Big statement about Cole Caufield, and fans agree with the strong comments

Since the beginning of the season, there's a phenomenon that is becoming increasingly concerning. Cole Caufield was perceived as a potential candidate to score 40 goals or more, but there's a scoring drought.

The young forward has only scored one goal at 5-on-5, one on the power play, and three in 3-on-3 situations. After 15 games, this is a low output for the leading scorer of a team.

Cole and Nick Suzuki were separated by Martin St-Louis, and it didn't have the desired effect. Cole isn't producing more, and Nick doesn't have anyone to finish his plays. They need to be put back together, or at least, Caufield should be played more often.

Michel Bergeron made a recent statement about this, and he's absolutely right. Cole is currently playing on the team's third line with Christian Dvorak.

"He won't help his team win by playing with Christian Dvorak. The Canadiens' best goal scorer is Cole Caufield...what is he doing with the 3rd or 4th center? I don't understand."

"It's time to put Caufield with [Sean] Monahan. Everyone likes his line, but it's time for a change."

When you look at the players' ice time, Christian Dvorak is indeed the third most utilized center, and his wingers follow suit.

Bergy's idea is well-received by most fans. A line consisting of Sean Monahan, Cole Caufield, and Tanner Pearson could be strong, for example.
