But hey, don't let the facts get in your way, keep churning out your false assumptions based on...I don't know, what are they based on exactly? Never actually having watched the abovementioned players outside of Montreal?
I stand/sit corrected...been wrong before! I was basing Ribeiro's playoff stats on 2-3 seasons ago... 'Cause recent 17pts in 18 games is excellent: I respect that a lot, there's nothing I like more than a player who can deliver in playoffs (but I still can't like Ribeiro!). I shouldn't comment on Ribeiro anymore! I just really didn't like him wearing the CH. Muller, Koivu, Gilmour...yes, but didn't like Ribeiro shaming the CH jersey. Ribeiro's been good for Dallas...

Grabovski: don't want him for our Habs but like you wrote...maybe he will be good for playoffs, we'll see. I still want to think that he won't be a playoffs player. The Leafs are definitely giving him many chances...low depth with centers will do that...same with Dallas.
