He can score, and he has great play making abilities.

However, honestly with our line up of prospects I cannot see Ribs with the habs in 2-3 years unless there is a huge change in his offensive upside (puts on some pounds and becomes a speedster)
I agree with you except...IMHO....in 2-3 years if Ribs "hits the gym" and put on a few pounds say 5'11" 195 lbs he could score 80-95 pts. I say keep him if he shows that kind of dedication.
