I really don't feel a need to thank Ryder. He was so disapointing, you won't see Bonk, Smolinsky, Huet get booed... (well I hope)
But the way Ryder played and is attitude of last year I think thanking him would have been a mistake...
Do you think Theo won't get tease... he will, even if he won a Vezina and hart for us...
I just don't know why people are waiting for every single opportunity to say our fans are dumb
One thing about HF Boards, it really paints a picture for you of the fanbases for each club, and I have to say, it's been a real eye-opener here in terms of Canadiens fans.
Sure, there's lots of passionate fans, but I'm constantly amazed at how many truly clueless fans there are here as well.
To dismiss the efforts of Michael Ryder, who worked his way through the clubs system, played well in the American league then busted his ass and made the team out of camp when nobody expected him to do so, then promptly became a 30-goal scorer in the NHL is nothing short of ignorant.
I would seriously call into question your knowledge of the game and of the Canadiens if you have an issue with his time here in Montreal. And what exactly was your issue with his "attitude" last year? I'd love to hear this one.
By the way, the last sentence of your post couldn't be more ironic.
