I don’t know how far away it is in your heads, but when Cole Caufield was injured, Martin St-Louis mentioned that the hardest thing for his club was not going to be replacing his goals – even though he scores a lot.
Kirby Dach, a young man who must have a lower rate of jokes per hour than Caufield, mentioned on the Empty Netters podcast just how funny Caufield is… all the time.
“I’ll be in the dressing room almost in tears [laughing] listening to Cole babbling on about something & I’m thinking what the fuck is going, we have a meeting in 5 mins & half the team’s laying on the floor laughing at this shit right now 😂” – Kirby Dach on @EmptyNettersPod https://t.co/faNj65cPNg

Basically, the striker mentions that Caufield often talks nonsense. Not everyone understands what he’s saying all the time, but hey. It’s a detail.
Sometimes I wonder what’s going on. We’re five minutes into a game and half the team is on the floor laughing their asses off. – Kirby Dach on Cole Caufield
Of course, this isn’t exactly a stunning revelation, since we know that Caufield has an infectious smile and a good sense of humor. We suspect that in the second half of the season, his absence undoubtedly created a big void in the dressing room.
But now, with revised expectations in Montreal and healthy guys, Caufield will be able to “show off” to more regulars than ever before. And until he proves otherwise, he’ll be doing so for (at least) eight years.
