UFA at season's end, great stats on a bottom feeder team and the Canucks could use another center (Jordan Schroeder has been good but he's too small for the bottom 6 and not scoring enough for the top 6) and someone to help with the PP. What would the Caps want? I'd have to think that a lot of teams will be bidding for his services.
I think his price will be inflated if there's a bidding war (and if he's available, there will be). We traded for him when the season was in jeopardy so it was a high-risk move.
I think 1st and prospect slightly worse than Eakin will be the price (considering how late your 1st is going to be). Anyway, if Ribeiro wants to stay in Washington, he won't be up for sale.
Yes, huuuuuuge pass to a player who would be first in points on our team which often has difficulty scoring...
The Canucks already have hated players, adding one more won't change any dynamics. Ribeiro has talent, that's all I care about. Him and Lapierre chirping at the same time would also drive teams insane.
