This past season, there were very few collegians that were as good as or better than Ryan, and that includes the myriad of first round picks that played this season.

Personally, I think the Preds did really well with this deal. I know Zidlicky is a good player and all, but I wouldn't underestimate what Ryan can do and bring for the Preds. I think all of you naysayers will be pleasantly surprised. He's a very skilled, multi-dimensional player with a very big heart. He's definitely not a guy you want mad at you on the ice, but he's a heckuva nice guy off of it.
Thanks, Chick. I'm loving the idea someone brought up of a Geoffrion-Wilson-Jones line.
