Cole is the best NHL prospect since Mario Lemieux.
He's clearly head and shoulders above Eric Lindros.

Since he’s going to make a negligible amount of money this year anyways, might as well reduce this year’s salary to lower the cap-hit. Also the way that the press release was worded, and how it’s structured, there’s a 100% chance he plays at least 1 NHL game this year.

The most overhyped prospect in the NHL since Nail Yakupov. Can't wait to watch him bust!

For anyone wondering why the cap hit isn't 925,000, it's because the habs are hella, and I mean hella close to the cap

My fandom is irrelevant. As a fan of hockey as a whole, I just think Montreal fans and media have blown the Caufield situation out of proportion. Sure, he can dominate the college game, but how will it translate? How many past Hobey Baker winners have become just average third liners? I see Cole as more of a Mike Hoffman comparable (someone who can finish a play on the powerplay, but useless 5v5) than some of the other comparable I've seen. Coming from a fanbase that overhyped the crap out of Romanov too, I couldn't believe a word of what Habs media says.

Was a pleasure watching him with the Badgers the last two seasons...been watching Badger hockey since 2006 when they won the title and Caufield was easily the most fun and best offensive player I have seen. I have no doubt he will be successful in the NHL.

gonna be one of those guys who just comments on the reactions in the thread and says the opposite, without actually stating an opinion.

Looks like a lot of you think he'll be good, which means he'll be bad. But I didn't say he'll be bad, it's just what I assume because you were collectively wrong about several trades. I'm smart!
