Isles' 2nd rounder (owned by the Ducks) / Ribeiro?
What are your organizational needs? Is it possible that you trade this pick for help in postseason?
Keep in mind Boudreau's familiarity with most of the Caps players.
I remember Ducks fans talking about a need for a center. If we're out of contention and Ribeiro wants to move on, he'll be available for this pick and some highly-touted prospect.
Id say thats about right value for Ribero maybe more. Ribero is so underrated in general, he is a huge pickup for any team going to the playoffs. He is the only reason the Caps have a pulse this season.
No. He was in 3rd period but that's standard for Bruce if team is holding lead or he simply wants a more defensive lineup. He moves Koivu and Bonino up a line late in games which moves Ryan to wing. That will continue to happen until Ryan gets more use to the position.
