This guy is dead weight & has to go!! He plays with no heart, is lazy & takes untimely penalties. His lazy penalty last night was turning point in game. Maybe we should have kept Sturm & traded Ryder.

As long as Julien is coach, Ryder is going nowhere.
If Julien is back to coach the bruins next year, expect Ryder to be re-signed in the off-season for 2 to 2.5 M.
If Ryder does not get re-signed, I will take that as a sign that Julien's days as coach, are coming to an end.

Ryder is a secondary scorer, and works the PP.. He has done both of those well this season.. His play has little to do with how the bruins are playing.. Beating a dead horse..

Who is going to take him...? That has been the question for the past two years. Also, who would give up a piece for him? Would we better giving him up for a pick like Sturm? I don't think so. He adds depth, that is all. Only trade him if someone makes a decent offer or will give an insanely high draft pick for him. If not, ride Ryder out and hope he contributes in April going forward.

Ryder had 16:57 in TOI last night, 3rd most among Bruins forwards, trailing only Bergeron and Recchi. The coach hasn't lost faith in the player.

Ryder and Recchi are part of this team until April.
Forget all this talk of trading them or demoting them.
Chiarelli's hands are tied even IF he wanted to deal someone. Everytime he calls for a trade, everyone asks about the TOR pick, or Joe Colbourne. He can't make a trade. Forget it. Forget it. Forget it.

I heard that they wanted to trade Ryder but no one would take him. Then we had to give Sturm away for nothing.

Ryder has nothing to do with how the team is playing? He's definitely a part of the biggest problem. His lack of consistency and desire is reflective of the team's biggest problem: consistency

He's fine for a second line player.

Ryder stays for remaining season ride out his contract. CJ will stay for season then he will get the axe and Bruins can get a young coach ie If Muller was available he would be the one to pursue(offer him lots of money he can't say no). If you watch the time out last night Muller did all play making. I despise the Habs but Muller was good player and will make a great coach.
For who should go before deadline is Savard's contract he is willing to go to Ottawa then just trade him for Regin or picks forget about Gonchar (will end up out west before deadline) stay away from aging players the Bruins have the roster for future if we get the right coach. Thomas is playing net but is not our future goalie Rask is our future goalie. If a team is looking for a goalie and will want Thomas then trade him. Back up and reliable goalies we can get easily now.
Ference contract can be dealt before deadline.If the Bruins can get rid of these 3 contracts will give cap space for future players to be signed.
Our team looks great for the future (with providence players developing we can still look at some solid FA agents this summer )
Seguin Bergy Krejci Lucic Horton Wheels Caron Marchand (Paille Campbell Thornton for 4th line)
Kampner Boychuk Mcquaid Chara Sieds Stuart
RaskRealistically if and when we make the playoffs this spring we probably have 50/50 shot to go far without Savard
Ferrence and Thomas take a look at last years run we choke but hey why not the bruins has nothing to lose.

I think he's fine as a 3rd line player with 3rd line player salary.
