Pleks buys into the system, plays defensive hockey and knows what his role is. He's a team guy, Ribs never was.
Fine he's doing ok in Dallas. But he's playing like 10 minutes a game and mainly on the PP unit. Dallas can afford playing him like that and he's doing awright. Good for him. But honestly, who gives a ****?
I'll take Pleks low numbers (playing on the fourth line with Begin and Murray/Downey as your linemates will do that) over Ribs asstacular attitude.
This isnt EA's NHL series you know...
I don't care about his so call qualities....but I am pointing out to 96% of the posters that were saying that Pleks would put up BETTER numbers than Ribs that the numbers are not there and he played with Kovy and Samy on the second line for at leaste 10 games.
Conclusion, it is not as easy as it seems to get 60-70 points in the NHL and Pleks might achieve that in the EA's NHL series but not in the real world.
