Good to see someone not excited like a little girl over Ribiero's play... He is doing what he has do do in this preseason but I have doubts on him being able to do so on a consistent basis in the NHL.

Not that I wish him the worst ( I wish he becomes a 60 point center as much as the next habs fan ) , its just that its a known fact that Ribiero can dominate the type of aforementioned hockey. When the game gets faster and tighter ( regular season ) then I'll pronounce my verdict.
