As per the Journal de Montreal, Michael Ryder is done in Montreal. Various sources since, on Twitter and radio, have cited his agent for the news, but it's no surprise to anyone who watched the Habs falter in the playofs - it was as if Ryder had left Montreal as soon as the regular season ended.  Ryder's departure means the Habs will be in the market for a top line winger, and they'll have a decent chunk of change to spend, as re-signing Ryder would surely have cost $4-$5 million.  No other major news of late from the Canadiens beat, as most fans still lick their wounds, muttering siltently of Ottawa. Perhaps the most practical question in accordance with Ryder leaving: does Brendan Gallagher get his #73 back?
