Bring Back Michael Ryder!!!


Now that the Bruins have freed themselves from the Tim Thomas contract, rumors seem to be swirling around the Bruins looking for another forward. I've read names like Stephen Weiss and Bobby Ryan possibly coming to Boston on a few websites, but I say bring back Michael Ryder. Ryder's contract ends this year with the Stars, and I'm gonna guess the Stars won't be making the playoffs this year. They're an aging team, so its possible they will be moving into a rebuilding stage following this season, so why not go after Ryder. His contract of 3.5 million is reasonable, and he was well liked in the B's dressing room (or so I've heard). Also, He knows Julien's system as he has played for him on a number of different teams. On top of this, there is no question that Ryder played a huge roll in the 2011 playoffs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCWpqR--u-I) and I think the Kelly / Peverley line hasn't been the same without him. No offense to Chris Bourque, but I don't think he's capable of the numbers Ryder can put up.
