Strange trade.


Cole has two years left after this year... Ryder is a UFA at the end of the year

Wow. Cole's underperformance landed him in Dallas. Ryder has been good for Dallas, I guess they feel they can kick Cole into gear

I'm guessing/speculating that things weren't all peachy in the locker room after Cole announced that he might retire over the new CBA.
I like Ryder, he's an underrated player.

Poor Ryder. He wasn't popular when he played for Montreal awhile back. Even worse fishbowl than Vancouver.

Cole played in my hometown a few years way back when, good player and person. I think he is an improvement over ryder. more physical and can still score. Good for them i'd say.

I think that's what makes it so strange. Ryder is as streaky as they come, notwithstanding Cole's slow start this year, and they just lost Bourque to injury.

So obviously Mtl doesn't think Cole will help them going forward compared to the cap room.

Methinks this may have as much to do with the coaches and management as it was not a Bergervin deal. Cole may not be popular in that dressing room too i suspect.

Is it not weird that Dallas trades their highest scorer for a well paid aging veteran?

Ryder's the better player, good trade for Montreal.

Dallas gets worse IMO.

In before "how come Gillis wasn't in on this!"

But this is a weird one, certainly unexpected since Ryder's been good in Dallas. Perhaps they felt they wouldn't be able to re-sign him? Certainly I could see Montreal wanting to make use of their younger players coming up, but who knows.

Sad to see the Pacioretty- Desharnais - Cole line go, but that didn't work out this year. I like the trade!

This is a weird deal. Ryder and Cole both played very well with their teams last season. Ryder was great for Dallas and Cole has awesome chemistry with Desharnais and Pacioretty. I guess they just wanted a change?

What is the deal with Mike Gillis, it always seems like he's sweating...

If Cole is on his game he is the better player IMO, obviously right now he isn't though.

Strange trade, it will be weird to see Ryder back with the Habs. Especially when they take on the B's.

Me too, I am done with Booth. In fact, I am done with us getting Florida players (except for Lui)

Booth & Garrison are a combined cost of over 8 million onto our cap!

Booth has hands of stone. No finish, terrible passer. He's just has speed and bang bodies. We need more playmakers.. And players with decent hands.

That line was already broken up. Cole has really struggled under the new system and looked slow and disinterested. Gallagher took his spot and looked really ggod with pacioretty and DD

This was bound to happen. During the lockout, Cole opened up his mouth too much.

Told by NHL source that Bruins inquired about Michael Ryder but price too high. Believe there is still interest in Brendan Morrow from BOS.
