What do you guys think Ribeiro would be worth around the league? He's cheap, young, and shows offensive upside with his incredible vision on the ice. On the negative side, he's cocky, somewhat slow, small and weak.

Before the season started, I doubt Ribeiro was worth more than a bag of peanuts to other teams, but seeing as how he's been putting up the numbers so far this season, do you think other teams around the league would give Ribs a second look?
I'd say his value would be similar to Dan Brière. I think he'd have gone untouched ion waivers at season's start but that he could get something like Chris Gratton now...
