We have all seen M.Ryder for 2 years now.
The Good - He hits the net, has a good shot, he comes to play.He is a finisher.
The Bad- Average speed- his defence needs work- he is well below average at carring the puck- can't beat his grandmother one on one. Does not create chances for others.
Ryder got 30 goals but he played on the top 2 lines and played on most powerplays. almost anyone that gets that quality ice time would have got 20 goals. Ryder is in real danger to be pushed off this ice time with Prez or Kost or UFA. If he goes down to the 3rd line his production will fall to 20 goals. So with a few defects and 20 goals, what is he realy worth?
Current value is high due to his 30 goals but that's as good as it gets for Ryder. As soon as either Prez or Kost have a breakout year , Ryder will lose much of his quality ice time.
