Btw,Ryder(15) is 3rd in Rookie Scoring behind Bergeron(16) and King(16)
Ribeiro needs quicker wingers. Perreault is playing well but what if we replace him with Bulis? And Dagenais has a great shot but should use his physic more. Early in the season, Ribeiro was leading the team.
Hes on pace for 55 points, SO WHAT. He cant play D, hes not much of a goal scorer, and he is to WEAK not just small to handle most other second line centres. koivu may also be small BUT he is strong on his skates and can to some extent slow down other skaters. Ribs cant do that, and i dont think he is gona get much stronger, have you seen how skinny this guy is.
On a side note, for those who dont like hossa then why not Chriss higgins ans a second line centre, hes much stronger than ribs not to mention faster and better defensively. So why keep ribs if hes not a part of our future and trade him now while hes got some value(if hes got any value that is around the league).
Anyways thats what im trying to say.
