Analysis: Ribeiro was considered a major acquisition when he signed a four-year, $22 million contract last season, giving the Coyotes the playmaking center they had sought for several years. He showed flashes of brilliance during his time in the desert, but was benched twice by coach Dave Tippett late in the season while the Coyotes were still in the playoff hunt. Ribeiro struggled with personal issues during the season and finished with 16 goals and 31 assists in 80 games.
