from Douglas Flynn of NESN,
Michael Ryder, come on down— you’re the next contestant on The Price Is Wrong.
While the Bruins still await the decision from Blake Wheeler’s Tuesday arbitration hearing—which will determine the full extent of their salary cap issues—it is clear that general manager Peter Chiarelli will have to find a way to move out some salary at some point….
So what will become of Ryder? Wheeler’s arbitration decision will open a new window for a buyout, though Chiarelli repeatedly has denied any interest in going that route this summer.
“I know everyone is talking about buying out Ryder,” Chiarelli said back in June. “He had a frustrating year. The year before, what did he score the year before? So I’m not going to buy out him, and nobody else. We need wingers, and we need wingers that can score, and historically, he has done that.”
Chiarelli might reconsider the option now that he’s so tight against the cap, but a buyout would be problematic for several reasons.
