If Ryder is as good as every is trying to let on, why would the Habs trade im? Goal scoring has been their biggest problem of late.

By the way, I will continue to discuss this with you since you're rational. The guy that just learned the word "punk" is no longer showing up on my screen.
AY, to me the idea of the rental is to bolster,not switch. Ryder has holes in his game, but he's a streaky scorer. He's probably the type that some GM's think, 'if I put him with my playmaking C, he'll light it up.' He could be, I'm not sure.

Just swapping Ryder/Doan probably improves Mtl, but not enough offense to justify trading 20 games for 1 year +. Anyways, you feel it doesn't adress Pho. needs anyways so....

I guess we can argue value, but to me, it's not a fit. Has to be a goalie prospect.
