  • Mike Ribeiro: Heading toward retirement
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ribeiro could be forced to retire due to his struggles with alcoholism, according to his agent, Richard Labbe of La Presse reports. Ribeiro's agent Bob Perno revealed that the center had relapsed in his recovery from alcoholism, which is likely to end his 17-year NHL career. "He's not training and he's not on the ice anymore," Perno said. "There is not a single NHL team or even a European team that has called me to inquire about his services."

  • Ribeiro cleared waivers Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports. Predators GM David Poile left some hockey fans in a frenzy with his decision to waive Ribeiro -- who is second on the team with 21 helpers in 46 games -- but the move actually isn't all that surprising with consideration to his $3.5 million cap hit. According to Adam Vingan of The Tennessean, the big club plans to assign the veteran pivot to AHL Milwaukee. This could be a prime opportunity to buy low on Ribeiro on the off-chance that he digs his way out of this less-than-ideal situation.

  • Predators' Mike Ribeiro: Placed on waivers
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ribeiro was waived by the team Friday, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. After being a healthy scratch for the Predators last three outings, the brass have decided to place Ribeiro on waivers. The center may be a long shot to be claimed, despite his four goals and 21 helpers, when you consider his $3.5 million cap hit. If he does clear, Nashville may decide to keep him up in the NHL, rather than immediately sending him to the minors, until they need a spot on the 23-man roster. Additionally, there are no guarantees Ribeiro would agree to report to AHL Milwaukee, which could create a whole new wrinkle to this saga.

  • Ribeiro was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Penguins. The veteran Ribeiro is lost in the shuffle in the Music City right now, and a change of scenery might do him some good. He is on pace for 43 points, which would be his lowest total since the 2002-03 season. As such, he is only worth a look in deeper fantasy pools at the moment.

  • Ribeiro posted an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 OT loss to the Sabres. Ever since sitting out two games as a healthy scratch earlier this month, Ribeiro has responded with three assists in five games. So it looks like whatever message Preds coach Peter Laviolette was sending to the veteran pivot has been received loud and clear. Still, Ribeiro's lack of goal scoring this year remains a concern -- he has just four on the year and hasn't netted one in over a month. He's safe to activate for now, but Ribeiro remains a fringe fantasy option at best.
