    IMO this trade confirms that Gionta will not be moved unless we are out of the playoffs at next year's deadline. We need to retain some veteran forwards to do the heavy lifting while the kids develop, and after Kaberle is gone we'll have plenty of cap space.

    Robidas was saying on RDS that Ryder is really fit and in great shape.

    Ryder is prety solid, but he uses his size to protect and shield more than to hit.

    I like this deal for both teams. For us though we get more of a sniper who will definately help the PP, and gain cap space and a 3rd rd pick.

    Cole, he should help Dallas. But after all the talk of retirement and his slow start, his mind being elsewhere (likely for his kids and their future schooling) this makes sense.


    I hope it really works out for us.

    Any cap relief from moving Gionta would probably be offset by issues in the room. With a relatively young team having guys like Gio Plekanec Gorges Prust around is very valuable. Plus Markov in terms of on ice presence.

    Nobody would take Gionta anyway. A smal, slow, expensive non producing player.

    Usually that's the case for guys producing well in their 30's. Maybe cole lost that a bit this year, but no way he has the year he had and score 35 without being well conditionned.

    I like the trade. Cole was declining and still had 2 big years left. Ryder looks pretty good right now and can leave after this season if he or the Habs want.

    Now to get rid of Gionta and Kaberle.

    So rebuilding lasts only a year? i'm not saying they'll both be dealt at the deadline. But i maintain that getting a 2013 2nd round pick for Ryder at the deadline would be make the Cole deal even more interesting. Even tough i like him I'd prefer to give some quality time to the prospects next year than signing Ryder. So why not trading him?

    As for Pleky he's currently at the top of his value. I can see a lot of established teams that'd be interested in his profile. With 3 years left at 5M per he wouldn't be part of a loan type deal. I truly hope for him to be dealt by the end of next year so we can get some young quality return.

    We're certainly not contenders this year, neither will we be next year with Ryder if we sign him. I'm all for trading the Giontas, Plekys to bring some youngers assets and build around the Patchs, Gaclhys, Subbans and co.

    As a hawks fan I come in peace!

    The way I see this,

    Erik Cole was basically having a good time with his family this off season and almost was ready for retirement. ( by the sound bites on his interviews )

    Micheal Ryder is a massive upgrade over a half hearted Erik Cole, he will be a good fit in your line up, as well as the ability to put up the points and rise to the occasion in big games.

    The third round draft pick is like a cherry on top for Montreal in this situation as I'm sure you'll find Cole retiring this upcoming off season.

    I hear the Canadiens have burned ALL videos of Gomez wearing number 11.

    Sucks for the fans who bought a Gallagher 73 t-shirt or jersey (I was going to get one my self!)

    Did you buy a jersey or a t-shirt?
    Honestly though.. its never a good thing to buy a jersey of a rookie player. They nearly always change the number in the second season.

    A t-shirt I can understand, but do people really purchase jerseys that quickly?
