Mike Ribeiro back in Montreal?
 
"... Mike Ribeiro a confié, quelques heures avant le duel entre les Stars et le Canadien, qu'il aimeraient bien revenir jouer à Montréal."

This is from an article in 985sports.ca ( http://www.985sports.ca/hockey/nouve...en-126452.html )

Translation: "M R confided, a few hours before the duel between the Stars and the Canadiens, that he'd like to come back and play in Montreal."

Ribeiro - 32 years old, 6 ft 177 lbs, $5 mil contract.

Great one for one replacement for Gomez if on a two or three year contract at the same price. The thing is Gomez's contract has to be disposed (bought out? AHL? traded?, etc.)

I wouldn't be averse to the idea. It might, in a way, correct an error made by the Canadiens several years ago.

But, then again, it might just be a 'nice thing to say' to the interviewer.

Must be boring the nightlife in Dallas :laugh:

BobbyFischer* 02-22-2012 07:26 AM

and Dallas trades Ribeiro.... why? and for Gomez? :laugh::laugh::laugh:

Habskrieg 02-22-2012 07:29 AM

NIINIMAA!!! Stars owe us, we should send some ****** player in return. But which one? :sarcasm:
On a serious note, I would take him.

Bronn 02-22-2012 07:32 AM

Ribs is ok but too much of what we already have at C (small and not that physical playmaking centers). Desharnais is pretty much like a mini Ribs.

We need a guy with size who can play physical and create space to complement our other centers and mix things up a bit. Doesn't need to be a star like Getzlaf but a 55-65pts guy with the attributes i mentionned above would do for now.

Monctonscout 02-22-2012 07:32 AM

He can stay there, he looked stoned last night during the game. He would be a more expensive version of Desharnais.

Vasculio 02-22-2012 07:36 AM

A Quebec born player really said what Quebec medias wanted to hear ?! Shocking ! :sarcasm:

Lafleurs Guy 02-22-2012 07:37 AM

I hate Mike Ribeiro. He represents what we should be getting away from and can stay where he is.

WestIslander 02-22-2012 07:38 AM

I would not bring him back, he doesn't fit into our future in my opinion and I think that we need to build this team around hard working youth and the core that we already have, the last think I want is to have Ribeiro take Price and Subban under his wing and start the whole partying thing again.

Thanks but not thanks Mike!

Pax Macioretty 02-22-2012 07:41 AM

If we were ever to trade Desharnais, fine. But if it's to replace Plekanec, heck no. We need somebody bigger for our 1st line.

I wasn't his biggest fan either, but what a ****ing terrible trade that was. Attitude problems, Ribeiro, Grabovski and Kostitsyn all seem to have been put in place by other hockey people in the league, but the Habs weren't able and got junk back for them while those guys are top players on their team

Issues with your reading comprehension much? Go back and re-read the OP so you don't make such a fool of yourself.

When we dumped him (and we did just basically dump him) it was the only time I can remember not feeling bad about getting something of value in return. I just couldn't wait to be rid of the guy.

We talk a lot about building a new culture... a winning culture. Well step one is to get rid of guys like this. Terrible attitude, cocky, arrogant... awful. That ridiculous display against the Bruins years ago where he faked the injury and then smiled and laughed on the bench was an absolute embarassment.

When I think back on the horrible decade of the 00s, Mike Ribeiro symbolizes all the futility and failure. Another small guy with a terrible attitude and no heart. To this day I still don't care that we didn't get a return on this guy. And last night's pathetic display just reinforced that he remains an immature, cocky little pipsqueak.

Good riddance.

We got rid of Riberio once because he never had any class. Remember the fake injury in playoffs against Boston? Why bring him back...just be going in circles

Maybe you missed his arrest last year and Dallas trying to dump him(unsuccessfully) to re-sign Richards.

coolasprICE 02-22-2012 08:05 AM

I'd only want Ribs back if we can reunite him with his boyfriend, Jose Theodore... #sarcasm


What snot balls

MXD 02-22-2012 08:06 AM

Why Montreal do this?

I mean... terrific offensive player, but if you can't get something for Plekanec or Desharnais, what's the point?

Just saying, it would not be a trade but when he is a UFA so no Gomez for Ribeiro only a fool for a GM would make that move lol.

S Bah 02-22-2012 08:56 AM

What part of we need a "Big Center" don't people understand some one that can take the heat off of Plekanec and Desharnais,two hard working small centers that by seasons end are exhausted.Any of the top four forwards this draft can be converted to center,two already are centers,the other two,Yakupov is small and will go 1st anyway Forsberg can play center and probably go 3rd.:handclap:The Flu Bug has helped for those of us wanting a tank,we might need more than that to pick that low.:shakehead Guess what I want?

ThaDevilGirl 02-22-2012 09:01 AM

Lol, he's a good player but Mikey can go **** himself.

That classless act stopped an odd-man rush going the other way.
Yeah, it was embarassing to watch.
He did what he had to to win. I rather that than someone who doesn't do everything in their power to ensure victory.

The Russian General 02-22-2012 09:14 AM

I love the guy. He was my favorite player back in the days, despite his faking. I was at the Bell Centre when they announced the trade and remember people being happy which was ridiculous since we got absolutely nothing back.

Now, I wouldn't mind him back but with Desharnais and Plekanec already, there's no place for another 60 pts centre.

I was a big fan of his until this



When he did that....boy did I just want him gone. And I couldn't agree more with Lafleurs Guy

llamateizer 02-22-2012 09:39 AM
