Anyway, I don't see Gainey acquiring this guy and with good reason (Asking price will be high). I'd much rather get a rental that's a proven playoff performer.
How do you know the asking price will be high? Have you talked to Barnett recently? If you have I wonder if you could tell me if the Nagy rumours are true?
If Gainey lands Doan and a conditional pick for Ryder I will build a golden statue of him on my front lawn.
It's easy to be critical of Ryder's game lately. I am. I don't see how scoring less helps a goal starved team.If he has a hot streak in him, they need to benefit from it.
Doan's a really atttractive player, but Ryder doesn't really make sense, unless Doan has a future here and I'd bet heavily that he doesn't. Besides, he makes no sense for Phoenix,as their posters have explained. They'd go young and cheap in a deal. I wonder how things would look if Doan finished out the year here and suited up beside Ryder in Phoenix next year ? Could easily happen.

I'm not being critical of his game lately, he's just simply not a valuable player, especially to the Habs. The Habs are so deep on the wing and have more prospects coming up. I guarantee Kostitsyn will put up better numbers than ryder when he's even just half NHL ready if he gets top line RW duty because he's essentially the same player with a lot more speed, creativity, flair and an even better shot to boot. Ryder is very expendable.
I agree, it makes no sense from Phoenix's standpoint (although Comrie
traded for a garbage AHL cancer), I've said that from the beginning but don't tell me Doan makes no sense for Montreal. Is there even a single player available out there who isn't a rental? One of Doan's caliber anyways? Could we land him if there was? No, no and no. Not to mention he'd cost a fortune if that player existed. The precedent has been set. Rentals
worth young players and draft picks and if Doan is going to be available, Barnett will (well, maybe not, it
Barnett) be asking for a lot.
