Nick Suzuki makes no secret of the fact that Cole is his best friend on the team, and their chemistry is simply amazing. He's very happy to have the chance to build something solid with Cole for many years to come.
When you look at a team like the Toronto Maple Leafs, who give very big salaries to four players, you understand why they aren't capable of winning in the current salary cap era. They lack depth year after year.
Nick and Cole could have hit the jackpot, even if it meant accepting shorter offers, but they're in Montreal to win.
The Habs' plan to build around these two talented young forwards is an excellent idea. Not only do they give their all on the ice, they produce, show great leadership and have an impeccable attitude.
When the time comes to sign young Kaiden Guhle and company, the fact that the team's two best forwards have accepted less money will weigh heavily in the balance. It's a winning mentality that's taking hold in Montreal, and it's very exciting for the future.
