I'm sorry but those guys bring so much more to a team than our one-dimensional Ribs/Dags combo. Plekanec is fast like crazy (playing on the PK, got a breakaway and two almost others). He plays a fiesty game while being responsible in his own zone, and displays the same kind of creativity and puckhandling skills Ribeiro has. Plus he's *so* much stronger on his skates, it's not even close. As for Balej: emotion and speed. Fiesty and competitive (beauty goal tonight again) and very good shot. I'd have no problem trading Ribs if he has some value and gamble on those two for the future (at least with Pleks). I can see Plekanec developing into a strong 2nd line center on a contender. I just can't say the same for little Mikey.
Former: Being the first of two mentioned
Latter: Being the second of two persons or things mentioned
