Mike Ribeiro to the Rangers

He's set to be a UFA this summer.

The Caps have been atrocious this season giving up a league wide 3rd worst 41 goals in 12 games.

What would the Caps want/need in return for Ribs?

Early 2nd + A prospect/young roster player
Late 1st + B prospect/young roster player
Mid 1st

And that is if he doesn't want to re-sign. If he does, we'll keep him.

Dude, why? Tortorella and Ribeiro is not a good match and that's a lot to give up for a rental considering we took a heavy hit to our prospect pool with the Nash trade. I know we could use another forward but I'd prefer it be a 2nd round or 3rd round pick moved for a lesser guy.

I don't see how he fits the Rangers line-up or how he would fit the teams identity. Sure he's an upgrade offensively over Step but we have a lot of core players needing raises this summer. We won't have a ton of extra room for moves like that. If we can pay Step a reasonably cheap bridge contract we'd rather do that then pay twice the money on a potential bad apple in Ribeiro.

Why?

C is set. And our prospect pool is not as good as it used to be.

"Potential bad apple"
I don't see how. I haven't heard of any problems in DC. I know he was a party guy earlier in his career, but things have changed, I've read him talking about it.

No way, jose. Especially if the price is a 2nd rounder plus a decent prospect. I don't even want him on this team for free.

We have Rattie+2nd on the table from STL, gonna be tough to beat that.
How about Skjei, 1st for Ribeiro, 3rd?

Why would the Rangers even want him? Richards-Stepan-Boyle is totally cup caliber center depth, baby!

Maybe in a general sense he isn't but Torts is a bit more picky then some. Rangers aren't about to fix what isn't broken. They finally have an identity and I don't know Ribeiro fits it. And like I said this is all moot. With the raises we need to give this summer I highly doubt we'd have much room for a questionable move.

It's not gonna work. Torts would swallow him whole.

Actually the C depth improved to the point where Boyle got benched, and when he does get back in he'll be playing wing. But nice try.

Yeah Ribeiro may fit in well in another place but I doubt he comes to the Rangers. And the Rangers won't be looking to move any significant prospects (McIlrath, Fast, Skjei, Miller, etc.) because there system is a bit depleted from the Nash trade.

Not sure why we need Ribeiro. I mean, sure, if he was a "price is right" rental and we were just loading up for a playoff run, depth like that never hurts, but I'm not sure how he fits the lineup, or the identity, right now nor why we would want to part with a 2nd and Skej for a few months of this guy, who we would absolutely have no intention of re-signing.

Considering how much you traded for Nash, I find it very funny you wouldn't even consider trading a 1st for Ribeiro, since he has consistently out produced Nash year in year out, and would dramatically help the Rangers offense.

I don't even want to trade him as a Caps fan, but Ribeiro is an elite 2C and if he's traded, he will fetch alot at the deadline.

Good post. Often times people get caught up in a name and dont look at productivity. However Nash has some term.

If moved and I doubt it,Ribero is easily going to get a 1st. Look towards the Guastad deal and think more offensive fire power.

He must have started that back up again right after his trade to Washington because it definitely wasn't the case in Dallas. He fights through more checks than a lot of players, isn't afraid to go into the dirty areas, and has a remarkably high compete level. It's a pity his game has devolved so much in such a short time...

Not a good trade. Ribeiro is reminiscent of Lapierre in terms of personality and I cannot see him coexisting with Torts. Likewise, players like that who are forced to "contain" their attitude tend to suffer productivity decline. New York is running a good rookie trial right now and ought to stay the course. Hasn't Stepan and Miller been quite good? The Rangers are slow out the gate but I wouldn't be ready to start making trades just yet.

He hasn't done any of that, it's just more ignorant fans stereotyping.

He's been nothing short of amazing in Washington, even moreso when you factor how bad there rest of the team has been. It feels like he's in on over half the goals scored.

It's just obvious there is no fit for him in New York. It's been beaten to death but between the raises that are due and us not looking to deplete out prospect pool there is just no way. As long as the Rangers stay healthy I think they are set. Just stay the course. In a cap world you can't just make moves like these for poops and giggles.

While I don't particularly want Ribeiro or think he would fit the mold of our team, nor would I condone giving up prospects to pick up a player that we don't need (not that firepower is bad, but we're not filling a hole, just adding another gun), the cap has nothing to do with it. He's a UFA at season's end. We wouldn't be interested in re-signing him though, because of players needing new deals, and that just makes him even less worthwhile for us, as we'd have to use assets to get a guy we know we're not interested in keeping.

Didn't realize his contract was up. Well then even more reason to not give up our future.
