He had an atypical fast start and only really hit a slump recently.

Agreed. Best start as a Sen hands down.

Not sure where "slow start" comment is coming from.  He scored his first goal in game #4.  He was producing points early and steadily (8 in his first 10, 11 in his next 10, 9 in his next 10, 8 points with a game to go for his next 10).

His goal production was not where we expected it but he's been playing through a broken finger last two seasons.

SpezD said he had a slow start, but what the rest of us are saying is he got off to a good start this season, whereas normally, he is a slow starter.  So I, too, am not sure where the "slow start" comment is coming from, since it doesn't make any sense.

Makes as much sense as repeatedly insisting that Lazar is excellent.

I dunno, i remember thinking that he needed to get going at the beginning. Especially because we were nervous about his end to the season. Doesn't matter, he's been our best forward for while, we know why he had a terrible end to the year last year and he's playing like a star sniper. Good to go.

Thanks for that breakdown. It really shows that he's turned a corner. Is a 70-point campaign possible? Here's hoping.

Well not lately but throughout the season whenever he goes more than a few games without scoring you hear a lot of the quasi-analysts in the Ottawa circles and even the national ones bringing up his contract saying he's got to live up to it. There's all to often criticism on the guy. I've never regretted getting ryan. I love what he brings on and off the ice and in the room.

The only reason for that is Karlsson's artificially low cap hit. If his contract was signed last year he'd be making $9M and you wouldn't be able to say "highest paid player" when discussing Ryan's contributions.
