Ryder is about as maddeningly inconsistent as they come...and thats when hes actually playing. Lets not forget he couldnt crack Montreal's lineup come playoff time last season.
Rolston may be as old but he would fit Gomez better than Jagr every could. Rolston is much faster, has a much better shot, and probably has more leadership than Jagr. I don't think he would refuse taking shootouts. Jagr is seeking at least 2 years and he is 2 years older than Rolston.

As for Ryder, yes he had an off year but playing with Gomez or Drury is just what he needs and he can score. A change of scenery and a chance at playing will help him get his game back. And most teams aren't going to make a change like that to their team. Montreal had a very good team and they weren't going to change anything until the goaltending. To not crack that lineup is not something to be ashamed of. They were heavily stacked.
