Too be honest, the move from the prospect-deep Oilers to the ???-filled Coyotes should actually open the door a bit to Rieder.

There are many reasons to believe that Rieder can be an NHLer much in the same capacity as Goc. The kid has wherewithall and has overcome adversity on several occasions.

He needs the natural progression, but one has to think that Pheonix grabbed him, because they know he's a guy who should make this league, while Edmonton surely knew he had possibilities, but that they have a number of prospects who are of a similar capacity.

In any case, let's hope Rieder's road to the NHL is, by default, a bit more clearcut now. The boy is a goodin'.
