I don't think it changes much to be honest. Nieuwendyk still hasn't done anything yet during his tenure to make us think he is willing to trade good pieces away at the deadline. The only way he trades Ryder is if the team is terrible. So oddly enough I disagree with you for the sole reason that we did sign Whitney, whom I think will have a productive year and help our team.

I was a big Ribs fan but even with the #2 center position still in question I think our team is better with the subtraction of Ribeiro and the addition of Whitney, Eakin's potential contributions notwithstanding.
