There's nothing one-dimensional about Michael Ryder, which makes it that more easy for management to keep him.
Totally True, Ryder brings a complete game to the table. Besides, I want a hard working and physical team. Basically, a team with Character. Guys like Ryder, Ward, Bégin and Langdon bring exactly that. The question is can all of the above be on the roster once injuries trim down?
In my mind, Ryder is set for a spot on the roster come opening night. Otherwise, it will be a travesty.
