If you watch them both play, they both will steer wide of the physical play, which is the reason why Perrault has never been an impact player and why Mike's potential is only as a 55-60 point man.
Perreault and Ribeiro couldn't be more opposite players, they have nothing in common, they're both slow skaters but I actually think Ribeiro is faster, although they have the same deficiencies in the skating deptartment, Ribeiro is wasy more agile and is able to elude checkers and find open teamates, basically Ribeiro has managed to make up for his slow foot speed by being agile and creative with the puck, when Perreault has the puck and is entering the offensive zone, he dumps the puck right away it's his only option cause he can't pass and can't stickhandle...
Edit....Perreault does have a nice accurate shot but this year he's avoided going into the traffic areas to use his shot and whenever he passes the puck he has the same velocity on his pass as on his shot that's why he can't complete a pass to a teamate
