I think that there's a good chance that Ribeiro has already gone through his peak, and that his
Point-Per-Game seasons are behind him. He'll probably settle back down into a 20-to-25 goal 60-to-70 point 1B/2nd-line center for the next few years. Nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't exactly leave me in dread at the thought of facing it six times a year. Besides, Pleks-Cammy would be just as good as Ribeiro-Kessel, and maybe even better.

All that being said, I doubt Dallas trades him. Word is that Modano might be leaving Dallas (and he's nearing retirement anyway), and Dallas will need a good 2nd line center to backup Richards.
