Some good comments in this thread...

Let me start by saying that I haven't liked the way Ryder has handled his contract situations each time he's been RFA. Being a GM entails looking after the current state of the team, as well as the future state of the team. In my opinion, Ryder will not be around after this season because of his contract situation. If you ask me, Ryder is probably the MOST babied player on this team. He never loses his spot on the first line no matter how he plays.

It has become more and more evident that Saku is the ultimate key on this team. We folded so quickly when we lost him last year. ANYBODY can produce with Saku on their line, that much is clear, but why does Ryder get to stay there so long? Personally if I was Carbo, I would put Kovalev with Saku to get him going. And I think Ryder has some very good trade value because he's still inexpensive this year. I like Ryder as a person, he seems like a likeable guy, but I think we cater to him way too much.
