Saku is more complete than Ribeiro and right now he is better, but he's not far superior.

Mike has better ice vision and is potentially a better playmaker.

Saku has better speed and plays better defensively.Probably a better leader too.

Even if they are small, i have no problem with them being our first 2 centers.
Like you said, there's place for lots of koivus in the lineup.
