I agree, congrats! As for the lack of hats.... I think we kinda forgot the tradition... it doesn't happen that often.
I was going to write a long rant about Ryder last week, about how he has extreme tunnel vision as soon as he touches the puck, that playing on his line must suck- as soon as he gets the puck, might as well go for a line change... I guess it would only garner flames now
What always amazes me is the lack of wind up, but incredible speed he generates on his shots.
If ryder scores one goal in every 3 games hes going to end up with 33 goals. What I love about ryder is that he makes it look so easy. When you look at ryder puting one in top shelf like he does you wonder why players who have 6 years experience like zednik strugle or players that have so much speed like bulis cant become a natural goal scorer.
If we make the playoffs ryder has got to play especialy on the power play on that right side. It would be a waste of weapon if the coaches decide to put him on the bench because of his lack of experience. Hes so dangerous when he puts himself on the side of the net waiting for a one timer.
and who would you pick between the two if it was at all possible?
Sorry for derailing the thread
If it werent for the injuries, I'd go with Havlat by a comfortable margin, he's got the talent to be a 100 point man in this NHL. But the thing is, when Ryder starts working hard like his rookie season, he's the prototypical forward. He's everything you want in a hockey player. I think it depends on the needs of the team. We have Kovalev filling in for Havlat I'd say. I think the question would be better between those two.
