I think meltzers comment is being taken out of context. Bobby Ryan is clearly the better player. His hockey sense, as well as his vision on the ice and production in general has been leaps and bounds better than JVR has been so far in his career. Ryan had a down year while JVR had a slightly up year, but that doesn't take away the fact that if you discount this season as being a fallacy which it likely was in terms if production for some players, Ryan is the better and more dynamic player by a large margin. Plus the fact that he's a hometown boy would likely exclude him from the same criticism that carter and JVR got

Again, I would love Ryan on this team, but not at the expense of what it would take to get him (our 1st+ or Couturier+).
