That said, he will never be better than Ryan in my opinion.

That's not what's being argued here though.

We're arguing whether or not a 25-year-old 60-65 point forward is worth a 22-year-old 50 point forward, a 26-year-old two-way top 4 defenseman, and a 1st round pick; a package many Anaheim fans scoffed at being a "joke" offer.
If Ryan were from, say...Texas, I highly doubt anybody here would be throwing these insane offers out for him.

That's a pretty terrible example, all things considered.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
