Ryan White

Does he have what it takes to stay in the league?
So far he's made some dumb plays and cannot keep up with the speed.
We need to deal him for a pick.

White is what this team needs. I trade YOU for a pick.

dime a dozen player, plus he's on a short lease and can't really do what he's good at. He seems completely useless atm.

I've been thinking White has been very effective in his role since he found discipline. I'm almost wishing for a bit more of wild-White, though. I like him as a 4th liner.

Good honest hardworking player, maybe he is "dime a dozen" skill wise, but team's need players like White. Exactly the type of fourth liner that good teams have.

Therrien must have told him not to do anything or else we would be the losers tonight.

no reason to get a pick when he would only fetch a 3rd rounder and we have like 3 2nd rounders.

I think he's looked fine since returning.

he's playing smart but we miss his edginess. he's clearly afraid to take a penalty and it shows. we could've used the crazy white tonight

He'd be much better on the wing. The only thing worth keeping him at C for is he can win faceoffs at a decent rate.

White is good for what he is...a steady 4th liner who is all about playing hard and sticking up for his teammates! He is needed, I agree!

Useless player IMO. He wanted to play tough at the start of the season but realized he sucked at it. He's also completely useless in the offensive zone. I'd rather have Nokelainen as the 4th line center.

You don't think maybe he was advised to tone it down or he'd be back in Hamilton after costing the Habs a couple points?

He's a young player asked to play centre and anchor a fourth line with more responsibility than usual. Also a bit tentative after he a couple of bad penalties. It's a learning curve. Leave White alone, good hardworking young player who will fight and stick up for anyone on his team. The edge will come back, don't worry. Ryan White is a beauty. I guarantee you every member of the team loves having this guy on their team.

I didn't think he looked particularly good tonight, and I don't remember anything about yesterday, much less the game but since he's been re-inserted back into the line up I thought he's been a very effective 4th line center

Agreed. Always been a fan of him. I find him to be more talented than Moen or Armstrong. He can pass and control the puck a little better and overall plays a more well-rounded game.

I think people tend to overrate the contribution of fourth liners. He's exactly what we need: someone to rattle the opponent, who's reliable defensively and who can win some faceoffs. Nothing to write home about, but we have three other lines to carry this team anyway.

He sucked at it? White is awesome when he plays a gritty game. Right now he's a dime a dozan for the simple fact that he toned down too much on the rough stuff. He needs to find a middle ground between Mathieu Darche and going bat**** crazy when somebody like Steve Ott checks him.

He made a few dumb plays early on but he's played very well since the Bourque injury.

People missed or keep forgetting that White went after Ott because Ott had a marginal play on Gionta earlier that shift... I felt Ott should have got a 2 as well, which would have drastically changed that whole story.

wtf are you on? Guys like Nokie dont belong on 4th lines. This is hockey, and 4th lines are meant for energy and toughness.

Hey, White did the right thing there. Remember when Greg Stewart jumped Ott back when he was playing for Dallas?? Ott was running around..and Stewart attacked him. The guys appreciate that and everyone here did too only cuz it didnt "cost" us a game..had the Habs won that game against Buffalo everyone here would be praising White.

White fits the 4th line perfectly. He's not a great skater, not a great shot, but he grinds it out and is there to give a strong hit when needed, or drop 'em to spark energy.

Right now this team needs him, as long as he contains himself. A 4th line should strictly be comprised of tough grinders (who can still play), and who can scrap when needed. Moen, White, and Armstrong make a great fourth line.

I'd rather have a guy on the 4th line who knows his role, as opposed to sticking a talented player on the 4th line who won't excel.

Pretty effective 4th liner who is still trying to find the fine line between being constructive and deconstructive. I have no qualms about the way he's playing his role right now, but there's still room for him to get closer to the edge, without falling off. It also seems to me that he's improved on faceoffs since he came back in the lineup. Not totally sure, though.
