Not only did he signed Traverse two days too early but he traded his second best centerman for an over-the-hill-worse-than-Brisebois- type of defenseman. Another Euro on top of that !
Its strange that all my bashers are always looking rididulous like this in the long run
Carbo played Latendresse with Ribeiro and Kovalev against Ottawa and it didnt work, Dubé said he liked Latendresse with Plekanec way better...
Ribeiro wasnt our second best center.. Just too weak, too slow to be a good one.. If only the guy had a shot but he hasnt... This is a great trade, Plekanec will complement Kovy and Sammy perfectly while Bonk can center a third line easily.. Even without getting something in return, just the fact to get rid of Ribs is a good move.. He was clearly not fitting in the picture, maybe as a spare watching most of the games from the pressbox and replacing Bonk once a while but the guy makes 2 millions..
Koivu and Pleks are clearly superior to Ribeiro while Bonk will prove to be a better option than Ribs this season.. The guy didnt have a good season last year but looks way more dynamic right now.. He has size, skate well, good stickhandler and solid shot... Not the most creative with the puck but bring something different to this team.
Ribeiro sucks face it!
