Ribeiro, to his credit changed his game and played stronger on the puck, and didn't hide on the permiter. Until last year, I thought Savard was a soft offense guy, a guy that I didn't really believe in. He's better than I thought he was but this talk surprises me, he's a perfect fit in Boston. They have a few wingers who need a guy like him, Ryder being one of them.

If Savard's price tag is too high at 5, is giving Ryder 4 a competent move ?
From the Boston Herald article, it seems like the reason for Savard being on the trade market would be due to cap issues... and Ryder's $4 million are definitely contributors to those issues.
