I really hope Ryder does well, but i'm not going to get my expectations very high from the preseason. I"ll wait and see hw well he does against the real competition of the reg. season before I start getting overly excited about things.
In the same manner, some players didn't perform well at all during pre-season and were excellent during regular season.

Take Markov for example, he was sidelined during pre-season for muscle spasms... some people were talking about his less-than-average physical condition (cigarettes blablabla). I remember Bergeron saying on 110%: "Markov?!? Forget about him. He's no good. Hainsey is our #1 LD, not next year, not tomorrow, RIGHT NOW."
