I think he needs at least one player that will work hard in the corners for him, something Ryder did in his rookie year but didn't really do this past year (hernia?). Anyway, if Ryder WAS hurt and IS healthy, I would put them back together and complete the trio with a skilled speedster.. (perezhogin/kostitsyn)... I know the defense might look a bit ugly, but I like the top three lines of:

Higgins-Koivu-Kovalev
Kostitsyn-Ribeiro-Ryder
Perezhogin-Plekanec-Zednik
