I would take back Ryder or Poupou in a second. As well as any upgrade over Bourque on the 3rd line.
This is disingenuous to say, IMO. Ryder was not here to be a 3rd line player, nor was he paid like one. His own sub par play resulted in his being there, but that's not where he was supposed to be. Pouliot was though, and he was a solid contributor especially when you factor in what he got paid. Either way, they lack the skill on the top 6, but the focus is incorrectly being directed to this 3rd line spot. This team has more than enough grinders to fill this role. The real trick is to add to the top 6 and push down a player from that current role to fill this spot.
