Your first statement is correct. However, I was just making an exaggerated joke as Ryan's very good but he's not untouchable (unless you and I have different definitions of untouchable). IMO, there's only a select few in the NHL that have the "untouchable" tag. Some are veteran leaders who did great things for their team over the years (e.g., The Selannes, Brodeurs, and Sakics) and others are the current elite (e.g., A.O. and Crosby; I hesitate to put Malkin here despite him being an elite player). As Ryan doesn't fulfill either criterion, he's not untouchable.

P.S. Interestingly enough, I've seen Ryan play before.
