Erik Cole never used his size, so Montreal doesn't suffer from a loss in height here.

Further to @TSNBobMcKenzie, the Ryder-Cole trade still awaiting trade call. The Habs also get a draft pick in the deal. Cole waived NTC

I think lebrun just confirmed that we got a pick, not necessarily a 3rd.

Well, he made some nice hits this year, like yesterday against big Methot.

Cole didn't want to be here. He played like it and Renaud just said he wasn't particularly popular in the room anymore. Said he was a negative element in that room.

And Ryder is younger, can score and isn't signed beyond this year.

I'm happy.

I'm not sure I like this and it's not due to the quality of both players but in terms of style. How does Ryder play nowadays? I remember him as a perimeter/high-slot player. We'll only have Bourque as a net-crashing big winger now. But hey, we're still rebuilding despite the results this year. We'll have young players to sign. I'll give Ryder his chance but I hope he has nothing to do with the player that used to try dekes all the time despite sucking at it.

How the heck is that true? Cole used his size all the time when driving to the net.

Pierre Lebrun CONFIRMS we're getting a pick!!! My bet is that it's a 2014 pick. Dallas wouldn't give a 3rd round in 2013.

Change "is" to "was" and your post is pretty accurate.

You cant hang your hat on what a player did last year. Does not help the team this year.

Eff RDS, I'm not Cole's biggest fan but they are going too far with Cole: out of shape, bad in the locker room, negative attitude, etc etc. What do they know.

I understand what you mean but having a contract is normally a positive. And 5M for a guy that scored 35 last year and is not very old is not that much. It depends if you think he'll bounce back or not.

If the habs got a 3rd and gave nothing more, Bergevin just got a favor back from Dallas for the Ribs trade. (That's the polite way of saying he fleeced them big times)

Gainey.

Ryder has had a much better season so far, although Cole seemed to be waking up. Then again, Cole seemed to be waking up on SB weekend and he was back in a slump a few days later.

Dallas has EDM's 3rd and MIN's 3rd, along with their own, it would be sweet to get any of those 3rds.

I disagree with this.

He always finished his checks, he didn't hit to destroy like Lucic, but he was consistently hitting the other teams' players. He his a lot more than most of the people on the team.

He used his speed to drive to the net, and usually beat his opponent to the outside. When he didn't beat the defender, more often than not he was either bumped off the puck or forced into a corner.

Solid move to get rid of Cole's contract...two more years at 4.5
