My point is that you're just a kid, probably around 17 years old, and you have no clue what you're saying.

Ribeiro is not "always criticising[sic]" and he surely isn't an "emo debbie downer". He's offering feedback when asked a question and I'd take his word over anyone else who hasn't played in the league or Montreal any day.

He's right, fans are too hard on Price and Halak. He's right, talented Montreal players do toil away until they leave*. He has experienced all of this and knows it.

*My argument for that is the following: Our lack of system, cohesion or identity really harms prospect development (look at: D'Agostini, Pacioretty). In a few years when the team has a solidified core (Cammy, Gio, Gomez, Markov, Pleks and Price) things will get better. Hopefully in time for Kristo.
