Ryan White has signed a one-year deal with the Canadiens, and this is good.
Because we need a guy like Ryan White, out there getting his nose dirty. Providing a spark when the bigger stars are in a funk. A good blue-collar prairie boy from Brandon, Manitoba.
White, just 23 years old, provides as much grit as anyone on the team. He’s not an offensive star by any means, but he’s an NHL regular because he works hard, stands up to bigger players, comes to the rescue of his smaller teammates, and scores the odd goal with great flair and enthusiasm.
I’ll just bet there’s a lot of teams who would love to have Ryan White.
But they don’t. We do. Ryan White is a Montreal Canadien and we’re happy that he is. Have a great year, Ryan. Help the team go all the way. Then sign a multi-year, big money deal and stay a long time.
