The players on this list are generally not the most liked among hockey fans.

No one has ever questioned his skill level, though. Since coming to Dallas, Ribeiro has been working hard, and playing a much smarter game. He is by far the most creative Star forward, although that may not be saying much. He is dynamic on the powerplay and adds skill and poise to the first unit. He will lead Dallas in scoring this season, playing the majority of his minutes with Brenden Morrow. If you need assists and powerplay points, Ribeiro would be a smart player to look at.
