HABS TRADE COLE FOR RYDER
This just in, the Montreal Canadiens have traded forward Eric Cole to the Dallas Stars for Michael Ryder and a draft pick. Michael Ryder spent 4 seasons with Montreal (2003-2008) and had 207 points in 314 Regular Season games. Michael Ryder was drafted 2016th overall in 1998 by the Habs. So far this season Ryder has 6 goals and 8 assists in 19 games with the Stars. Michale Ryder is expected to make his Habs debut tomorrow night in Montreal against the Leafs.
Eric Cole spent just 1 and a half seasons with the Habs (2011-2013). In the 2011-12 season, Eric Cole was the Habs best forward, he had a career high 35 goals and 26 assists in 82 games. But this season hes off to a slow start, in 19 games he has just 3 goals and 3 assists... That was the ultimate reason for the trade along with a few rumors that have been surfacing regarding Coles relationships with his teammates. "Salut Erik. Gonna miss ya brother," Carey Price said on Twitter.
