ribeiro's problem is that he's a talented guy but slacks off way too much in the offseason and plays like the game is a joke. he has this cocky mentality that rubs many the wrong way, but with this coaching staff (well jarvis and gainey)...we saw a changed ribeiro. one who paid the price to make a play. he was battling in corners and not playing like a 'creampuff.' ribeiro played really well in the playoffs, he just couldn't score (many people had this problem against cam ward throughout the playoffs). he cant run into a hot goaltender in every game, so i expect him to play much better this season with his improved linemates.

yes, 65 points for a second line center is good. but with his linemates i expect 70+ points. i expect more from saku.
