Well, he's not going to displace Bozak or Kadri, and isn't a winger.

Realistically, we can't replace Grabovski with McClement. We need a guy who has some ability to step up into the top 6, if Kadri or Bozak were to get hurt. McClement is the type of player that should probably be centering a 4th line, when the entire team is healthy, unless you've got a 3rd centre better than him somewhere else in the lineup.

Even this year dispite being on an AWFUL caps team. Ribeiro -5 Bozak -7
+/- is basically useless when comparing two players individually on different teams. However, setting up your players to achieve the best +/- possible is how you win hockey games.

Please don't give away Ribeiro

**** no to Colborne

Maybe to Biggs

He is top 10 in points for a reason and how the hell does anyone on Hfboards know he is a bad influence in the locker room? You don't.

Ribeiro would EASILY and i mean so EASILY take the #1 center position away from anyone in the leafs whole organization.

No, I'm telling you that Tyler Bozak is a better LINEMATE for Phil Kessel (and Lupul/JvR) than Mike Ribeiro. I have no doubt that Ribeiro would help them score more goals, but that difference would definitely be more than offset by the goals against. That line does not have problems scoring goals, where they have problems, is keeping it out of their net.

Phil Kessel is never going to be a good defensive player, the way you insulate that is by giving him linemates with size who are strong on the puck, and can maintain posession in the offensive zone. Tyler Bozak is far superior in that regard.



You're missing by far the most important component -- Phil Kessel's centre needs to be strong on the puck, and successful in the dirty areas of the ice. That isn't Mike Ribeiro. We're better off with a guy who doesn't neccessarily have the playmaking ability, but somebody who can keep the +/- of that line respectable. The way you keep +/- up, is by keeping the puck in the offensive zone. You generally can't be scored on when you have posession of the puck 200 feet from your own net.
If there is one person who can maintain possession in the offensive zone in the league, it's Mike Ribeiro

When making proposals, people should consider he was traded from Dallas to Washington for Cody Eakin + mid 2nd rounder. That was for a full year of Ribeiro. Adjust your prices to a rental of the same player.

I wouldn't take him back for free.

He's soft, selfish, prone to diving and has an off-ice issue that's a deal-breaker that the Canadiens organization is intimately aware of.

Big pass. He can post numbers, but he's not a winner. Good riddance.

Yeah, and the Leafs brought those guys in, and all it's been since then is non-stop winning, remarkable playoff successes and incredible leadership.

Adjust up, not down.

There's plenty of evidence to illustrate that prices go way up at the trade deadline, not down.

It's way cheaper to acquire a guy in the off-season then it at the trade deadline. I suspect he will go for a 1st and a prospect rather then a 2nd and a prospect.

That was a full year that might never have been due to the lockout. That risk lowered the price during the offseason, and that risk is no longer present.

There is the fact that he could be a rental, but still you are right that's ridiculous.

34 points in 31 games and I forgot that you know everything about Ribeiro and what he does off ice.

This makes 0 sense to me as a Leaf fan. The issue with the Leafs is a lack of size at C or the lack of a true #1 C. Ribeiro is neither...

Maybe so, but the difference between Ribeiro and Kadri wouldn't be substantial considering they are very similar players. So why would the Leafs give up a top asset for a UFA when they can promote within?

You have to understand that Leafs fans are extremely paranoid of trading 1st round draft picks, and for good reason.

I would love Ribeiro.

Depends the cost, as I don't see the leafs giving up a 1st for him.

Something around Grabovski and Ribeiro makes sense if the Caps are worried about resigning him.
Leafs then move Bozak to the 3rd line role.

Grabo + ____ for Ribeiro ?

Ribeiro, Kadri would be a great 1-2 punch.
