If the habs hadnt missed about a gazillion scoring opportunities the way they did, we wouldnt even be in this conversation.

And when Kovalev did the wrap-around, man...if the puck hadnt hit the side of the net, that was in. many missed chances....all the lucky bounces went Carolina's way...all four games. it's really crappy...
I dont think Ryder does this because he thinks he's kovalev.

I think that although ryder had a 30 goal season, he never really looked comfortable for a long period of time this season.

I think its just a case of a player putting too much pressure on himself and thus, trying to do everything by himself.

With more experience, I believe Ryder will make better decisions.

In my view, Ryder showed alot of character and competitiveness in these playoffs and I was generally happy with his effort. We should hang on to him.
