My point was strictly what did Montreal get. I didn't want Ryder to walk. I wanted futures. You think we have enough and I don't think we do, especially on defense. If Ryder could have been used to nab a young defenseman wow wouldn't that be nice. Even if it cost Ryder+ for J. Morrow in Pittsburgh Dallas would have been much better off.

Niewendyk made a bad trade. Ryder had tons of value and we blew it on a subpar return. If he had such a hard on for Cole he could have been acquired later in a separate deal. They should have asked for Leblanc or something else had we said no to Cole at that price.

Besides not all futures pan out so better to have several and see who works than limit themselves to old has beens hoping every young guy in the AHL they think will make it actually does.
