It all comes down to what is the cost of acquiring Ribeiro and whether Toronto feels they've got a really good chance of reinking him.

Acquiring Ribeiro would give us him and Kadri as our top 2 offensive centers. People will point out the flaws in Ribeiros game but who else are we going to acquire that has anywhere near his offensive upside without giving up the entire franchise between now and next year?

Bozak/Grabo can both play the third role but honestly I wouldn't be sad to see either traded or in the case of Bozak us just walking away from him in the summer. I certainly hope we don't give Bozak a multi year deal over 3 million. This guy is the latest version of Moore or possibly even Stajan when they were Leafs.

McClement is a beauty stopper that has added a lot to this team and needs to play 3rd line minutes whether it's at center of on the wing (then as our top PK guy). We've also got Colborne almost ready for the show who can be groomed into a 3rd line center and Komarov who at the very least is an excellent 4th liner center.
