I think it's an experiment that failed us, and I hope it's corrected next year.
All true. I suspect the Ryder's injury might have been a big factor in those lines mixting this year. We did not discuss it because we were unawared of that injury. But Ryder was doing a big part of the job along the boards 2 years ago, which is something needed when you are playing with Ribeiro, this year he just couldnt do it.
Hence why he was put with Koivu and Higgins, 2 hard workers.

If Ryder is alright next year, i would think he got a fair chance at going back on a line with Ribeiro.
