Give this kid a break. You guys are a bit too harsh with him. Com'on... It's funny to see how some people reacts. One week before the start of the season, Ribeiro was doing pretty good in pre-season games. Then, I remember you guys bashing the **** out of him, saying that we should trade him now for a bag of pucks, because he won't produce when the real season starts. After the Canadiens' 7th first games, Ribeiro was doing great while Koivu was injured. Ribeiro was then treated like a god. Some fans even came out with those crazy Koivu trade ideas.

Two weeks later, Koivu came back from injury. Ribeiro was playing so-so hockey. Koivu went scoreless in his first games. The fans, unhappy once again, came back with those Koivu trade proposals. Now that he re-gained you people's respect by playing good, you bring back the Ribeiro bashing. Anyways... IMO, Ribeiro can become a decent 2nd liner.
Agree or not, You can't argue with the fact that he has exceptional vision and creativity on the ice. He has the best stick-handling in our organization.

- one infamous fan.
