Dallas News.com reported on Mike Heika’s piece that salary concerns and a wealth of options could lead the Dallas Stars to trade center Mike Ribeiro. Among the individuals Heika pointed to as replacements at center, Perttu Lindgren of the AHL’s Texas Stars could be a possibility.
I believe Ribeiro is a reasonably priced second-line center when he is playing well. But with players such as Tom Wandell, Jamie Benn, Aaron Gagnon, Perttu Lindgren, Ondrej Roman and Tomas Vincour as possible centers, maybe the Stars would be willing to take a chance and move Ribeiro for a defenseman.
