Mike Ribeiro often finds himself at the top of many “most hated” lists. His antics in the past – mostly when he was a member of the Canadiens – have not endeared himself to many fans around the league, but you should not let your personal bias of him affect his fantasy value. Since coming to Dallas, Ribeiro has been extremely consistent and productive.
He posted 59 points last season, and is currently on pace for 35 goals and over 70 points. He is by far the most talented forward on the Stars squad, although that does not mean much. The Stars really like how he and captain Brenden Morrow play together, and with Jere Lehtinen on the shelf for the next few months, look for them to try and bring in a winger. In the meantime, make a move for Ribeiro. He is not a sell high candidate, because we are finally seeing what he can do when he is put in the right environment. He plays consistent minutes on the powerplay, and is given a lot of opportunity to make plays with the puck.
