It's not as easy as it sounds. Other teams will also be targeting Clarkson and Clowe. We have to be prepared, if we let Ryder walk, to end up with none of the three players. Not saying it's the end of the world, just that you can't assume that you will get the UFA you want. Statistically, the chances of that happening are low. So, if Ryder has a good playoff, and he wants to re-sign for a reasonable amount, it is very risky to say now and just HOPE to get another player for probably no less money and maybe fewer goals.
