And here's a funny poll that shows a majority of HF Boards users thought Gainey actually made a good trade by getting Niinimaa for Ribeiro, or thought it was a good deal for both sides.

I have no trouble believing that those who applauded that trade are now blaming Gainey for doing it. Or maybe they still believe it was a good trade just because we got rid of a player they hated? And they are probably the same retards that want Latendresse traded for a bag of pucks now.

Saddening.
Yup.. Sad... Even today Ribeiro doesn't get half the respect he deserve around these parts. He's a really good hockey player. And it was pretty much apparent how great he would be enventually when he was playing for us.

People tend to give up on the local boy pretty fast. Just because the media likes him doesn't mean you need to hate him. But sometimes on these boards...
