Pleks wasn't ready, Bonk was coming off his own injury and playing turtle like hockey. Ribs was next on the offensive C depth chart and he and Ryder had a particularly bad stretch.
I'm not saying that Ribs had a free pass. He failed to really set himself apart. I'm just saying that when Bonk and Pleks were given a chance to showcase their offensive talents, they both failed. However, in the playoffs (+ worlds) Pleks seemed to put things together. So we'll see what he's got at camp.
