You guys are pushing "lack of integrity for the game" get in the way of improving your team? That's awful. If the asking price is Kaberle, you do that deal straight away. He's a PPG player with a soccer attitude, and you guys will LOVE him once he gets near a PPG for you guys.

When Ribeiro scores 70+ points and draws penalties, everyone on the TML boards is gonna fall in love with him and we know that, no need to try and act ethical, because as is natural in society, if it benefits us, then we don't care.

This man here has got it aswell.

I'd never actually seen that video... honestly, he may be a damn good hockey player, but he's playing the wrong sport. He should be playing soccer where diving is acceptable and often results in a penalty for the other team.

How is this more legit? Can you really see Burke going out an acquiring Ribeiro? I don't think Burke has any interest in this guy.

I'll keep Kaberle and just wait to sign Brad Richards next offseason and watch him score a PPG without the antics.

If we are going to LOVE Ribeiro so much, you keep him in Dallas.

I'd like to see them get Ribeiro, but I don't think Burke will deal Kaberle for him. Nieuwy looks to be making that team younger anyways.

I'd take Savard is a second, that being said here are 2 reasons.

1. Riberio doesn't have a banged up mellon.
2. He's younger.

Yes, because that makes a lot of sense for Dallas.

Trading a 1A-1B centerman w/ 3 years left on contract and young PF for 1 year of whatshisface and Stalberg (Another LW we don't need.)

You can find that top 6 forward somewhere else because we don't have one that's available. I hear Boston's Michael Ryder is available.

Who says Ribeiro isn't available? I keep hearing Ribeiro rumors, and I believe that he might get traded.

...and Mike Ribeiro, ladies and gentlemen. Seriously though, it's a legit rumour. There may be nothing to it, but that remains to be seen.

Whoops... I read you're sentence wrong, my bad. I thought you wrote top 6 winger. Geez... (Brainfart.)

What would you add to make the deal better?

Ribeiro is underrated and would be a good fit in Toronto, but I doubt he gets traded to the Leafs as he is the opposite of truculent.

Kessel isn't truculent. Burkie wants truculence in bottom-6 and only as a bonus in top 6.

Never said it would happen, but why is Ribeiro available? Maybe his contract? If so, I would want to gain additional assets to help a team dump salary. Add another to piece to gain a bigger piece. That"s my opinion. I'd have no interest in acquiring Ribeiro on his own. Now go untangle your panties.

The speculation about Hicks and money problems/sale of team and Joe's connection in bringing players like Stalberg to the leafs makes this type of move reasonably foreseeable. I know Neal is a young stud and unlikely to be pried from the Stars.

He's as good as Richards at even strength, according to the stats. Stolen from somewhere on the Stars board...points per 60.

I'd like to see him as #2 center for Dallas if no one wants to give decent value in return.

He's not a salary dump in the sense of being overpaid. He may be a salary dump in the sense that the Stars have an internal budget (45 mil) and we could use the cash for a number one Dman.

5 million is fair for Ribeiro, and no Stars fan has any issue with his cap hit for what he gives you. IMO he would not be on the block if not for the internal 'ownership issues', because the performance legitimizes his value.

You think Ribeiro is considered salary dump?

Ribeiro is forced to be traded in order to balance the salary between the forward corps and defense. The Dallas Stars have too much money tied up in the forward position and are on an internal budget. The Stars management don't want to trade Ribs because that's a lot of offense lost, but they have to upgrade the defense and the only way to do that while staying within the internal budget is to trade Ribiero for a D-Man with a similar contract.

That was when Joe worked for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Neiuwy recruited a bunch of free agents, to add some depth at a particular position. In Dallas, it's a different scenario. Do you really think Dallas needs another LW when they've already got Neal, Morrow, Ott, and Benn filling those spots?

Then, why did you even bother adding him in your proposal?

Just to cap off the stupidity, Stalberg was drafted, not recruited. You guys are thinking of Bozak.

He's not going to run guys thru the boards, but believe me if he's on your team (aka you watch him regularly and quite closely because he is a skilled guy) you will be pleasantly surprised at the timing of his hits.

When he and a player go into the corner with the intention of 'bumping', he generally gets the best of it. He's very solid on his skates for his slight build. Once in a while he absolutely catches someone.

I know Bozak was recruited, but that other Leafs fan (Ritzie) said Neiuwy recruited Stalberg too. I don't follow the Leafs prospects so how would I know.

My post was aimed at the other guy more so than you, for exactly the reasons you pointed out.
