I disagree that he is the best second-line center we have. Yannic is. He's 25 goals in the bank and the best faceoff man in the league. I don't know <i>what</i> Ribeiro is.
To suggest that Ribeiro has better vision or creativity than Koivu is absurd. (And I'm not suggesting you are; but some do.) Koivu is the superior talent in every way, and comparing them is an insult to Saku, IMO.
Ribsy better enjoy wearing that jersey while he can, because he's not a Gainey player and he'll be gone the moment Higgins steps up to take his place on the second line.
