i will never trade Ribeiro, but i will trade Koivu if i was Bob Gainey because:
- Rib is young
- Rib is not expensive
- Rib is a star rising and he is improving alot compared to 2 years ago
- Rib is french speaker (many quebecers need that )
- Rib doesn't have a great value according to others DG.
If he can add about 10-20 lbs of muscle, he (6')is a much better center than Koivu (5'10). Do you think in 2 yrs, Rib is unless as good as Koivu right now ? If people consider themselve as Hab's fans. They have to support the team with or without their favorite player.
We were discussing his value, not if he is better than Koivu or not. There are other threads completely dedicated to that discussion. I really don't want to discuss it here. :mad:
Second of all you might want to try again, but put (No Habs Fans) in the title. Most people will respect that.
Good Luck if you try it again.
Thanks, but there seems to be a conscensus about Ribs; I don't think I'll get a much different answer on the trade board. I'm actually a little surprised at the value given to Ribs... I wouldn't have thought he would be on the same level as Comrie so fast. Even if he pulls off another season like this one, I'm not sure if I'd value him so highly... Although if he put on some more weight, then maybe my opinion would change.
well, thanks to everyone who posted... I'm glad to have been able to read so many civilized posts without having another you-know-who VS you-know-who debate errupt.
