A heartless pansy flopping around on the ice like a fish out of water. Ribeiro undubtedly has talent but after that display he doesn't have my respect, certainly won't have the respect of the players or refs in the league, and should be a marked man from now on. After showing up the refs like that, I doubt Mike will be the benficiary of too many calls the rest of the way.
I have been a Habs fan all my life and generally have no difficulties cheering for whoever happens to don the jersey, despite some internal misgivings, but I have a feeling I won't be all that upset if Ribeiro gets what is coming to him. Maybe not this season but sometime soon nonetheless. This is a man's league and he'd better learn it in a hurry or his career might be short.
On a brighter note, what a great game from the boys! Go Habs Go!
i hope he gets it next season after gainey trades his a$$ off to some other team.
