I don't need to hear it from Gainey I've heard it from Ribeiro's own mouth last season when Saku and Kovy were injured he stated in an interview that he didn't put in the effort to pick up the slack. So call it laziness, lack of heart whatever but on more than one occasion Ribeiro has had the opportunity to step up when it's mattered and failed miserably.
aww shucks, you are correct.
Just thought you were implying that Ribs wasn't working out hard enough. My mistake.
As for what he said...anyone humble enough (my god, am i thinking that Ribs was humble? Err...I don't want to go there...) would probably say the same thing...course the question then becomes, is Ribs humble...it would be rather a long time if ever before people would call him that...
As for him not stepping up, agreed. He has had numerous chances and squandered a lot of them (except 03 regular season). Unfortunately so has a lot of the other players... which means, the Habs does seem to have a lot of room for improvement
