If you have the cap room to make it work, I'd do it. And it's quite nice that you can sit Ryan and be patient for him to (hopefully) come around while someone like Hodgson or Yak is producing. So I don't see the Yak/Hodgson thing as a reason to not acquire Ryan if you can -- you can never have too many good players!
