Yes I watched all games this year. I've also seen the WC and was the first to praise his play. What's your point? I never said Rivet wasn't able to play well, just that he wasn't playing well right now.

I don't know what you're argueing about. I'm talking about his play now. If you think he actually plays well *right now*, we'll just let it die as nothing you will say could make me change my mind. I know what I saw.

I would feel embaressed for this team if that was the case.
Huh... Wasn't Lafleur booed? How many players were run out of town by the fans? What about Malakhov?

So if Gainey does not re-sign Quintal and Juneau at the end of the year, does that mean he's incompetant?

Hey I never said I was in favor of the booing, towards him or any other player for that matter.
