Cole Wants To See His Value On The UFA Market

from Chip Alexander of Canes Now,

Canes forward Erik Cole does appear headed to free agency on Friday.

Cole’s agent, Steve Bartlett, confirmed today that Cole would like to test his market value at age 32 and explore what teams might be interested in signing him.

“Erik wants to see what the options are on July 1st,” Bartlett said via email. “That is in no way a slam on the Hurricanes or his appreciation of the role they have played in his career. He has never really explored free agency in his career and feels that he is at the age when it makes sense to see all offers before deciding on what he wants to do.”

he’s had injury problems and never really performed with anyone else besides carolina, but i would love to see the wings take a chance on him for a year @ $3 million.  He’s got size, skill, and isn’t the worst skater in the world.
