Ok, I need to say this:  If a player like Ryder could be sent to the AHL, then why did PC trade Sturm.  If the team is going to play, "rope a dope" hockey and win a point at time to make the playoffs, then why not sit Mr. Ryder in the minors.  If his contract is picked up on waviers, bye bye.  Meanwhile I think LA made the steal of the century, why? PC saved JJ 3.5 million. Yahoo sounds like the Schaefer buyout!
