Who will be a bigger factor come playoffs?

Ryder or Ribs?

IMO Ryder will be more succesful than ribs in the playoffs. Why? Because he keeps his game simple. Ryder doesnt try and do minor league moves. He shoots, crashes the net and thats it. Ryder imo will also be better becaue he has the size to play a physical game. Ribs still lacks a lot of much needed weight. I really think he is gona get thrown around like a rag doll in the playoffs, espicially if we play the goons in the first round. Some people will argue that by saying Koivu is also small, but Koivu is a rugged player. He has lot of speed to avoid checks, and has much stronger legs and balance to stand up against bigger opponents. Being small is one thing, but being small and lacking speed can be a major liability come playoffs.

Now i could be wrong, and Ribs may prove me wrong, but i dont see Ribs succeeding in the playoffs, like Ryder for the reasons above.
