      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Trade] Erik Cole to Stars for Michael Ryder

Recommended Posts

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.

Dallas just likes losing players it seems. Richards, Ribeiro, Neal, Ryder, and soon to be Morrow. Watch out Eriksson, looks like you might be next.

Imagine how good the Stars would be if they kept all their stars.

I know some moves had different motivations, but even still, they could have gotten a lot more in return than they have.

Ryder has not been very productive in Dallas, in contrast to last season. Cole is a point-producer, even though he is not a talented sniper. He can rack up points and has limited skills, whereas, Ryder cannot rack up points and has skills. Also, the 3rd pick Dallas received makes this deal a steal for them.

You have this completely backwards. MTL got the pick. And Ryder has been successful this year and last, whereas Cole has not been good this year.

That's a strange trade for the Stars..

They probably could have traded them for each other straight up so it's odd that a third rounder was tossed into the mix.

I think Montreal must have wanted out of the Cole Contract(cap going down next year). Dallas probably have a tough time attracting guys so they get someone who will be there for a couple more years. The only thing is that with Bourque out now Montreal are pretty soft/small again.

A lot of our players don't have great hands. People don't want to trade Hansen because he's fast and works hard, same with Raymond, but these players can't score (especially Hansen). You need to have dynamic players to win.

To the person who said Morrow would cost us Hansen, I would gladly do Hansen+ in a deal for Morrow.

Really I was actually thinking Montreal lost huge in this trade. Cole's had a slow start this year but was one Montreal's best players last year and plays a more phyiscal game then Ryder which Montreal needs. Ryder didn't do to well in Montreal last time around and is a UFA at the end of the year.

Wtf... and Habs got a third rounder?? Guess Whitney and rechhi really think they can get Cole going. Plus cole said he wants to retire after this year since he didn't like the new cba

Big win for mtl
