It goes beyond Ryder, why boo Hossa, or Crosby etc??? Some fans will boo Streit and Sundin (if he comes back) as well.

I get boooing players who slighted the Habs or who did something to irritate the fan base, but Ryder was always a classy guy who never complained about being benched and led us in goals for a couple of years. I for one appreciate and acknowledge his contributions and applaud him it and will not boo, unless he scores a goal against us.
Totally agree and really don't understand. I liked Ryder and felt really bad for him when he could not find his groove last season. The guy played some great hockey for us no need to boo him. If people boo Huet, they there is really no hope for some Habs fans.
