Ribeiro signed his deal after leading his new team in scoring the previous season despite having missed most of or all of training camp (can't remember, trade happened on Sept. 30, 2006). He was then in the midst of an 80+ point season showing great chemistry with the team's captain. At the time the consensus was that his signing that deal when he did saved the Stars some money AND secured his services for the foreseeable future.

His contract was and still is a very good deal for the player.

Thanks for letting me know. Before now, I didn't realize HF Boards was the only source for Dallas Stars news and information.

High ankle sprain, I believe. His first season he missed time because of visa issues.

OK. So who is "everyone" and "no one"?

Blanket statements rarely have their intended affect.

Also, for the sake of context it's worth pointing out that when Loui signed his bridge contract the Stars were spending closer to the cap. We haven't always been such aware accountants as fans. And we weren't then for sure. Not to the point of b******* and moaning about a sub $2 million contract.

I don't know about any of that, but there is far more "b******* and moaning" about anything and everything these days than there was back then, making any comparison between 'accepted' and 'rejected' contracts meaningless.

Apparently a lot can change in two short years.
