I disagree. People discounted them in the "old" NHL because they lacked size. But in the "new" NHL, size doesn;t matter as much. Speed, strength and skill are paramount now. But even in the new NHL Ribeiro has been largely ineffective because he is slow, soft and a choker. Ribeiro is not and never will be a Briere, Bergeron etc. These players are a league above Ribeiro.
