Same ratio.

But we have to admit that Ribeiro can make anyone looks good, just like Koivu.

Zednik is alright. We just use him too much...He should play on the second line but he have good chemistry with Koivu so, for now, he play on the 1st.

We cannot have only superstars in our top 6.
He might score well with Ribs, but he plays better overall with Koivu. I'll admit I don't like Ribs much after the stunt he pulled in the playoffs, but I agree he's a good passer and can help his linemates score. But besides good stickhandling, passing and shooting, he's a liability. He's slow, and he's weak. He ends up putting Zednik in situations he's not strong in. With Koivu, you see Zednik on the offensive more and he just fights harder for the puck.
