I find it hard to believe people are justifying the 2 hander. That is uncalled for at any time and it doesn't make it any less worthy if it happens to be a goalie that has padding. No doubt Osgood embelliehed it, that is disgusting too but what Osgood did was not nearly as violent as what Ribeiro did.

Ribeiro had a closed door meeting with Tippett after the game and Brett Hull was seen shaking his head after what Ribs did. Obviously they don't condone what he did so I am not sure why everybody else does. Ribs can be a great player when he is free to skate but once you get under his skin he is very selfish. He has matured quite a bit the past couple seasons but the selfishness is still there. If any player had given Ribs a 2 hander across the chest then I have no doubt Ribs would still be whining about it, pretending the rolling on the ice was because of a pinched nerve and then laughing at the opponents bench when he is carried off the ice.
