Bergevin found a taker for a guy who has two more years on his contract who basically showed up out of shape and got a sniper who can match Cole easily in production. Ryder will help the Habs and is playing for a contract. Plus a third rounder. Habs won this trade on a couple of fronts.

Follow the herd.

The first page was pretty negative. So, a lot of people hit the reply button and post something else negative.

It takes about 8-10 pages for the flow to change directions once rational posters take over and explain how this is really a great trade for this season and the next couple of years moving forward.

Considering Cole likely wanted out, Bergevin couldn't have gotten a better deal I think.

Actually I think Ryder will be a better fit with this team. This team lacked a sniper on the wing. They have enough playmakers but not enough players that can shoot the puck. I think this is a great deal today and going forward into the offseason.

They remember only the last couple of games in which he was struggling instead of the 30 goal seasons he had with them.

Great trade, cole was awesome last year, this year he just didn't seem to care.

Shed salary , get some one who ACTUALLY is putting up points, he led Dallas in points.

Maybe this is also a wake up call to Gionta who is definitely sleeping on the job .

Too bad it was not Gionta.

I guess Cole wanted out.

Michael Ryder: 35 goals - 27 assists - 62 points
Erik Cole: 35 goals - 26 assists - 61 points.


Put stats aside too.. This deal is brilliant.

WTF BERGEVIN?

*PUKE* *PUKE*

We hated Ryder in Montreal, couldn't wait till he left. This is what happens when you get an outsider GM who doesn't know what's going on here. If he knew our recent history, we would not have gotten Ryder back, we could not have been beaten by the Leafs like it happened against the Bruins.

Habs gets a whole lot softer.

I agree, Cole's game is more needed in montreal but it's a matter of flexibility. That contract wasn't attractive and we dumped it after getting the best year Cole probably had left in him.

Also got a 3rd in a deep draft.

I get thet cap space side of things, but I find it odd to give up so early on Cole when we all know he is a slow starter. He was just heating up. And he was much more fitting MT's in your face style than Ryder, was a big body, a good leader. Really not sure I like this move.

Good deal. We were desperate for a sniper.

I don't understand the Ryder hate. He's good at what he does.

1. CAP SPACE savings
2. younger and cheaper
3. Cole has sucked the whole year

We just added a dangerous shot to our team, a 3rd round pick, saved salary and got rid of a player who didn't want to play in MTL anymore or in the NHL.

I don't understand how someone could hate this trade.

Didn't Cole have a NTC or NMC in his contract? Does this mean he wanted out and not us wanted to unload him?
