"I believe he's made great strides from last year until now," said Stars co-general manager Brett Hull. "He's just scratching the surface. It's not a one-hit wonder type of season."


Yes, I'm sure his 36.8% shooting percentage is sustainable. Good thing you're off TV now, Mr. Hull.

Of course Ribs is overachieving because he is looking at a new deal. Looks like the Stars haven't learned anything from those big signings.

HAHAHAHA, just shows that Hull was a great player who doesn't understand how to judge other players talent.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Tri nailed it exactly at a team way overpaying at 5 million a year.

It's amazing how so many of us can see that Ribeiro can't possibly do this again but NHL professionals don't.

haha awesome, nice find.

It is slightly unfair to the Stars to rake them over the coals for this given the market for centers this offseason and the fact that almost all of them will get overpaid, but the problem is that Ribiero is really only a league average player - he's small, he doesn't skate very well, and he rarely shoots the puck. He's got a good shooting percentage for his career and is a solid passer. But he's never been good defensively either.

The Devils' deal for Zubrus looks 10 times better even if Zubrus hasn't worked out as a center. Hell, who would you rather have at center over the next 5 years, Ribiero or Elias for a million dollars more a season?

Not a great deal but at least he is only just coming up to 28.

If he can maintain his performance at around the same level for 2 and half years of that contract he might be worth it.

His numbers are steadily getting better, so who knows.

I expect the Stars GM tandem will be getting a lot of phone calls around Febuary from other GM's hoping to cash in on some inexperience.

i remembered somebody on this board called it. i just thought it would happen in the off season. dallas made a big mistake here. i'd be interested to see how he plays from this point on now that he's got his contract.

The problem is not the signing - he's been a good player for us. The problem is that he *is* our best scorer. My, how the mighty have fallen.

"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.

sigh.

gomez was one of the worst signings of last off-season.

as an analogue, marc savard got paid $5 million a season after 05-06 - he scored 97 points, after having averaged a point a game pre-lockout with some injury troubles. savard is far better than ribiero but they are analogous players (slow-ish playmakers who've had discipline/injury problems in the past). Salaries have probably gone up 10-15% since then, but are you really contending that you would sign this Ribiero for like 4.2 million back in 05-06?

also i'd make a long point about marginal value but that's probably lost on you

I'll admit I dont know much about Ribiero, but maybe they are hoping that 3-5 years from now with the cap increases' each year(most likey) it would be a good deal for them.

Signing players when theyre hot is just a moment of passion and worthless money. They cant seriously expect him to play he did this year, and when this guy is 33-34, 5 mil isnt worth it.
