The trade was a pretty risky move. Nothing is sure about singing a winger like Perry. So Habs could end with a huge hole on the wing since I doubt they would want to sign a limited player like Ryder to a 3 years deal, which is what he will probably want. And there is no youngster ready on the wings.

Ryder will probably score 4-5 more goals than Cole on the Power Play for the rest of the season, and not all of these goals will have a true impact on the result of the games. And Ryder is not as good as Cole in any other aspect of the game.

Moreover, Cole was the only true Power Forward of the team; Max Pac isn't there yet - he doesn't rush the net with the same autorithy then Cole.

No really, Bergevin MUST use the money saved to sign a significant winger next year. And that makes it a poker move - so Habs can lose it all.
