Not what I said.

Clowe was eager for a sign and trade. It has become painfully obvious that Ryder is not in the plans for next year the way Therrien is using him now.

Clowe for Ryder in a straight up deal.

Murray went to Pittsburgh for two 2nd round picks. One for 2013. One for 2014 that is conditional on Murray signing with the Pens.

So Clowe and Murray would have cost us one 2nd round pick this year for sure and Bergevin could cut him free and not use the 2nd round pick in 2014..........or sign Murray to solve one of our problems......size and toughness on the back end.

As it looks now, we will get nothing for Ryder when he leaves and Clowe is playing for the Rangers.

Not very strategic on Bergevin's part. I hope he learns from his mistake.

But hell, we have a ton of picks that may or may not pan out in 3-6 years. The future in Montreal for winning a Cup again is always bright.........two or so years from now........same as its been for 20 years.
