As for snipers, Ryder is far more dangerous than Pacioretty, imo. I hope he gets resigned.

Also, like it or not, if there was a Ryder 1.0, Ryder could always regress to that. IMHO i'd give him a 1 -2 yr deal or it would be a pass.
Ryder 1.0 was a product of Guy Carbonneau.

Carbo did not know how to manage his players nor was he a very good motivator.

Helluva player, sucked at coaching.

I was really happy about this trade before I even knew there was a pick involved.

Ryder is playing himself out of price range to resign now. It'll be interesting to see how much money he gets.

If he ends up being a rental that got rid of Cole's contract, then I am OK with that.

Michael Ryder is not a fantastic hockey player, but the guy just knows how to score goals. You can't teach something like that, some players just have a knack for putting the puck in the net and he's one of them.

I hope the Habs resign him.

Yes, any time he stops scoring, the legislature meets and passes legislation that legislates him to score.

A very legitimate use of the legislature's powers.

I really don't understand how anyone could not want the guy? He is clutch and has do e nothing but help the Habs since being here. Probably a top 3 free agent this off season.

Even if he does regress to Ryder 1.0 as you call it, that is still a Ryder food for 20-30 goals.
Mea culpa, mea maximum culpa.

Ryder is much better defensively than I thought he would be. I think he is someone that respects Michel Therrien and he has bought into the Habs' hustling style. I saw a difference after about 4 games.

Could he regress? Anyone can, look at Gaborik, LOL.

But I would be willing to offer $4M times two years, easily.

I'd love to see him back with the habs with a 2 year deal worth 4-4.5 mil $ per year....but let's face it with the year he is having it's obvious a team will be willing to offer more years and more money than us, so unless he takes a "discount" to stay in MTL I don't have much hope of us keeping him

The guy is 7-7 -14 in 14 games with us... while cole is 3-0-3 in 13 games with Dallas.

We need him, he puts the pucks behind the net, thats all that matters.

We don't need to buy a superstar in montreal, we need to grow one like... 11, 27, 76 and sometimes the 31

He'll be looking for a four-year contract or longer. He won't be here next year.

Ryder succeeds with positioning and his shot.

As long as you can get him the puck in his positions, which is really anywhere, he will continue to score.

He's intelligence is underrated. Goal scorers gonna goal score.

Was there any video evidence of the paper airplanes?

What's surprising with him is that I did not remember how big he was physically. He's not easy to counter and take the puck from him because of that. I admit it's not something I noticed when he was with us back in the day but years of watching small players with the Habs trying to fight like mad to do the simplest play, it's refreshing to see someone with actual size doing things easy.

You should visit the Rangers when your moral is low

I was skeptical of this thread at first, I too wasn't the biggest Ryder fan of the world but he impressed me in his second run with the Habs.

I'd take him back for a 2 or 3 year deal at a reasonnable price. The guy knows how to score.

The lockout totally broke Cole's spirit. The man found himself at home and enjoyed it. Tough to motivate yourself for the road after that.
