Ribeiro is a terrible choice as a mentor, lacking most of the character, work ethic, and leadership qualities you would want in such a player. He does have talent though. We already have the types of vets you would want to surround a young player with, in guys like Legwand and Fisher, though if you're looking for someone that can actually score as well, then you're talking more about a guy like Ray Whitney.
