As for judging Ribeiro from the losing streak we're in, might as well trade the whole team, as they didn't do much better.

I'm higher on Plekanec than Ribeiro because he's much stronger on his skates and faster, but no way would I just hand him a scoring line centering job and get rid of Ribeiro in the process yet. That would be Milbury's way. Let him earn his due.
Makes a lot of sense!
