Why are you still stuck in the past when it comes to Ryder?? Ryder's deficient defensive play last year has been more than adequately explained by his injury which nagged him all last year. Alot of players would never have even played. But Ryder chose to play through all the pain and suffering and consequently play a very important role in getting his team in the playoffs, by scoring 30 goals. Why do you choose to selectively ignore this? Why can't you see the positives instead? For example, his positive never say die attitude, his work ethic, and his commitment and dedication to the team. Apparently none of these things mean anything to you. why do you think he's so well liked in the dressing? Because his team mates are aware of these things, as well as, his many hockey talents which he brings to the table.
