I hope you guys realize he was our best defenceman in the playoffs.

As for the question, well the only shoe-in is Chipchura. D'agostini, Stewart and Valentenko are all three question marks. Pacioretty - I really don't know. But from here - four months away - it looks like only Chips is ready to take over.

Also, something bothers me about the Ryder situation. I have a feeling that Gainey would like to keep him. It's just a feeling but Carbonneau does not like his game. Gainey did mention at the press conference that he didn't know if Ryder would be back or not. Was he just being polite or will he make a half-hearted effort to sign him? I personally would like to keep him but I think he's gone.
I think that if we piece together comments from our posters who hear gossip from The Rock, it's over here. I think Gainey was saying , without being exact, that S.Kost. took his job and Carbo didn't want to use him on a checking line. I think Ryder got frustrated and felt he had no future with their coach, or coaching staff.
