I didn't post back then but I'll chime in this time. I think that Ribeiro gone is a positive at this point, this guy was obviously atrocious in the locker room. When the GM or coach would point his bad performances, he was always replying that it wasn't he didn't played that bad to the media. That was one of the thing I hated the most about the guy. Also, he doesn't look like a serious athlete. This guy doesn't work-out enough for an nhler and he has the mentality of a teenager. Good ridance.
Now about Niinimaa, I think he's paid too much but he could rebound. After all the cap hit of this trade is only 500k and we get some desesperate help at the blueline and it allows us to dump Traverse in the minors for good. I think this trade is good and it will help us to get faster and bigger at the blueline. I'm pretty sure Niinimaa is still a decent puck-mover and that's what we needed the most to ignite all the offense with our skilled and fast forward core.
