Cole was just a beast last year. He was everything the Habs wanted; a guy that could drive the net hard, be physical, and get dirty goals. And he did all that. Unfortunately, this year isn't last year. I like this trade because it does get rid of that contract and frees up cap room. Plus, Ryder's got a cannon and uses it well. The 3rd round pick is just icing on the cake. I wanna see what Bergy does next... he's going to have a lot of picks and cap space at his disposal. Big offseason? Trade deadline? Either way, I'm excited.
