[QUOTE] Everyone here is crazy. You want to replace Ryder on the power play with Seguin? You expect the powerplay to get better when you replace our leading goal scorer with the man advantage with a rookie. If not Ryder you'd put our least defensively responsible forward on the blue line instead of a defencemen who can move the puck. I'm really losing faith in this forum if so many people consider these good ideas. PP goal scoring leaders Month of Dec. PP goal scorers Ryder 6 Dec. 23 Ryder Recchi 4 Dec. 16 Lucic Horton 3 Dec. 15 Ryder Bergeron 3 Dec. 9 Lucic & Ryder Lucic 2 Dec. 7 Recchi Chara 2 Dec. 2 Recchi Seguin 1 Dec. 1 Bergeron

I was afraid someone would point out these stats because these stats don't tell the story at all.
Who has Ryder scored those PP goals against this last month? The Islanders, Buffalo and Atlanta, either push over teams or a blow out game. And if you look at the goals on the pp, more often than not they are when things gets scrambly, not when the set plays are working.
If you want to looks at stats, look at the most set play of all set plays - the shoot outs. How has Ryder done on those? And how has Seguin done?
I'll give in to these arguments for a minute and agree that the set power play guys are fine, but even in that case guys are having off nights, and there are nights where Tyler should be rewarded with PP time, then this argument can go somewhere becase then we can compare apples to apples and compare Seguin against other people on the PP on some basis.
Think about this for a second, you punish the kid by making him sit, but what about rewarding him?
If its children, pets, employees or players, always using the stick and never the carrot isn't the way to go.
