Ribeiro will translate in an effective second line center this year...

Habitual just made him totally ridiculous!
I agree with you to some extent...Ribeiro outplayed Perreault in preseason and thus deserves to start as the top centre position until Koivu returns, at which time he should centre the 2nd line...But in order for him to maintain this status he has to show consistency and defensive responsibility...In other words, he has to demostrate to the Canadiens that he has finally matured as a hockey player and really wants to play for Montreal as Ryder has demonstrated so far.
