Ribs doesn't have to work harder in the gym, he just has to be like the other small and talented players out there like Gretzky and others were...play with your skill and play within your own game. Gretzky didn't go out there and try to be a checker or try to flatten players, why does Ribs try that then when the offense isn't working? He is never going to knock you over with a bone crushing check or take the puck from you in that manner, but if he uses his intellegence and pure hockey skill which he has more of over about 90% of the players he plays against he will play better and his line will play better too.

If Ribs concentrates on scoring and scoring alone he will be fine, with maturity and confidence he will realize that he has to play like that to succeed in this series or in any game for that matter.

When Ribs plays offensively and carries the puck with confidence he can deek out pretty much any player on the ice, he has to learn to play with what got him there...if he doesn't play that way he won't be affective.

Ribs plays pure offense and is a pure offensive player, he needs to look at this series and look at the other team and challenge them with his skills and he can and will do well with Ryder on his one side and hopefully Perreault on the other.
