Trade Ribs

I say we should trade Ribs is 65point saison is just luck he didn't produce in the playoff no heart or back bone he dont hit anybody dont play diffence and is not a team player at 24y old he wont get better.
They should bench him and put Yannic he whould wake Ryder and Dag .
We should trade him we have far more better player whit the bulldogs if we can get 2rd draft for him we whould be lucky.

I'm one of those who hates his style and lack of many assets, but the guy is for real. He has good skills and will eventually put even more points. The thing is, he produced this season and he will do better later in his career.

There's too many "post-season theards" ............ Our team is still in the playoffs so lets keep this for the off season.......

Plus, stop asking for ppl to get traded everytime they are on a low............

Last week: Theodore
This week: Ribeiro

Who's next?

he's onyl 24 and he won't get better?

heh?

Players hit their prime from 28 to 30 yrs old. What are you on?

Anyways, I am not in any way defending Ribeiro..

If we can move up big time in the draft by trading him then why not.. but it surely won't be Perreault that will wake up DAGENAIS.!

Ribs will never improve significantly if he doesn't work harder in the gym. It's that simple. I could actually see his numbers go down as other teams starts keying on him more.

Ribs doesn't have to work harder in the gym, he just has to be like the other small and talented players out there like Gretzky and others were...play with your skill and play within your own game. Gretzky didn't go out there and try to be a checker or try to flatten players, why does Ribs try that then when the offense isn't working? He is never going to knock you over with a bone crushing check or take the puck from you in that manner, but if he uses his intellegence and pure hockey skill which he has more of over about 90% of the players he plays against he will play better and his line will play better too.

If Ribs concentrates on scoring and scoring alone he will be fine, with maturity and confidence he will realize that he has to play like that to succeed in this series or in any game for that matter.

When Ribs plays offensively and carries the puck with confidence he can deek out pretty much any player on the ice, he has to learn to play with what got him there...if he doesn't play that way he won't be affective.

Ribs plays pure offense and is a pure offensive player, he needs to look at this series and look at the other team and challenge them with his skills and he can and will do well with Ryder on his one side and hopefully Perreault on the other.

I don't know if I really got your point or even if there was a point at all here. But are you saying Ribeiro has been inneffective because he's too physical ? If it is so that's probably the lamest excuse I've ever heard.

Anyway... To bring up Ribeiro's name in the same sentence than Gretzky (twice..) is nothing short of a sacrilege.

I disagree. Ribeiro has to concentrate on playing within the system. He has to concentrate on playing well defensively and he has to be focused when opportunities present themselves. He just can't allow himself to hurt his team by letting guys like Lecavalier catch up to him and pick his pockets while his goalie has lost his stick.

Players like Gretzky, Lafleur and Lemieux were so talented and had so much skills that they didn't need to think about being physical or about being good defensively. Needless to say Ribeiro ain't good enough to solely concentrate on offense.

Before the playoffs began I didn't think we'd be seeing Ribeiro putting up points like he did in the regular season. But even with these low expectations I was still disapointed. The bruins series were a golden opportunity for him to shine. They aren't particularly good defensively. He had some time and some space to make things happen and he just didn't.

The problem with Ribs is that he's weak physically and he's slow. For all the talent he has he will never be able to make much of a difference when the going gets rough if he never gets faster or stronger.

Oh and just in case you missed it, here's a pic of Ribs and Koivu playing golf. If after seeing this pic you still think Ribeiro doesn't need to work harder in the gym then I don't know what to say. We're not in the seventies anymore. 99% of NHL players simply don't have enough talent to get by without working hard in the gym. Ribeiro certainly ain't an exception. And he's never been known for being a hard worker.

For sure we need to keep him. Unless a great deal comes across. But like we've seen with Sullivan, Briere and co. The market for small talented players ain't very big.

That's MTL for you guys. Play bad , youre the worst that ever played, PLay good and youre in the top of the league. Ribs is young and learning and he's MAD talented. I would like to see him with better linemates (although Ryder is fine thank you but not Dags) to see the results. Next year we should try to find him a left winger with speed skill and size (sounds like Hossa).

Sorry guys this was a sarcasme(sp) my hole tread i was tired of reading all the other bash Ribs tread: Mooch,Vincent the great,and phil76

Ribs is a finnesse player they try to compare him to Koivu rough style of play they are not happy whit is playoff stats but is playing whit Ryder that doesn't score or crash the net anymore and Dag no comment.
Koivu is playing great but whitout Kovy stats on that line is cut in half.
Ribs line need a good winger whit decent hability and grit.
When we have that and if we keep Kovy and the last dead wood goes away
our team is going to by great until then wait for jugement.
All Ribs and Ryder need is experience and a winger.
Where not suppose to be in the playoff and in the second round this year
we have been spoiled Ribs and Ryder beat all expectation so give credit were
it due.
Maybe they will play better in this serie.

I'm still suprised that CJ didnt get it by now. 3 inexperienced players on the same line in the playoffs cant just work more if you have two poor skaters in Ribs and Dags.

Yes. I've read that article that says he worked hard with Livinstone. Great to see. I don't expect him to put up 20 pounds this summer. I just want to see improvement. For this to happen he needs to work hard in the gym like 99% of NHL players do. He's had 6 years to become an adult and look at the pic I posted above. I just hope he ain't the kind of guy to sit back on his newly signed contract (he's a RFA this summer).

I think I'll just have to repeat my comment on Riberio

Is he a good top 6 players on an expansion team? => definitely.
Is he a good top 6 player on a winning team in regular season? => Yes
Is he going to be a factor is playoff time? => Hell no.
Can he get better in the future to become a better person and hockey player => Yes
Is he going to be effective come playoff time? => Hell no.
Is his ultimate potential enough to be the 2nd line centre of a cup winning team? => Hell no.
Is there any sign Habs is going to find someone to replace Riberio next season? (that is.. IF there is a season) => Yes (Lang)

Riberio is a good player but his size, speed and skill combination makes him a superstar outside NHL. In NHL he is just marginal. To win a cup we need a better 2nd line centre than Riberio.

Just my 2 cents.
