If I was Ribs I would ask Gainey for Koivu Money ..and then wave the dirty Sanchez back at some of you guys while I'm playing for the Panthers or some other god forsaken team

1.9 is fine for one year if he manages to notch 70 pts ( hey isn't Koivu getting 4.7 million for about 60 pts )

yeah ...
What part of Qualified Restricted Free-Agent don't you understand? He had the choice of either signing his QO at 1.3 or sitting out next season. He was in no position to negotiate but Gainey just felt like being generious and gave him a raise of $600,000. Ribeiro himself admitted everything was completed without negotiations and finalized by the end of the day.
