Please not another Koivu vs Ribeiro thread, we've been at this so many times its not funny. Can't we just accept the fact we've got a very talented 1-2 punch?

Understood .

Hell no, we are in better shape with both of them in the line up, as we are a hell of a better team with the Theo-Garon 1-2 punch in the net.
Alright , We'll be Ok on the first two lines if Koivu remains healthy and Ribeiro continues to work hard to correct his flaws. All we need now is add some toughness, grit and size for our third line center.
