Ryder an Option/Update on Soderberg
KPD of the Globe reports Michael Ryder could be an alternative to Marian Hossa, citing the connection with Claude Julien, his relative youth, 28, and his former back to back 30 goal seasons.
Matt's Take: It doesn't matter, as most Bruins fans would be bummed without Hossa, so whatever other moves are secondary. Ryder would be a decent fit, but I don't think he possesses the skills to really help this offense out, I think he is more of just another guy like a Kobasew or Murray.
He also goes on to say that Soderberg, according to Chiarelli, WILL play in either the AHL or NHL. His deal with Malmo of Sweden was just incase Boston did not want him in Providence or Boston, so that is good news.
