Pretty similar if you ask me: player everyone knew had the tools but failed at making the team full time.

The only difference? Ribeiro had a much closer look and actually DID something for us in his brief time. Hmm...

So does this mean Grabs will be a lesser version of Ribeiro? I mean, their styles at this point in their career do look kinda similar.
Grabovski was not traded for the same reasons as Ribs.
He was also just a prospect, not the established 2nd line center of our team.
Both of them had attitude problems I guess but the Ribs trade does not equal the Grabs trade.
Even if Grabo becomes a great player and has a great season, Ribeiro was already established into an average player.

Also, we got Niinima for Ribs, whereas for Grabs it lead to Lang/Pateryn.
In no way are they similar.
