But even if we don't get that, he's still our best hope for goals on the wing for the next several years. You can't win without scoring goals.
I agree that you need to score goals to win, but he detracts SO MUCH from his line when he doesn't score it's so frustrating. I like looking at a team like Buffalo, they can all fly and they don't all score 30 goals, but they all play hard. They make up for their lack of stats with skating hard and playing hard. They let a guy like Satan go for nothing, and replaced him with a guy like Jason Pominville.

Like I said Ryder is better than Dagenais, but not much.
