4 Ever Canucks

[Report] Hockey Central Panel - Mike Ribeiro a good fit for Vancouver

85 posts in this topic

I will be going to sleep tonight dreaming of Mike Ribeiro in a Vancouver Canucks jersy. If there was ever a good fit for us.............. get er done!!!!!! This is our ticket, cash it in! Forget about Kris Versteeg lucky Mike makes it work where ever he goes, the line combinations are endless, and he has the skills to pay the bills. He has the stats to back the facts! Why go with an uncertainty, Mike is our man. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

Gillis will not get him... No point getting your hopes up.

Can't agree with this.

Don't see him as a good fit at all.

Considering Kesler is more effective on the wing, bringing in Ribeiro would be huge for the team. It would be a very good fit actually.

Ribeiro also has something the Canucks need, PASSION! so maybe he whines at times, has been a diver, etc....he has edge to his game and he can produce.

However Washington has been dying for a secondary center, Ribeiro fits that bill, if he won't resign in Washington then Vancouver would be smart to look at him anyways.

I always thought Ribeiro was one of the cockiest players in the game. That being said, he does have a ton of skill to back it up.

Not my first choice, but at least Gillis would be doing something to help improve this team.

We would be 1st in the league for power plays if we occasionally sent out Burrow-Ribeiro-Lapierre.

Probably the 3 most hated french players in the league.

Sure he has the shootout skills, (which we need). But I don't see him being a good fit here.

I think this is just more the case of the hockey peripheral panel trolling...

For the first time (I was previously against bringing him in) but I actually might want too.

I think he can play wing so maybe he would make a good winger for Kesler and Booth as a rental then we let him go in the offseason.

Although only if the price is reasonable.

It would be AWESOME.

If we got him we would be one of the most hated teams in the history of the NHL.

3 of this years top 10 most hated players would be Canucks!

Riberio would drastically improve our team. He has some sick hands and can pass too.

Yeah, he'd fit in perfectly with Kesler!

Chances are we would get Hemsky before we get him. So no.
