Now his accuracy could improve next year but his inability to get his shot off how will he improve that, that part really boggled my mind. Obviously a goalscorer needs a quick release so will he get that back?
The big problem in Montreal is the lack of centemen depth compared to the Bruins:
Savard-Bergeron-Krejci beats anything the Habs have(Koivu-Plekanek-noname) and I did not even mention Kessel who also plays center and wing at times.
There are enough excellent setup centermen for Ryder to score anywhere from 30 to 40 goals next season.
Savard is top-15 in the NHL on that regard and Bergeron is just as good.
There is nobody that good in Montreal.
