Let me be clear. I do not expect any player to be a Mats Sundin. The problem is that in this thread, we are asked to consider what Ribeiro would need to do to get respect. How about asking us what he would need to do to help the Montreal Canadiens win?

My original post is meant to seem hopeless. No player can possibly change all of the thngs I mentioned. That would require a complete change in style and take him away from the game that brought him to the NHL. As far as I am concerned, Ribeiro does not possess the playing style necessary to be effective in the NHL. Therefore, he cannot gain my respect. Far more importantly, he cannot help our team win.
