Ryder Or Zetterburg

Hey guys i saw a poll in the hockey future board and thought id post the same one here.
putting all bias aside who would you rather have in our uniform.


henrik zetterberg: HT: 5-11 WT: 176 AGE: 23
GP: 130 G: 36 A: 45 PTS: 81
CAREER STATS PLAYING IN DETROIT.
Small stature, crafty playmaker with above avarage hockey sense, decent in his own zone, great talent. finesse player.
position: LW/C

michael ryder: HT: 6-1 WT: 195 AGE: 23
GP: 76 G: 22 A: 35 PTS: 57
CAREER STATS PLAYING IN MONTREAL.
Great shot, excels in tight checking games, has great defensive awarness, future powerforward.
position: LW/C/RW (Can play all three forwards positions; Is extremely versatile.)

heres some little info i posted in that poll.
we all know what ryder brings, and i havnt caught too many games where zetterburg played(i think he waz out with a broken leg at the time)

i would easily take Ryder over Zetterburg.
what about you guyz???

Definitely Ryder. Bigger , More physical . And hopefully will still be getting better for some time. I love Zetterberg from what I've seen but we are talking about the possible Calder cup winner here in Montreal at the moment. Ryder is the type of player we've needed for a long time. A guy who can hold the puck and take the HITS while still getting off a quality shot.

Thats tough. Zetterburg has more potential and is younger, so id have to go with him.

It also depends on some other things. If our team had more size up front-Zetterburg, but since we are small up front-Ryder is what we currently need!

I didn't vote because I don't think either player is necessarily better than the other. But I firmly believe that Ryder is better suited to fill the HABS needs .

This one is easy. You are asking who IS better. Of course at this point Ryder is better.

Both are good players, but I'd choose Ryder all the way. I think that he is a mini-version of Shanahan. Great shot, def awarness, can check and good size (not as big as Shanny tho). He has a lot of similarities with Shanny! I always wanted this kind of players in MTL and finally, we have one now.

I voted Zetterberg, but I'd rather have Ryder in the lineup since he's what we need.

actualy they're the same age.
and we saw with ryder potential mean nothing to him, nobody saw him "potentialy" playing the way he does, and in his first year mind you.

hi

It's too hard to judge, they are totally different players and are wicked at what they do.

This has nothing to do with the Leafs.

Zetterberg is a Red Wing.

In terms of potential, it's not even close.

Ryder has Gary Roberts potential... Zetterberg has Steve Yzerman potential.

It's not even close.

Why ?

Just because Zetterberg plays with the REd Wings? He had done nothing amazing in his first two seasons in the NHL. While Ryder is going to come close to scoring 70 points in his rookie season on the Montreal Canadiens not the Detroit Red Wings. Zetterberg is over hyped simply because he wears that jersey and everyone thinks just because the Red Wings drafted him he is some amazing player.

Ryder has a better shot, is bigger, plays with more passion, scores more PPG's, is probably faster.

IMO its the other way around...

And let me ask you one more question....put all things aside. If you could take either player to play on your Leafs who would you choose?

its not all about potential.
thats a little far fetched to say zetterburg has steve yzermam potential.
anybody who has steve yzerman potential would have better stats then 81 pts in 130 career games. and already had a broken leg. at the age of 23

what was alexandre daigle potential when he was drafted ? and Kim Johnson who was the last guy drafted ? and Chad Kilger ? ... Potential means absolutely NOTHING , it's the numbers that you are putting on that counts , bottom line. We could talk all day about potential and comparison

Ryder last year was a nobody and people though (like me) that he had no potential , and look what he is doing this year !

Ryder 1st year : 57 point in 72 games

Zetterberg 1st year : 44 points in 79 games

NOT EVEN CLOSE ?? LOL

Depends if I'm looking for a playmaker or a sniper, because overall it's a wash IMO. Zetterberg has one more NHL year under his belt, though (and a loss to Belarus at Salt Lake )
