On top of that, every player on this hockey team not named Travis Moen seems to be slumping right now and no one really looks good. Cole is to blame for his play thus far, but so are many other things. For now, let's keep the 'I told you so' posts in our back pockets for now and see what happens. It's been a long seven games but it's only been seven games.
Fine. Let's revisit this after 27 games (1/3 of a regular season).

Let's revisit under a coach who knows how to better use offensive skills.

No disrespect but he's old and been through a lot. He even broke his neck. Time for him to get down to hoist a few El Presidentes on Sosua Beach.

How about that he is just warming up.

The Lockout seemed to disturb him more than most.

It's not helpful crap on players...

edit: this thread is ancient.

That was just to show how ridiculous the complaints were last year and obviously right now.

Some things don't change.

They should give him an assist on the desharnais goal.

He deflected the puck to Pacioretty while he was down.

Cole is the typical veteran slow starter, these guys usually need a training camp to get the juices flowing.
I'll be looking at Cole in 10 games, in the mean time he's a non-issue

Cole played his best game of the season by far today.

Now we need Max to start scoring.

What's up with Cole? What's up with polls taken after 8 games?

There's nothing wrong with Cole, he's contributing and wil be fine. With the early success of the team playing minutes are being redistributed more evenly across lines. Inevitably Therien will need to shorten the bench in certain circumstances and Cole will get more in line with his career averages. If he doesn't it means other players are playing well and that's a good thing too.
