Would you consider moving Cole if the price is right?
At 33 years old Cole is having a career year for our floundering team. Seeing the return some below average players are garnering would you make him available for trade? I think most of us are in agreement the Canadiens are not in a position to be cup contenders in the next 1 or 2 years. In which time Cole's best years will start to fall into the rear view mirror. If the potential for a large return for Cole is there would you move him? (assuming he'd waive his NTC of course)
Pretty classless to sign a respected veteran UFA to a 4 year deal then trade him during the 1st year of his contract. I say no. He has done a great job with Max and I think he's a great mentor for a lot of the younger guys.
Some of you would trade your parents if yo could. Sheesh.
There's no discussion. Most consistent Hab all year up front, has brought out the best in Desharnais and Pacioretty, and committed to Montreal for 4 years. Unless you have something that blows the doors off, no chance.
