Furthermore, look at Ribeiro's numbers at age 20 with Quebec in the AHL and tell me you don't notice a remarkable similarity to what Eller did last year down there.
I hear ya - I would consider Leblanc to be the second best center prospect since Koivu.
Bringing out Rib's Q numbers made me laugh - Jacques Cossette once scored more than 200 points in the Q...so is he Pittsburgh's best-ever winger prospect?
Eller is significantly bigger, significantly better defensively, significantly more mature, significantly better skater, significantly grittier and a better goal scorer than Ribs. I would say Ribs is/was probably a better playmaker, and that's it.
The only reason Ribs played in Mtl in a teenager was because our depth sucked at that time
