I’m saying he’s a good player and being on waivers only means roster moves/cap savings and has nothing to do with how good of a player he is.

Sorry if I misinterpreted it.
I don't think he was suggesting Ryan isn't a good player. I think he was just imitating that type of poster.

Unless I misinterpreted it.

Apparently it has a double meaning. I'll leave the true meaning to everyone's imagination.

Ryan is a dependable player defensively, good FO C , and a solid PKer.

He will be an improvement over Sam , who, in the three game set in Ottawa , was a nifty -3 with 3 shots and zero points.

So yes...he will be an answer to some of the team’s woes.

I never once mentioned Bennett.

I’m just expressing the fact that Derek Ryan was bad this year before he got hurt and he is not a savior. He’s a 4th line centre who wakes up next to Father Time each morning. Derek Ryan will have no positive or negative impact on this team. He does not hit, he doesn’t forecheck hard, he doesn’t go to the net... all things we are severely lacking.

The Flames are also lacking lower 6 forwards who possess defensive acumen.

They are 21st in GA/G in the NHL .

Nordstrom, Dube and Ryan when he plays. Lucic has some but the foot speed is gone. And Dube is young enough to make plenty of mistakes.

He's a HUGE upgrade over Bennett.

Have you seen their defensive posture?

There was a Twitter from Justin Bourne that showed a ridiculously passive D, forcing Ottawa to do precisely nothing

Ward stinks. Now perhaps you can tell me how you feel about Seth Bullock
