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.
Cole could be a Morrow replacement.
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.
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.
