Yea well take Ryder two years ago. He was on the Habs' first line ands we did not have much of a second line. So he and Koivu and Higgins were the first line had to take the team on their back. In Boston there's David Krejci, Milan Lucic, Mark Savard, Phil Kessell, Patrice Bergeron etc...He doesn't have to be "the" guy. Ryder doesn't have the personality of a leader. And that's fine. But in Montreal a few years ago he was exposed. And last year we had this speedy team and the European Habs style he was not at ease in that, sometime he couldn't keep up with the other guys. Boston has more of a position trapping style and it's easier for a guy like that than on a mad skating team. He just do his job, get in front of the net and act like the sniper that he is.
