So he wouldn't be a good fit on the wing in a sens uniform? Money aside I was saying that Cole would have been good for our second line. I too think his contract is too high but he is still a type of player we need at least for the short term or until we can get 2nd line play out of our prospects/rookies.
I think he would have been a solid pick up at the right price.
Some guys are just meant to play for certain teams, and seem to do better there. Trevor linden comes to mind. OK with Montreal, awful with the Islanders, put him back in the Canucks uniform and BAM instantly a better hockey player.
