The Predators want more from Mike Ribeiro next season.

"Mike really needs to have the summer of his life to regain his position back on the top two lines," GM David Poile said.

Mike Ribeiro has one year remaining on his contract and it will probably be his last with the Predators.

He could be a buyout consideration for the Predators this off-season, but that is unlikely to happen because his offense would be difficult to replace. Ribeiro, Filip Forsberg and James Neal were the only forwards on the team to surpass 50 points. Still, Ribeiro struggled mightily in the playoffs and ended up as a healthy scratch in Games 3 and 4 in Round 2 versus San Jose, so his days in Nashville might be numbered.
