That's your opinion and you are perfectly entitled to it... personally, I think it's like comparing two eggs.

I'd like to think that with all of Yannies experience that he knows his own end a little better than Ribs.

I really look forward to seeing Ribs as our second-line center this year. He really caught my eye two seasons ago and I've been pulling for him ever since.

GO HABS GO!!

PS - Wouldn't it be nice to start with a victory over the best team in the league??

It lets him adjust while Audette takes the heat and has the expectations to live up to. I suspect that if he keeps playing the way he has been (and I think he will) you'll see Ryder on one of the top lines soon enough. Relax, it's early days yet.
You make some very good points, but I really think that Ryder deserves some more time than just 4th line duty, unless they're going to play all 4 lines pretty much equally...This, I don't think will happen, though.

Now we are talking!!!!...Like I said before, I'm not about to jump to any conclusions, just yet, regarding management...If your quote above is indeed true then they are starting to make some sense!!... Even if Ryder turns out to be a real disappointment (which I strongly doubt) then it would still have been the right decision by management to play him because as it stands right now he probably has the best chances to succeed among young players.
