I don't support the people saying "good riddance" and other insults at Cole. He was a great benefit to this team, and he even started turning around on his struggling play.
I am sure Dallas will enjoy him there. He's due for a hot streak. And I hope the best for him
Now, Ryder back. He annoyed me a bit at the end of his tenure with the Habs, but I heard he turned his ethics around and became a hard worker. I have no reason to hold any grudges, and I hope he'll fit well with Eller and the rest of the team.
The extra cap flexibility, I made a new thread to discuss it already.
Overall, im happy with this trade even if I am sad to see Cole go. Since we are all playing much, much more aggressive forechecks, I suspect his presence was marginally less essential than last year. Plus, im sadly admitting he wasn't rushing the net as much as he should have. Bourque, Patch, Prust and Gallagher are pulling off the Power Forward mentality much better this year.
