That was not my point, I think I have been misunderstood here. Ribeiro, as I said in my previous post, is actually
this line on his shoulders, and if Mike wasn't there to set up plays for Marcel and Richard, this line would be a pain to watch. Eventually, when Ribeiro will have a tough night, you'll realize all of sudden all three look bad. I think Hossa isn't looking quite as good as people say he is... I'd say it's more Ribeiro making him look good. Big difference. With that being said, I don't feel Ribeiro would be a #1 center, Koivu is. But he's injured. We have no wingers injured (except for Kilger and Langdon), and Hossa is still #1 left winger. Something's not right here.
