As mentioned by a few here, Ryan brings a number of things to the table, but two things that no one has mentioned that he brings is heart and the right attitude. Yes, those ARE two important things. You can have all of the talent in the world, but if you don't have the heart and the right attitude to go with them, you're not getting very far. He cares about winnning, he cares about his team and there aren't many players in the collegiate ranks that you'll find who works and sacrifices as much or as hard as Ryan does. Part of what has made Ryan so successful is that he is truly a team-first kind of guy. Individual accolades mean nothing to him if his team aren't a part of them. I cannot even begin to count how many times throughout his college career, where Ryan basically either carried or jump started his team, whether it was in scoring that timely goal, mixing it up with an opposing players or simply giving his teammates a "pep talk".
You just summed up your entire sorry career here in one sentence! If you had a tenth of the heart of Ryan, you'd have made All-American by now! As it is, you just went from third team to the scout team! Get out of here!
