Ryder is a selfish player and he just think to one thing ; his own stats . That's why he 's playing that way ; it's not that he doesn't trust his linemates , it isn't because the coach asks him to control the puck , it's because he only thinks that if he can score , he will have a big fat contract .Period .
I think the coach is trying to get him to round out his game, to improve his passing and playmaking abilities and to learn how to fish the puck out of the corners. I think he's doing this because they see Ryder as a long-term fixture on the team. If this wasn't the case, why hasn't he been benched yet?
