Also, other teams are now making sure they keep an eye closer on him because we all know that he's the most dangerous Habs with the puck.
Because Ribeiro doesn't follow up the way Koivu does. How can he score goals when he doesn't want to crash the net? He doesn't have much of a shot from the faceoff dots or beyond. If the opponents focus on Zednik and the D leaves the post to go after him, that leaves room for Ribeiro (or any other center).
