In an interview with The Arizona Republic, general manager Don Maloney said behavorial issues with Ribiero led to the buyout after one year of the deal.

"Mike had some real behavior issues last year with us I felt we could not tolerate going forward," Maloney told the newspaper. "To his credit, he has been getting help this offseason and obviously would hope he continues. But at the end of the year and all the background checking and what happened, we felt that for us to move forward, we couldn't have him a part of this team."

Ducks get Kesler in trade from Canucks

Friday, 06.27.2014 / 6:46 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Kesler did his research and decided he has a better chance of winning the Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks than with the Vancouver Canucks. That's the reason, and the only reason, the center waived his no-trade clause to permit a trade to the Ducks on Friday.

Vancouver traded Kesler and a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft to Anaheim for center Nick Bonino, defenseman Luca Sbisa and Anaheim's first-round and third-round picks in the 2014 NHL Draft (Nos. 24 and 85).

Kesler has two years and $10 million ($5 million salary-cap charge) remaining on his contract.

"I'm going to Anaheim to win a championship," Kesler said. "That's going to be my sole goal and my team's sole goal. That's basically it."

Speaking before the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center on Friday, Wilson summarized those issues as a feeling that the players were "co-workers, not teammates" and that is the main thing that separated the Sharks from the Kings.
