I like Not love the trade. We all know Ryder can shoot and is selfish. Last time he was here he wasn't passing and was expected to put up 1st line stats. As long as we don't depend on Ryder for scoring we should be ok. Don't expect Ryder to throw his body around or plant himself in front of the net.
Here's my breakdown of the players
-Ryder > Cole in shooting/sniping
-Cole > Ryder in size and speed
-Ryder 2 years younger and last year of contract, Cole 2 more years
This isn't a blockbuster trade, its just a trade for the future. We freed up Cole's $9 mil, Dallas keeps an asset. Somewhere we manage to grab a 3rd round pick in what is a very deep draft year.
We use that 3rd rounder to pick Jordan Subban.
