I don't really claim to be an inside source (at least, not that I recall) - I just try to pay attention and make educated guesses.
I would certainly make the play for Ribeiro if he is available. He's a great puck-handler and he plays with some attitude, which is always something this team could use. That said, I'm not sure Roy wouldn't be more suited to being a center on this team. The guy works his tail off, and even when he's not producing, he's still contributing to the team. Ribeiro, not so much. I also think concerns about Roy's size are exaggerated. He's built more like Tootoo than Sullivan, and has nearly 15 pounds on Ribeiro.
Either of those guys could really invigorate this team offensively, I just feel like Roy would be a better overall fit, where Ribeiro is a better pure talent. Trotz has very high demands of his centers defensively, and I'm not sure Ribeiro is totally up to that task.
