And that is one and only asset. He has above average speed but everything else about Patches is sub average. His defense, his hockey IQ, his vision, his passing, his stickhandling...hell you rarely see a body check from him and he's what 6'3" - it's mostly swipes from his stick.

Many people on this board overrated him. He is what he is (to quote an overused phrase) and we can't expect more from him. I'm not surprised by his play.

Many people on this board don't like Ryder but Patches is another Ryder with even less of an overall game.
