What kind of potential does Ryder have??

he's one of the late bloomer but was unbelievable last year, and is coming up strong this early season so who does he compare to what kind of potential does he have, he's reached top level at every league he's played considering he wasn't considered top prospect just two year's ago does he have enough to make as top six on consistent basis for habs??

Very high end 3rd liner...

40-50 pts at his best, Hard worker and energy player that can play good D and can hit hard.

He will get 35-40 pts most of the tie IMO.

Seeing what he already did in the NHL, I may be wrog, but I really think he is a little bit over is capacities right now...

I hope I'm wrong and that Jason Ward is roght.

The only game I've seen of his was the leafs opener and he was the best player on the ice. I like the way he plays, but I'm not sure if he has the hands to finish which might hold him back from being great top liner.

Not to mention Saku Koivu, who during camp said something along the lines of "Ryder has 1st line player written all over him".

I'm not sure what kind of career Ryder is going to have in the NHL, but I do think that his upside is quite high. He's a late bloomer who really seems to be developing by the day.

Players like Ward and Ryder are exactly the type of players the Habs need. Pleased to see them working with their "own" material and finding success.

When Saku comes back I'd like to see if Ryder could find some chemistry with him. If he does it might give him the first line duty already.

I've seen Ryder play twice live thus far this season and once on TV, and in each game he was arguably the best player on the ice.

And going into this season, I have to admit I never thought he would amount to a scoring line forward, as I was never that impressed with his potential when he played in Hull.

But he changed my opnion of him without question.

Unless what I saw was an anomoly (which I don't believe given it was three games), this guy should be a scoring line forward with out question. He is the most impressive young forward on the Habs in my opinion. Better than Hossa, Ward, Ribiero or anyone else (age notwithstanding of course).

The guy simply creates scoring chances for himself, and seems to really have a nifty release on his shot (and no how to position himself to get it off).

He is the most pleasantly surprising player I have seen all year. I don't see any reason he can't be a 20-25 goal scorer, and with the right linemates (Hello Saku...), maybe more.

Great comments, this kid keeps coming at you with a never say never attitude. Put a hurdle in front of him and he'll jump it and ask you for another, whatever he does won't surprise me...I think he could be a legit Power Forward with an outside chance of becoming a 30 goal scorer, he get's a lot of shots...as long as he gets quality ice time and plays with quality players he will keep improving and amazing the fans and the critics.
