I know Carbonneau would love a player like Doan too.
Doan is a UFA, that incredibly decreases his value. Ryder is a RFA, who will get 1/2 of Doan's salary if he's lucky.

If Doan were an RFA, he'd have much more value than Ryder...But Ryder gives Phoenix a 30 goal scorer for years to come. Hence the trade is very fair, if not in Phoenix' favor, since MTL won't have the money to re-sign Doan.
