In my mind Ryder's upside is a very good third liner with an outside shot at being a good (but not excellent) 2nd line RW. In a perfect world, I consider Zednik to be a 2nd line RW, who here thinks Ryder as more upside than Zednik ? I sure as hell don't. And if you don't as well, why pin Ryder first line material (or even second line material) ?

Now if you consider that every rookie as a chance at the clader, then yes Ryder does have a chance to win it. But in the real world things are not so simple. At best, I think Ryder as a marginal chance at winning the calder. To tell you the truth, just making it to the ballot would be a MAJOR accomplishment and I'm not even expecting that much. Hainsey got a much better chance to make the ballot (but still very slim).

A lot of people are counting their chicken before they've hatched over here.

I don't see Ryder becoming more than what McPhee, Keane or Skrudland were for us in the past. A good role player that is gonna see 1st line duty given circumstances rather than pure talent. These guys didn't win the Calder ...
Well Mr. Orange man, while I respect your opinion let's just say that you are not even in the ball park with these comments...It's very obvious to anyone who has seen Ryder play that you know nothing about the guy!!

N'importe quoi ! That's got to be the funniest thing I read all day ! Not only are you able to tell me what I know and don't know, but I bet you'd be able to tell me what I hate for breakfast reading only a few more of my posts !

What can I say???...Your reaction confirms my comments about you!!!...You sound like a pretty insecure person to me...well let me make you feel a little more insecure...How are you going to handle it when Ryder plays on the first line with a full roster (i.e. no injuries!).

No one believed in this kid, but Julien always did and now Ryder has proven he can be an NHLer much like he proved he could play Junior and Minor Pro, way to go Ryder I've been there for you since day one and I'll back you till the end, keep making us proud and keep playing your style of game!

My only problem with the guy is his number. 73?!!? what is that?
Yeah what's with that? Having a player with a high jersey number is crazy! Why did they ever give Wayne Gretzky #99?!

Well i thought that Higgins wore #18 in college and #18 is not taken right now (and was not for a looong time for some reason) so why can"t he have it???

I mean Komisarek was (and still is) a rookie last year and he took #8 which is a low #.....

Komisarek was drafted 7th overall in an extremelly talented draft year, they give Komi a little gift, his own number as a rookie. other players... even Hainsey didnt receive his number.. even Ribeiro.. loads of players wont receive their number.
