Ryder scores 30 in his sleep, he's done it 6 times with 2 seasons of 25 goals or more. Him and Erik Cole aren't in the same boat.
When the trade was made I kind of half jokingly stated that Ryder would out-produce Cole 2-1, looks like it might be worse than first thought. lol
Ryder has 2x 30 goal seasons with us, and a 35 with the stars
At his age I would be leary to sign him at more than 2 years and that REALLY depends on the price. That being said we are in the midst of a youth movement and I'd rather give the spot to someone younger.
Bourque is still under contract, what do you do with him?
It's not as easy as some make it sound with the cap going down and some youth needing to be served.
For this year I couldn't be happier, not sure about moving forward
