Ribiero's sons play hockey at the rink where I run a pro shop. I've spoken with him on more than a few occasions when he's been around (and he's had plenty of time to be around), and when I spoke with him the night before training camp was to start, he expressed how happy he was to be back playing and that he really hoped that he'd be able to re-sign with the caps and stay here in DC.

And it wasn't just a line to a caps fan, he expressed how he'd like for his kids and family to be able to be here and not have to move them again.

Point is, I think if he does well and the caps offer him a fair deal, he'd stay without too much thought.

Just the impression I got from the conversation while he was having a coffee waiting for his kids game to start.
