Kept hearing Ribeiro was an issue in the dressing room. Maybe that's why he was traded.
You guys should WAIT on Eakin. He scored 91 points in the WHL one year. He's more than a third line player and wasn't going to get that Washington. This is a solid move for Dallas and I can't wait to see what else is coming down the pipe because the money moved in this deal gives us MORE room to make some good offers to FA.
I love this trade. Not a big Ribs fan anymore and he had to go.
Ott and Morrow next?
Side note: The Caps asked about Ribs at the deadline so this has been brewing for a few months now.
Ribs is one of my favorite players but I'm not surprised to see him go. It's been obvious for a while that the team has been wanting to move on from him. His long shifts and playing style have not agreed with the last couple of coaches now. His bad reputation just wasn't enough to get a first round pick in return but I'm going to take a wait and see approach on Eakin.
