Ribeiro. It's close though. I'm a big Filppula fan.

Filppula

Half homer choice, half I really do not like Ribeiro.

But seriously; Filp is 4 years younger, plays a better 2 way game, and IMO last season was just a taste of what's to come from him.

Factoring in diving. Ribiero. Factoring defense. Filppula.

Ribeiro. It took Filppula a move to the wing to reach these stats. His defense is better but Ribero pulls better or equal offense as a center.

Filppula was practically a center on that line for all but the faceoff...

Filppula going forward for sure. Based on last years stats, definitely Flip. His point totals will likely go up for the next few years while Ribs will likely go down.

Ribeiro is the better player right now but I would much rather have Flip on my team. Better defense and doesn't dive everywhere.

I gotta say Ribeiro. Flip needs to show he can perform consistently like last year; I think he will. He's D went a step down last year, imo.
