Well he did, it's been a long time since we had a guy who crashed the net like he does. Still, this move needed to be done.

Ryder's release on a Chucky or Eller pass will be money for sure.

Regardless of the pick, I think MB's first NHL trade demonstrates talents and abilities to negotiate he's done in the minor league moves and signings.

This guy is going to be a great GM.

What sense of entitlement are you talking about?

Actually, Ryder is coming off his best season yet, and Cole just wasn't working. All bias aside, I think that this might be a win to the Canadiens on paper. Hopefully we see the same results on ice.

Amazing move by Bergevin! Getting rid of Cole and getting an expiring contract.
Ryder should be better than Cole goal scoring wise too.

Cole hasn't hit as much here as in Carolina, but he was still a strong contributor physically and driving the net fearlessly.

I'm on the fence about the deal.

I think Cole will get going and have a solid finish, how long can he maintain his current(or 11-12) level of play? I was expecting to NOT play up to his cap hit at least the final year of his deal, but he was a bargain last year.

A big factor in the deal is what MB does with the extra cap space. It would be shocker if Kaberle wasn't gone so another 4.25 mil gone leaving almost 17 mil to sign 7 players(mostly depth plus 1-2 regulars).

Cole has won a Stanley cup before and it looks like the Stars are stacking up on playoff veterans.

Reporters suck for the most part. However, they are employed and they know how to stay employed.
I just don't see how in a city like Montreal, where hockey is literally everywhere, there could be players who are that bad in the room without people knowing about it. Then when he's gone they all ride in like sheep saying he was a problem in the locker room. It doesn't make sense.

Next trade... re-acquire Halak.... so we can all bring the "Ryder, Halak and a 2nd" meme back to life.

Cole has size, but that size has been dead weight this season

I love this trade.

+We just cleared up cap space. Gives us room to make a UFA run sooner than we thought.
+Cole's contract was going to be ugly sooner rather than later
+I don't think Cole was happy here anymore.
+We got a draft pick out of it.
+Ryder is a nice option, this team desperately needed more scoring. Was always a fan.

-Cole's leadership will be missed.
-Ryder can't do anything but score goals.
-Less size, OMG smurfs, etc.

You are crazy.

However, that should be a very offensive minded line with a lot of scoring potential.

Wonder if Ryder takes 72 or Gallagher takes 72?

Which one of you just called into TSN 690 to call Eller soft?
