GM would rather deal with the fallout in the summer, then during the season, of losing Ribs.

I wonder if Ribs kids liking the area help George get him to ink a discounted contract. My gut is now saying a discount will be there. 4x5NTC perhaps.
I know, and I can understand the mentality behind it. In hockey, there are rarely heavy favorites who win it all. Often it's the team who stays healthy and gets the hottest at the right time. If the Caps are in it, McPhee will keep him and risk letting him walk instead of moving him. Seen this song and dance before. Probably just another thing to add to his sorry resume.

Asset Management:

-Semin allowed to walk for virtually nothing asset-wise
-Ribeiro wanted to test UFA market, allowed to walk for nothing after 1st or 2nd round playoff loss. NOTE: traded away valuable assets for a rental.

PS - NO CHANCE Ribeiro takes that when he's the top UFA Center. Maybe if he's represented by Elvis Dumervil's agent....
