Wheeler, Callahan, Brown, Pacioretty, Stastny, and Stepan are all not as good as Ryan offensively, at least this year.

Dustin Brown has like 12 points in 40 games. He got in because he's a captain I think. Wheeler is soft and one dimensional, though pretty good at what he does.

I guess most of those guys would be better 4th liners, but Ryan should be in the top 6 so that's not as important. The 4 best wings on that team would be Kane, Kessel, Ryan, and Parise.

A Ryan-Pavelski-Kane line would be so awesome to see. Ryan and Joe getting fed by one of the best playmakers in hockey.

I have no problem with Ryan missing the Olympics. Should get him pumped for the rest of the season.

"Not intense. That word is not in his vocabulary. It's never going to be in his vocabulary. He can't spell intense." - Burke on Bobby Ryan

Burke really needs to just shut the **** up. He is making himself looking like an ignorant *******.

Yep, and he gets some rest, but Burke's quote is still pretty annoying.

I am not just saying this because I am a fan of Bobby Ryan but I can't believe it's kosher for GM's of other teams to stand up and outright slam opposing players like that. Cool, you didn't select Bobby Ryan. How about shutting the **** up?

Burke also said on the Ryan story that it was a pick he'd be proud of for a very long time.

Here's a bit from that ESPN article (seriously go read it, it's fascinating)

Holmgren suggests the coaches have to decide if Ryan is going to be an integral part of the power-play groups, and if so, he needs to be pushed ahead. But if not, maybe they should be looking at two more well-rounded players.

"I agree," Poile says.

Burke points out that Poile has included the coaches more than he did when he occupied the GM position in Vancouver four years before. It's good, but, he adds, "I think coaches see snapshots, and I think GMs watch the whole movie."

"I think we have to know what we're taking with Bobby," says Burke, who had him in Anaheim when the Ducks won the Stanley Cup in 2007.

"He's a passive guy," Burke says. And over 82 games, yes, Saad and or Pacioretty might be more attractive than Ryan. But Ryan's a game-breaker.

"He is not intense. That word is not in his vocabulary," Burke says. "It's never going to be in his vocabulary. He can't spell intense."

If he's not going to be put in a role in which he can score an important goal, use his skills as a sniper, he shouldn't go, Burke says.

"Is everybody really happy with our speed up front," Poile asks.

There is a pause.

"I don't think it's a fast team," Tallon notes.

Ryan doesn't add to the speed quotient, so do these last two spots need to be filled with speed guys? And if there are injuries, which of these guys are more compatible, more able to move up the roster to fill in more demanding roles?

Pacioretty and Saad are both better 60-minute players, Burke says, "But neither can do what Bobby can do."

Since he plays for the Leafs & gets less points, JVR qualifies

It's an absolute joke. I didn't think it could get any easier to hate team USA, but it sure didn't take long for that to change. Hope they have an absolutely abysmal powerplay.

Crosby's tendencies are to skate around pylons like Brooks Orpik.

The Sens are one of my favorite teams outside of the Bruins, and I've gotten to watch Ryan a lot more since he became a Senator. He's been one of my favorite players for a while, and although he's been a Bruin killer, he's vastly improved, and he's left off the team for it.

Absolutely ridiculous. Maybe it's for the better for you guys, he gets a nice break. A lot of questionable decisions by the staff.

Ya I don't have a problem with the JVR selection.

But literally every American on the main boards is having a WTF moment about Yandle, Ryan, and one or both Johnsons.
