That sure helped us a lot in the playoffs now did it? I'd take players like Gallagher, even though he doesn't have half the goal scoring talent Ryder has, instead of a soft perimeter goal scorer who disappear when the going gets tough.
I think too many of us are putting wayyyy too much emphasis on five very short playoff games. Ryder did nothing, neither did Desharnais for that matter. But both players are more valuable than those games show.
