Over Lehtinen's age 32 and age 33 seasons he scored a combined 59 goals. You can't get a perfect comparison to Ryder since Lehtinen's age 31 season was wasted by the lockout, but if Ryder scores the same amount over the span of this contract (his age 31 and 32 seasons) you have to consider it a big success.
