The Canadiens have traded Mike Ribeiro for…well, who cares? What’s important is that they traded Mike Ribeiro. The fact that Saku Koivu’s eye appears to be ok, combined with a rather pressing need for blueline help prompted the move (it was Janne Niinimaa coming the other way) allowed them to make the move. This frees up some space at center for guys like Tomas Plekanec and Steve Begin.
I just never liked Ribeiro. Nothing against him personally, I just don’t like watching guys who’re too cute with the puck and seem to float a lot of the time. But hey, good luck to him in Dallas.
