If they get the same return as Ribeiro, it will be a big win considering he's just a rental and the Caps got a full year with Ribs.
My guess would be they won't get a prospect as close to the NHL as they did with Cody Eakin.
Pretty different situations. The deadline isn't the same climate as the draft. And Eakin + 2nd is basically equivalent to a mid-late 1st. Ryder also doesn't have Ribs' baggage.
