Words can't express how much I'm happy to see Ryder back, always liked him. I don't remember the last time I was this happy about a move...sure helps forget a little bit the 2009 summer where all my favorite player got let go for nothing.
Ryder was one of my favorites...now trade Gionta for Koivu!i
Bergevin sure is decisive. My first reaction was to think the Habs were robbed because Cole is biggger, stronger, and faster. On second thought it seems like a good idea. The 3rd rounder the Habs picked up gives them (so far) one 1st, three 2nds. and two 3rds in the 2013 draft. If they also get picks for Weber and and Kaberle, Timmins would have a lot of fun in June and Bergevin would have a lot of flexibility in going after free agents as well as in re-signing roster players and keeping under the cap. Unless he's traded again Cole won't come back to haunt the Habs. Also, Ryder is outscoring Cole so far.
