I mean its like we Gainey traded Rivet when were in a playoff race, Rivet at that point wasn't a key player anymore.

Its almost like Ryder, IMO when Bergevin traded for Ryder he knew he wasn't going to re-sign him, but he knew that he could bring something to the table, and that something was valued more than maybe trading Ryder at the trade deadline.
The worst part about that year is that the Canadiens held on to Souray. Imagine what they could have got for him?
It would have been sad at the time but he was a UFA and walked anways.
