Ryder reaches 20 goal mark in first 3 seasons

Congrats to Ryder, I know he has had his problems defensively this year, but he seems to have found his groove in the last 3 games.

Quote:
A trio of 20s: The Canadiens have won three straight and Michael Ryder has had a hand in all of them, scoring in all three games. In beating Tomas Vokoun in the opening period Thursday night, Ryder, who has picked up six points in his last three contests, became the first forward since Claude Lemieux to reach the 20-goal mark in his first three NHL seasons. From 1986 to 1989, Lemieux finished with 27, 31 and 29 goals.

Trade him while he's hot.

Ryder's toe drag move worked against the likes of Columbus (who the Habs hadn't played in 3 years) and, if I recall correctly, Alex Semin playing defence on a power play.

It's two of the few times it's worked all season - not going to get away with it in the division too often down the stretch I don't think. Eastern conference dmen have him figured out from what I've seen; I know I do.

I wouldn't hesitate to deal him if you can get a 20+-goal scorer in return. That's the tough part.

With just under 20 games to go, there is still a chance he could hit the 25 goal mak again, which would mean he's scored 25-30-25 in his first three years!

Also, Higgins and Koivu are knocking on the 20 goal plateau - when was the last time we had four 20 goal scorers?

Higgins and Koivu will most likely end the season with 20 goals at least to their names.

Higgins is also on pace to score 20 goals in each of his first 3 seasons. He scored 23 goals in his first season last year, and is on pace to score 20 in his second season. He stands at 16 goals right now despite only having played in 44 games.
