Mike Ribeiro has one assist during the Stanley Cup Playoffs and five giveaways to go along with a Corsi For percentage of 46.4 % during 5-on-5 play.
Simply put, the 36-year-old hasn't done much. He hasn't brought a spark to the roster and his slow playing style hasn't added any sort of advantage to Nashville.
In steps Pontus Aberg.

There is no better time to make your NHL debut than in a near must win game on home ice.
Aberg lit the lamp 25 times and added 15 helpers in 74 games with the Milwaukee Admirals this season. That Swedish third-line is going to be fun to watch at the very least.
