I can hardly wait to see what he can do once Teemu retires and he gets more opportunities then he is already getting.
As you stated yourself, you can understand why Ovechkin has dropped in my rankings. He's trending the wrong way where as Ryan has stayed consistent.
I hear where you are coming from with trends, but that doesn't change the fact that Ryan has never outpointed OV in a single season. Until he does put up better numbers, there's no reason to rank him higher. Ryan doesn't have the upside that OV does.
