btw...if ribeiro doesnt want to sign, then trade him. thats easy
huh?

He was very good in EVERY playoff series sans the Tampa series where everyone not named Johansson/Chimera sucked.

In his 2nd playoff game did he not score a crucial goal with less than 2 minutes left to tie it? I thought he was a +4 that series too tho I could be wrong about that.

He was a beast last year vs Boston and NY.

Again..he is a dman.

Backstrom was a #5 overall and in his 2nd year after being drafted made a huge impact and became a #1 center.

Don't act like its unrealistic


Also..like another poster said...why not trade him and if we REALLY want him then go after him as a UFA?

He's likely wanting to test the market out anyhow...

Get rid of Green and Laich. Inquire on Malone/Hartnell if cap casualies or similar players in UFA.
Not having those guys for the majority of this year is a big reason why we are in tank mode now...Malone and Hartnell have both been injured this year and will get fresh new contracts as UFAs so youre not exactly going to be saving a ton of money if you do that
