Would you believe that I tried to include this arguement on top of statistical merit a couple of days ago (in the Ryder for Calder thread), and no one seemed impressed? Everyone was all about "Raycroft is the Bruins MVP, etc", and I partially agreed with that. Some of them didn't even think Ryder was close to him in merit. I guess you'd agree that Ryder (on top of his statistical prowess) has impressive enough intangibles to take into consideration.
