That definitely has influenced his production... Look at the numbers Heatley was able to put up in Ottawa playing alongside Spezza and Alfie... Back to back 50 goal 100+ point seasons....
I don't think Ryan is necessarily a 35 goal / 70+ point player if he was playing for the Rangers... We would never field a line comparable to the Ryan/Getzlaf/Perry combo... Even with Richards & Gaborik in the mix I don't think you would ever see the Rangers stick their 3 best forwards on the same line, we don't have the depth to really get by doing that (nor did the Ducks).... I would picture Ryan as a 30 goal / 60-65 point player for the Rangers giving our roster make-up....
