Sure, playing Ritchie on the PP seems absurd, but who else goes there? Ritchie is a good skater and has decent hands, its not like he is benching Mike Green in favor of him.
Decent hands?

This guy scored 3 goals in 71 games getting over 12 minutes of average ice-time per game. I think he's dispelled any sort of myth that he has even decent hands. Willie Mitchell got more points then him for heaven's sake. In fact, now that I look at it EVERYONE pretty much got more points then him as long as they played 20+ games. Aaron Miller almost get more points then Ritchie in 20 fewer games, and I think he scored his first goal in like 2 years this past season. Seriously...decent hands?

I even happen to like Vigneault as a coach, but seriously...if a guy has 5 points over 40 games...probably don't put him on the PP.
