That's a good point.

I don't know what to think about Ribeiro anymore. My opinion of him has been warped by these boards. I don't like him much as a player, and never have, but I find myself defending him all the time.

Heartless, soft, slow, unclutch, bad attitude, bad chemistry and on and on. It's ridiculous. The guy is not that bad. He's from far ideal, and I can think of lots of potential upgrades, but in the meantime he is what he is: a flawed but talented playmaking center; a guy with only two full seasons, but at an average of 60 points.

Not many 2nd line centers scored 50+ points last year. If Ribeiro gets around 55-60 points, and continues to play like he did after Julien got fired, with the checking and the defensive effort, he's got a place on this team. Even at 1.9 million, at least until a real upgrade comes along.
