Even if Ryan were grittier, its not enough to make up for the fact that Phil Kessel is a superior offensive weapon. Ryan seems to have stagnated at 60-70 point player while Kessel has evolved into a PPG player capable of scoring goals, or drawing defenders and making plays for his teammates. I have no doubt Ryan will have a great statistical season if he plays with a healthy Spezza all year but hes the type of player that needs to play with a superior player like Spezza to elevate his point totals to around the PPG mark. Otherwise hes a 30+ goal, 60-70 point guy, which isn't bad at all.
