Habs don't have a lot of roster openings for next season. But there aren't a lot of quality options to consider as alternatives for any openings we do have. I think when Ryder was filling the net after the trade, he looked like a good re-sign, despite not being an ideal fit stylistically. We needed goals, he got goals, lots of them, and the market didn't (and still doesn't) look too hot.

Now... well, I think it's more up to him. And why wouldn't he explore the market? With the dwindling availability of decent players, he can probably bank on a nice premium contract. I would take him back, but more on the discount side than on the premium side, giving his imperfect stylistic fit to our needs, and there's just no sense for him in taking that, so I expect it won't really matter. He'll explore the market, and he'll succeed in finding a nice payday that is really beyond anything we could or should consider paying him.
