I agree that he's no Perry or Ovechkin. However, he's a consistent player and very close to some of those guys and I know I might get flamed but Ryan > Sedin. He's younger and I believe that he can be mentioned in the same breath as Sedin. Anyway, it doesn't matter what you think about Ryan being good or bad compared to those guys but the value for Ryan is completely off.
Easy there stud.. Hardly anyone in the NHL has matched the Sedins Production the last 3 years. They are the top tier of nhl talent. Ryan is far below them.
Only slightly below the crosby malkin stamkos group. (only because of there physical gifts not hockey skill)
Well he's no Cam Fowler,the guy who has a career high of 30 assists. Green has a career high of 31 goals. If I were a ducks fan id be pretty interested in anyone who scores considering the recent cup champs stingy defense.
The issue with Green has nothing to do with his offensive capabilities. It has to do with his health.
And Cam Fowler has nothing to do with this. He's heading into his third year at 20 years old, with lots of development and growth in his future. Taking shots at Anaheim players who play no part in this discussion should be beneath you.
Well since Green is the first player to never recover from an injury in the history of sports...maybe we should trade for that damaged goods Crosby then.
Calling me dumb for pointing out a clear stat. Ok. Green is an awesome hockey player and the prices for high end pmd are astronomical. Good luck ducks,because I see the same lottery team only with a year older Selanne and Koivu. I hope Etem lights it up like he did in the Whl.
Is it dumb of me to assume the ducks will be as bad next year? Who are your centers after Gets becomes a ufa? Speaking of him..im assuming he forgot how to score as well. Maybe its better to be injured and not produce then to be overrated and suck.
Green needs to prove he is completely recovered, and that he can stay healthy -first-. The Ducks would not move a player like Ryan for Mike Green until he does that. Whether or not other players return from injury is moot, because there are examples of other players who never get back to where they were before. The Ducks don't -need- to gamble, so why should they?
No, it's not dumb of you to assume the Ducks will be as bad, but it certainly points to a bit of ignorance on your part regarding the Ducks. As an example, your snarky remark that Getzlaf forgot how to score. He fully acknowledges he had a poor season, and they were well below his averages. There were a number of reasons the Ducks finished where they did. Injuries to Visnovsky and Lydman, for example, who were expected to be Anaheim's top pairing. Hiller's nightmarish first half of the season, trying to get back into the swing of things after his vertigo issues. I could keep going, but the summary is that the Ducks underperformed as a team.
If I'm looking ahead into the next season, I'm not just going to look at the past season and assume it will be the same, especially when considering injuries, or when we're looking at seasons which were anomalies for some of these players, when you look at their career averages. If a player has four straight seasons where he produces a point per game, or more, but one subpar season where he doesn't, why should we assume the one subpar season is the new trend for him? That is incredibly short-sighted, and just plain foolish.
Yes and Daniel has 156 assists to ryans 92.. in 18 less games. How exactly is this proving your point?
My point was it was ridiculous to say Ryan was as good as Sedin. I was merely pointing out that they've scored the same number of goals, which was an odd coincidence. The last comment was clearly saying that homers would say the amount of difference on the top power plays would mean Ryan was a better goal scorer. Needlessly defensive much?
