Ribs has 2 strikes against him... Major lack of strength and quickness... You may be weak but still have the quickness to make a name for yourself in the big league... You may be an under average skater but having the strength on your side to have some succes in the NHL but when you signifiantly lack both strength and quickness you are in big trouble at this level.. Add to the fact Ribs would have difficulties to beat a Pee-Wee goaltender with his weak shot and you will have a better idea why most fans have little hopes regarding Ribs's future..
The way the game is played today, you have to have what it takes to compete in this league.. Sutter said it best, you cant win the cup without a fast team..
Unless Ribs improved his weakness a big deal, I cant see him survive one more full season with the Habs, as much as Ribs improved our team over Perreault centering our second line few years ago, as much as Pleks would improve our team over Ribs centering our second line.. Jonhson or Bonk centering the third...
