You said Ribeiro is too soft, but he has 33 hits this year compared to Cullen's 13. I wouldn't be against the Hawks going after Cullen, but I'd much rather they go after Ribeiro. Your arguments against him are pretty poor. His +/- may be -4, but he also plays on a team where more than half the players are in the negatives. It's not a very good stat to use in this situation.

Ribeiro would be a great fit IMO. He hits, he's a great playmaker, and he could help improve the PP. He has 5 PPG and 10 PPA so far. Switch Kane with Hossa and both lines would have someone who's a beast at setting people up.
