My question to Stars fans is why? Is it because of ownership issues? Locker room problems?

Why would they be trying to move a top pairing defenseman with a $5 million dollar per year contract (and cap hit) through 2013?

The guy has been consistent virtually his entire career so I'm just trying to find out more information.
Assuming Ralph Strangis is right Nieuwendyk doesn't think as highly of Ribeiro as the previous GM(s). Yes he also has off the ice problems. The Stars want to clean up locker room problems a hint why Modano's gone as well.

Now why Ribeiro doesn't have good trade value is another thing. A local person in Bob Sturm who has some connections within the organization said the Stars would love to trade Mike Ribeiro and was trying to find out why Ribeiro didn't have trade value, he did mention specifically Souray's name.
During a interview with Strangis who just kept saying the Stars would like to get some value in return.
