I believe Ryder and Ribeiro are still restricted free agents next year.

Both will be 27. Ryder will have 4 accrued seasons, Ribeiro will have 6 accrued seasons. (Although just barely conceivably, I don't recall, he might have been on the Habs roster for 40 games in 1999-00, although he only played in 19... if he was around and scratched for the other 21 games, I guess he could be UFA...)
Having top end talent with the Ribs and Bonk gone makes more sense to me. Pleks and Johnson and Murray can eat up most of the remaining minutes
