(DAL)-Ryder to (PIT)-??

Ryder currently is signed for this season at 3.5mil and is a top 6 wing. He is a UFA at the end of this season. Solid scoring at 2.5pts / 60min at even strength. Him being at a UFA in 6 months has to be considered in this deal.

What does DAL want in return for this player?

(Pens have tons of D prospects, some of which are NHL ready)

I propose Tyler Kennedy + (1 of Morrow, Depres, or ??) + 2nd round pick

TK currently scores at top 6 rate (roughly 2.0pts / 60min on average) and is probably a top 6 forward on DAL #2 line. He makes 1.5mil less (which is huge to DAL) and fills in most of Ryder's scoring hole. TK is still a RFA at the end of this season. He is a very underrated player by most here, and usually played against top competition on Staal's line. I don't want to trade him, but probably have to include him to return some of Ryder's scoring.

Big D also gets their pick of a solid D prospect not named Pouliott. Most of the remaining prospects are of decent value and pedigree. Certainly not elite prospects, but most likely a couple of NHLer's in there.
