    Thanks Ryder

    For the game four OT winner against the Habs!Hey without that goal B's may have been out in the first round.
    He sure scored some big goals.
    Didn't always play hard but 82 games is a long season.
    He was a good Bruin!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ya. I'll give up some love for Micheal.  He did leave you wanting more but that is because you expect so much from him.  Only the elite can perform on a consistent basis, like he did occasionally.  He did some good things for us.

    I will miss him for sure.  I've always loved the clutch playoff guys, and he gave us some moments.  That OT winner and the goalie save were the stuff of legends.  The Bruins have some character guys to replace with him and Recchi gone.

    Ok it's the 4th, a day off for me and about to eat enough hot dogs to kill a show pony but not enough to kill Kobayashi who is going broadcast himself live opposite Nathan's contest :headscratcher: so I'm felling good.

    Here goes...I hope Ribeiro and his crazy sushi eating drama queen wife don't get you into too much trouble Glyder and do as PC says beat up the East, That's all I got.

    I like Mike! I was also cirtical at times! Bruins lack finish sometimes and Mike brought this to the table.  I hope we can replace that aspect of his game! Not sure the answer is Pouliot but if anyone can staighten him out its the likes of CJ, Chara, Thornton, Bergeron, Lucic!

    He was no a good Bruin.  He was a half hearted hockey player who failed to show up more often than not.  And don't give me the "He showed up when it counted" bull. 

    Thanks for scoring in the playoffs.  Beat it.

    ^^this^^

    Plus, he didn't play 82 games this year.  He played 79 games this year.

    to the OP
    How many players that you know of that "bring it" get benched?

    Agree with him or not, you gotta love NAS. In this case I agree.  The hard working Ryder who we all love just doesn't show up often enough to make up for the frustration that Glyder causes.  Thanks for the 2011 play-off contributions but don't let the door hit you in the A...

    Well you are certainly entitled to your opinion but I disagree.Is he worth 4 mill?Certainly not but I loved the way he competed in the playoffs and would have liked to have him back at a reasonable salary .

    The reason he competed is b/c it was a contract year.  No more no less.  NAS summed it up perfectly.  He was paid to be a top 6 fwd.  His performance was non-interested for the duration.

    Bruins don't win the Cup without his contributions, that should count for something.  This guys three years in Boston were often maddening, but a Cup is a Cup.  Results matter, at least it does to me.

    Agree that it is time to move on without him, way too inconsistent.  At age 31, there is no reason to expect that to improve.  Good call by PC on this round.

    He was on the team.  The team won the cup.  He must be good. 
    That line of reasoning is being used a lot around here lately.  Ryder must be good.

    just remember,the Stanley Cup is won in the playoffs not in the way too long regular season. hopefully the "hard working' player that replaces Ryder  has some scoring talent. and yes he was a 'good' Bruin.

    I would have liked to see him come back on a 1yr deal until Seguin matures some more... Caron likely takes Rex's spot but dunno who will take Ryder's right away...

    I will remember him fondly as a member of the team.  I will also remember the second I ready "Ryder - Dal" just as fondly.

    I am happy he was here and I am happy with his playoff performance.

    That sounds so much better than, "Thanks for scoring in the playoffs. Beat it."...don't you think?

    Maybe not as funny, but better.

    Ten years from now my memory of Ryder as a Bruin will be his play in this year's playoffs. But the Bruins are in semi transition mode, and it's time to move on.

    I disagree with this. His last contract year he was terrible with Montreal. Check you facts pal. He also had a very solid first year with the Bruins

    I'll miss him, personally. I'll take a guy who performs in the playoffs any-day.

    Personally, I feel all professional sports have way too many regular season games. If professional hockey halved the amount of games during the regular season, I'd be a happy man.

    Ryder, I'll never forget the glove save against tomas Plekanec. Thanks for the memories. (to all the haters here, eat a d*ck). The regular season is inferior hockey. I could care less if we glide through it so long as we perform when a championship is on the line.

    I highly doubt you all go to bed smiling thinking about how awesome our regular season turned out...
