PLAYER TO WATCH: Ryder. The forward left the Stanley Cup-champion Bruins for a two-year, $7 million deal with Dallas after posting eight goals and nine assists in the playoffs. He had 18 goals and 23 assists in 79 regular-season games, which will help replace the loss of leading scorer Brad Richards, who left as a free agent.
