The Cole-Ryder-trade... At first a trade that made no sense to me. For Dallas at least. But Cole has found his rhyme in Dallas and in Montreal Ryder have been doing okay. But Montreal also made a switch from a guy with another year on his contract for a UFA next summer. Despite his okay start - and the fact that he is a great sniper(30 goal season last year) - Ryder was the odd man out in the Montreal numbers game last night. I think that move might have something to do with the fact that they needed to make room for Lars Eller/Galchenyuk/Gallagher/who-ever-you-see-as-the-root-of-the-problem.
So the Cole trade might work to Ellers advantage. Maybe they plan to keep Galchenyuk and Eller together and then sell Ryder again or someone else? You can say that Montreal have a lot of options with their forwards and Ellers good play saved him from being dumped more permanently on the 4'th line?!
