I feel Dallas got the shaft more than Ryder. Ryder is at least scoring goals.

Cole has really really struggled this year in Montreal. He has two years left at 4.5. I like this move for Montreal. Ryder has 14 points in 19 games for the Stars. Is a UFA at the end of the year. Really actually like this move for Montreal.

EDIT: Mike Heika is reporting Dallas sent a third along with Ryder for Cole

I have no idea why Dallas would do that Ryder was playing well for them

Holy crap; Ryder was having a good year for Dallas and there is speculation that Cole will retire at season's end.

Timonen has more points than Karlsson.

Timonen for Vezina, Norris, and the Presidents' trophy.

Talked to GM Joe. He said he likes the fact that Cole is a bigger player who is under contract for 2 more years. A strong net presenc

Dallas got the shaft I think personally. Dallas is probably not making any splashes as far as playoffs go so if you're hell bent on losing Ryder then sell him off for a future asset. Not a a guy in his mid thirties. If you're going to make a run then Ryder is at worst just as good and much younger so don't move him.

I just don't see the benefit here. A guy like Cole isn't hard to find via free agency if Ryder doesn't re-sign. Best case scenario they're down a third rounder for a version of Ryder that will regress for two seasons. Worst case Cole retires or does horribly and they basically gifted Ryder and a third.

I love watching Boston play. Every line is physical and they look like a machine. Exactly how I wished the Flyers looked.

It's because Joe Nieuwendyk is a terrible GM.

Bruins are a good team, a really good team. You factor in their available cap space, their young corps, their coaching staff and the delightful Jack Edwards and you start realizing the B's are a going to be Cup favourite this year and many more to come.

You know growin' up in Montreal, I used to want to smash the TV anytime the Ol' man tuned into NESN (WSBK back in the day) and his beloved Bruins but I'll tell you, as the years march on, I just can't help but love his ridiculously homer calls, manic rants and childish tirades.

And that's why we shipped Bob off to the proverbial Siberia of the NHL. Brutal!

I'm think I'm one of the few non-Bruins fans that actually likes the guy. He's bat **** crazy but I find it really funny.

Any guy crazy enough to compare a hockey game to the revolutionary war gets my approval.

Is it possible that Bob lets in a weaker goal than the Eakins softie? Yes, Yes it is.

I do have to add to my statement that I was going through the thread on the main board about worst homer announcers. Someone posted Edwards' call of game 7 when the Flyers came back to eliminate the Bruins. He wasn't committing verbal suicide or getting on the team; he called it straightforward, and was actually complimentary of the Flyers for their tenacity.

I am a fan of the game, and I want announcers to be able to show admiration for a great play, no matter which team does it. Edwards' shenanigans are ridiculous and unprofessional, to me. The low point was him laughing maniacally when Lucic slammed Jones from behind. It takes away from the game on the ice. Again, for me.

I liked him when he used to do the Little League World Series on ESPN.
