What would you guys pay for a guy like Michael Ryder?

If the Stars can get a top prospect and a pick for him, then I'd pull the trigger. He has been good this year, and I think his value on the market is higher than it should be.

It would help us out a bit financially for the ensuing offseason too. I hope we can get some big time free agents. I'm not sure if we can actually land a few of them though. It'd be cool to pry Duchene away from the Avs, but he's not worth losing 4 first round picks.

Benn-Duchene-Eriksson on the PP would be pretty freaking legit though. Wow.

Nobody's going to want to be on the hook for 3.5 mil for Michael Ryder next year.

Unless the Stars take salary back I doubt any team would be interested. Too much of an enigma.

Meh, I'm not sure about that. 30 goals, 60 points, a right handed shot, and good defensive play makes $3.5 million sound appropriate.

If nobody wants him for that much, then Stars will gladly keep him.

If we stick with Morrow, Ribs, and Ryder for next season, we'll have a TON of money coming off of the books for the 2013 offseason.

Hamrlik may be moved, but I'm not sure of any other players. Haven't heard their name come up a lot in trade rumors.


I'd have to imagine Knuble is on the move. He's been a healthy scratch for a majority of the games since the beginning of the month.

Washington won't get much for him though.

I've heard the Bruins could be in on Ryder. I'll pass. I think we could use the $3.5M better. At a lower hit though, I'd gladly take his elevated play in the spring and the lift it'd give our locker room.

Two more Caps who could be moved today: Mike Knuble and Alex Semin, Semin being the less likely of the two to move.

Ryder going back to Boston would be perfect, but I'm not sure what the Stars could get in return that we would like.

Also Knuble, he's rarely been used right since Hunter took over. A contender will like his experience and his game is perfectly suited for the playoffs. Also , Backstrom put on IR so the Caps should be really in for a C , no way they can compete with Marcus Johansson and Mathieu Perreault as their top centremen.

No thank you he sleep walks threw the regular season. Right when hes on the verge of being benched he scores 2 goal scorer goals. Id rather trade for someone else

The two Montreal-Nashville trades boil down to this:

Montreal gets: Blake Geoffrion, Robert Slaney, Nashville 2nd round picks in 2012 and 2013

Nashville gets: Hal Gill and Andrei Kostitsyn

I say Montreal's the winner here. You have to think Gauthier dealt them thinking he wouldn't re-sign either of them. Extra draft capital and a good forward prospect is a coup.
