3 pts in 3 games is a great way to start your career, but that's exactly what it is... A start.

I would stay off the "Ryder for calder" bandwagon for at least... 2-3 more games :p

P.S. what do you think would have happened if Marcel Hossa scored those 5 in 5 at the BEGINNING of last season?

Your points are all very good and all very well taken...But I'm merely pointing out how far off alot of people were about Ryder to date...I totally agree with you that it is "A start" and that we should jump off the "Ryder for calder" bandwagon...All that I'm willing to predict right now is that the chances look good (with no gaurantees) for Ryder to have a long and successful NHL career, the extent of which can only be determined by time...But I base my predictions on solid facts and observations from having followed Ryder very closely over a 5 year period which began with his 2nd year of major junior in the "Q"...CHEERS!!!
