Erik Cole Brings Back Ryan Smyth Memories

from David Staples of The Cult of Hockey,

So I’ll predict that this year (Erik) Cole get both kinds of luck, good and bad, and put him at 63 games and 55 points.

He will also hit, bleed, screen, bull, scrape, muck and grind enough to conjure up valid visions of Ryan Smyth.

And, as the season progresses, all of that will put Kevin Lowe in the same extremely difficult position as he was with Smyth: figuring just out how much to pay over how many years for a skilled, tough and admirable player, but one with a history of injury.

It will be a difficult, controversial decision and it’s one of the main story lines of the year

much more on the roll Cole will play this year…
