games, he'd be on pace for 36 Goals and 38 assists and a +27 for the year.

He's exactly the type of player that everybody was *****ing and moaning that we needed for a long time, and now some people want to trade him? There are some really moronic people out there..

Gauthier deserves some credit.

PG isn't nearly as bad as some people make it seem like.

Or acquiring Eller.

Or Emelin. Or Diaz. Or managing to trade Cammy.

Does anybody else think Cole will surpass his previous high of 30 goals this year? He needs 4 goals in 11 games..He should be able to do it if all goes well!
