One play last night summed it up for me.He crossed the line with some speed, Higgins or SK was parked at he line, just behind him, a d man was angling towrds Ryder. He dumps it into the corner, the d man finsihes the check, easy break out. If he drops the puck, he cruise behind a d man, Kost. has some space and can make a play.

If he's an afterthought playing alongside Lats and Lapierre, sure dump it in, that's their game, but he's not.
I think he's lost his game. He could get it back, but I think blaming anyone is just an excuse. It's tougher right now without a C on the line, but he's not a rookie anymore, show some spunk.
That's problem, he doesn't know who he is playing with or if he is playing...the confidence is gone and it has effected his play, he doesn't know what style type he is supposed to play anymore.
