I have to say upon reflection, it's hard to criticize this trade. Ryder's considerably outproduced Cole this season, so it's hard to say it makes the team seriously weaker this season. Next season we're free of Cole's salary for the both the years most people thought made the deal a bad one and have picked up a 3rd round pick that could be fairly high.

If you can overpay on the UFA market, get your money's worth or more for a season or two and then turn the contract into a third rounder plus a rental replacement for your lineup, you're doing something right.
