So we all know that Micheal Ryder is out of town for sure by Feb 26th. He’s had a less than stellar year with a mere 8 goals and 18 points. What happened to the guy who scored 25, 30 and another 30 goals the past 3 years ?
It’s easy to blame the guy for his lack lustre year but lets keep in mind all the factors bearing in his downward spiral.
As everyone Knows Ryder has been rumored o be out of Montreal for a long time now. On Sunday, he showed up for the game, and was simply told not to bother dressing, packed his bags, and went up to the dressing room. He needs a change of scenery like Mike Ribiero. He too can be a top line forward in this league but not in Montreal. This is the biggest trade rumor right now in Montreal:
The Canadiens lost 5-3 to the Rangers last night in a game were they were up 3-0 with 10 minutes left in the 2nd. It is clear they need more offence and it appears that Bob Gainey will make a deal.
RDS has reported that the Canadiens have sent Halak back to Hamilton. With the Habs having to play the Sens twice this week, as well as the leafs, are they about to call Carey price back to the NHL to relieve some pressure from Huet?
After marrying a girl from Montreal and saying that he wanted to play in the eastern conference and wanted a shot at the cup could Forsberg suit up for the Canadiens?
I am a huge Habs fan and right now the team is sitting in fourth place in the East 5 pts back of Ottawa for first overall.
So alot of people are saying the Canadiens should trade Koivu this year or next cause he’s not what we need. Well check this out.
The Montreal Canadians have surprised everyone this year and are likely to continue to do so. Still they are not considered cup contenders and the only way they could be is to pickup a couple key players and fill some holes at the same time. The problem is that they are often out-classed when playing the teams with franchise players like Jarg and Spezza but that could change with a couple serious moves.
The trade deadline is quickly approaching, and many Habs fans are wondering, what will Bob Gainey do? The question we should be asking is, what should Bob Gainey be doing.
The short answer: Be a limited buyer…
When was the last time the Montreal Canadiens were ranked 2nd in points in the east…It’s been a hell of a long time. So what do the Habs need to remain contenders in the East ? I would say a power forward and a right handed D-man. So how bout this…
