I'm afraid I disagree. If you watched Koivu play all over the ice against the Lightning you'd have noticed a big difference. Ribeiro can't play to that standard. He's a perimeter player and he's easily knocked down.

The best scorer? That's only temporary. You'll see. Koivu and Zednik will pass him very soon. Despite missing all those games, Koivu is only 2 goals and 5 assists behind Ribeiro right now. And when Koivu returned, he obviously wasn't skating well. Now he is.
