I know this is a joke thread, but Cole was a 30-goal, 60-point player as recently as last year and his trade value will probably never be lower than it is right now. If JR ever had any intention of bringing him back this would be the time to do it.

I don't want it to happen, I'm just sayin'.

if he didn't have to give up much and got say Robidas too I'd do it.

Mike Murphy....maybe.

8 points in 30 games and $4.5m/yr cap hit for the next two years. Already has had one "change of scenery" this year and it hasn't worked to this point. Plays the same position as Semin, so how does he even fit with Stall?

The only thing that would make sense (from a 'Canes perspective at least) is Ruutu straight up

That would actually be a good move, if you're going to get stuck with a contract. Cole's deal is one year shorter and a little bit cheaper. I'd rather keep Ruutu but I could see it making sense from a book keeping perspective.

Remember when everyone wanted to string JR up by the balls because Cole had a good year last year?

It seems people are always wanting to string JR up by his huevos. The rationale sort of all blurs together after awhile.

Looking at our cap page, if we get Semin to a 5 million contract, and resign everyone else to 1 million/League minimum, we'll have 4 million in cap space.

Just enough to trade for Cole if Dallas eats a third of his salary.

Not at all.

I suggested instead, trading a guy we don't even have signed!

With even more irony, it looks like the Hurricanes are poised to compete for a playoff spot, with the Southeast division looking incredibly weak this year. How weak, you ask? Well, if Columbus and Winnipeg switch, Columbus will have a good chance of winning the division.

It's coming. It's just a matter of when.
Hello Habs fan here!

Irony you said...
