I'm the first to admit that I was wrong about the Cole vs Ryder trade. Initially, I was unhappy primarily because I preferred Cole's style of play instead of Ryder's. However, Ryder has truly impressed me thus far. In my opinion, he's earned the right to negotiate an extension with this team.
However, we must remember that Marc Bergevin stated that he traded Cole due to the length of his contract and for cap space reasons. Therefore, it would be difficult to envision Marc resigning him for a period of 3 years around 4 mil per season. With the cap going down, and with impending contract extensions for Subban & other young players, it will be tricky.
Still, I believe a 2 year contract at 4 mil would be a fair deal. I would find a way to make it happen.
