I don't know if Ryder will ever be a true top six forward in this league, but I really, for the life of me, can't write him off. His whole hockey career he has overcome adversity and proved his critics wrong. He doesn't have top notch skills, but his work ethic and style might just put him on the top lines in his career.

He was a "walk on" on his junior club, he started last year in ECHL, now has found himself on the top line in Montreal. Frankly he is a guy I wouldn't deny, let him develop, go as far as he can because I think he might be a classic overachiever.
