Mike Ribeiro is more like a Randy Robitaille. Tons of skill but lack of speed and defensive awareness.
This is my question? What is the intangible that did not translate into statistic that make PM Bouchard a better NHLer than Mike? For now Darz say skating and I think its the most important one. Is there another?
